La sombra del viento

I am about 47 pages away from finishing, The Shadow in the Wind by Spanish writer Carlos Ruiz Zafón and I love it. Do you like old books? If the answer is yes, I think you will love this book. Do you like the idea that books have souls? Or books about youth, love, wonder, Barcelona, rare book shops, forgotten books, burning books, clues and treasure hunting? If so, you will really love this book.
