The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón

“It is one of those books that I had to stop reading because I was surprised by it, I physically had to put the book aside and just think and let it sink in. I also gasped loudly on an aeroplane while I was reading this, I almost woke up the man that was sleeping next to me, because I needed to talk about this with someone. I think about this book and I smile inevitably because I knew I was going to like it but I did not know I was going to belong to it in such an intimate way.”
