"The shadow of the wind" (Carlos Ruiz Zafón)
One dawn in 1945 a boy is led by his father to a mysterious hidden place in the heart of the old city: The Cemetery of Forgotten Books. There, Daniel Sempere finds a cursed book that will change the course of his life and drag him into a labyrinth of in wheat and secrets buried in the dark soul of the city. The Shadow of the Wind is a literary mystery set in Barcelona in the first half of the XNUMXth century, from the last splendors of Modernism to the darkness of the postwar period. La Sombra del Viento mixes storytelling techniques, a historical novel and a comedy of customs, but it is, above all, a historical tragedy of love whose echo is projected through time. With great narrative force, the author weaves plots and enigmas like Russian dolls in an unforgettable story about the secrets of the heart and the enchantment of books, maintaining the intrigue until the last page.
I read this book when I was about 21 years old and I have to say I loved it. So I agree with this recommendation from Emma Watson.
"Under the same star"
Hazel and Gus would like to have more ordinary lives. Some would say that they were not born with a star, that their world is unfair. Hazel and Gus are only teenagers, but if the cancer they both suffer has taught them anything, it is that there is no time for regrets, because, like it or not, there is only today and now. And for him lo, with the intention of making Hazel's greatest wish come true - to meet her favorite writer - they will cross the Atlantic together to live an adventure against the clock, as cathartic as it is heartbreaking. Destination: Amsterdam, the place where the enigmatic and moody writer resides, the only person who may be able to help them sort the pieces of the enormous puzzle of which they are a part ... Brimming with insight and hope, Under the Same Star is the novel that has catapulted John Green to success. A story that explores how exquisite, unexpected and tragic the adventure of knowing yourself alive and loving someone can be.
This book already has its own film and both, both book and film, have been very well received by the reading public and cinephile.
