This is my second Zafón book. The first one I read in English and I'm reading this one in French. I don't know Spanish enought to read his books in their original versions but the translation of La sombra del viento is absolutely beautiful. I did not have the same impression with the one I read in English (Marina) but it's not my mothertongue so I don't get it as much as I do with French. I wish I could read it in Spanish though.
I'm so glad I finally chose to read this book (I got it for my birthday 3 years ago..), I think I'm going to enjoy it a lot.
