As part of my Eats, Shoots & Reads challenge I plan to read books recommended to me by friends. To kick off my reading extravaganza my first book has been kindly selected by Nick Frampton, all subsequent books will be selected based on this first book.
My first book of the challenge is:
The Shadow of the Wind – Carlos Ruiz Zafón
Phoenix (Orion books), 506 pages.
“The Shadow of the Wind” was first published in 2001 in the original Spanish under the title “La sombra del viento”. The book has since been translated into more than forty languages and published in over fifty countries. Worldwide it has sold over 12 million copies.
