The Shadow of the Wind is a captivating story of love and loss. Mystery has not been my genre of choice since high school. The twists and turns throughout this book, however, kept me from putting it down. I read the whole book in one rainy weekend. It was the perfect book for a binge-read! Even if a mystery isn’t usually your go-to read, I’d recommend you give this book a try. I know I’ll be adding Zafon’s other books, The Angel’s Game and The Prisoner of Heaven, to my reading list.
