I LOVE anything audio - books, podcasts, lectures. I listen mostly when moving -driving, dog walking, or before bed to clear the mind.

    In an abandoned mansion at the heart of Barcelona, a young man, David Martin, makes his living by writing sensationalist novels under a pseudonym. The survivor of a troubled childhood, he has taken refuge in the world of books and spends his nights spinning baroque tales about the city's underworld. But perhaps his dark imaginings are not as strange as they seem, for in a locked room deep within the house lie photographs and letters hinting at the mysterious death of the previous owner.

    "Meandering, atmosphereic, ok story"
    Overall

    This just wasn't in the same league as his first novel, The Shadow of the Wind - so that was very disappointing.

    The story meanders and doesn't really seem to hang together. I got lost sometimes. However, use of language is interesting.

    Narration is good. Definitely a book that I wanted to finish - and glad I did.
