Earlier today, I posted the following on my Facebook feed:
"The Angel's Game" by Carlos Ruiz Zafón, translated by Lucia Graves. You must read this novel. Yes, you. I will say no more because I don't want to spoil it.
I don't want to post an actual review, because I really don't want to spoil it for any of you. But I will say this: I was captivated by Zafón's lush writing. The book is fantastic (in both senses) and for a while I was wondering how long he'd be able to stay balanced on the knife's edge of plausible impossibility -- or is it implausible possibility? In any case, the answer is... well, read the book.
Really. Reserve it at Minuteman right now. Because I want to discuss it with everyone, and I can't until you've read it!
