The Angel’s Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

Set in post World War I Barcelona The Angel’s Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon is a novel steeped in magic, ambition, and romantic obsession. Young novelist David Martin is visited by a mysterious stranger who commissions a book for which “people will live and die.” In return, he will receive untold wealth and more. A secret library of lost books, betrayal by friend and lover, and the political turmoil of 1920’s Spain come together in a story reminiscent of the great social and moral epics of Stendhal, Flaubert, and others. I hated to have it end!
