1. Carlos Ruiz Zafon’s The Shadow of the Wind

Set in post-war Barcelona, The Shadow of the Wind traces Daniel Sempere’s coming of age as he uncovers the cursed tales of his old city, beginning with the Cemetery of Forgotten Books and the discovery of a particular book called…The Shadow of the Wind.

What happens when you mess with things that are best left alone? Pick up Zafon’s masterpiece and you’ll find yourself reading to the very end in one sitting. Simultaneously a mind game, a celebration of literary power, and a telenovela in print, The Shadow of the Wind proves that you don’t have to go outside to have a little bit of an adventure.
