The Booklover’s Rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
I just finished reading “The Angel’s Game” by Carlos Ruiz Zafón.
The story takes place in 1920s Barcelona. The protagonist, David Martin, is born into poverty. He is recognized for his literary talent and with the aid of a patron, Pedro Vidal, quickly becomes become a crime reporter and then a hugely successful pulp novelist. David longs to leave the world of pulp novels for more meaningful literary pursuits and accepts a commission to write a story that leads him into danger.
The pace of the story is quick and I had a difficult time putting the story down. My one complaint is that is does not come with a “nice, neat ending.” I tend to prefer that all the loose ends be tied up. Read “The Angel’s Game” and let me know what you think. Have you read it already? Then please leave a comment and give me your rating!
