The Labyrinth of the Spirits
By Carlos Ruiz Zafon
This is one BIG book -not just physically but also a BIG book full of layers and sub-plots – a real thriller. It is the fourth in the Cemetery of Forgotten Books series with Daniel Sempere now a man with a young son running the family bookshop in Barcelona. It sees the introduction of a character called Alicia Gris who is a secret police agent in the Fascist era. She leads Daniel to the edge of the abyss and helps reveal the secret history of his family. For those of us who visit Spain on holiday it is easy to forget the recent and painful Spanish history under General Franco but this book certainly reminds you.The story is exciting, violent at times, and enthralling. Do not be put off by the size – it is worth building up those arm muscles!
