    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.

    I enjoyed this Spanish soap opera meets murder mystery. The most spectacular part was the performance of the narrator, Jonathan Davis. Davis really made this a memorable book for me and I look forward to the next time I get to listen to his lovely voice and passionate performance.

    Overall I enjoyed this series but I wanted to echo what some other readers have already said: I didn't think the narrator was right for the job. The voice (Katniss) wasn't too bad but the performance seemed very off, there was strange emphasis on words that didn't allow for sentences flow and I didn't enjoy any of the other character voices. I definitely won't be purchasing anything else read by Carolyn McCormick.
