I am a daily commuter. I drive to work Monday - Thursday from the Central Valley to the Silicon Valley in Northern California. My round trip is about 120 miles and I am in the car from 3 - 5 hours per day, depending on the traffic. That is a lot of time to listen to books.

    Barcelona, 1945: Just after the war, a great world city lies in shadow, nursing its wounds, and a boy named Daniel awakes on his 11th birthday to find that he can no longer remember his mother's face. To console his only child, Daniel's widowed father, an antiquarian book dealer, initiates him into the secret of the Cemetery of Forgotten Books, a library tended by Barcelona's guild of rare-book dealers as a repository for books forgotten by the world, waiting for someone who will care about them again.

    Overall

    I got this book because it was long & 50% off at audible. I am a D.Koontz, S.Grafton, J.Evanovich & J.Patterson fan - so this was a stretch for me and I expected to be disappointed. Especially, since the plot description seemed dull but I took a risk. ***I was taken immediately into this story. The characters are full & rich, the story line interesting. I could not stop listening! It spans many years, in which a mystery unfolds bit by bit. The writing is poetic. I fell in love with most of the characters, except the Inspector Javert-like cop who is totally hateful. I give this 5 stars and will read everything by Carlos Ruiz Zafron. Take a risk - you won't be disappointed - no matter what your preferences are.
