Wishful Wednesday is back! Hectic banget sebulan terakhir ini, jadi mau update blog pun setengah-setengah, sampai terpaksa libur dulu Wishful Wednesday nya minggu lalu =)

Kemarin ini aku baru menyelesaikan buku super keren, Shadow of The Wind (Carlos Ruiz Zafon), bercerita tentang misteri buku yang membawa kita ke kisah cinta bersetting gothic di Barcelona. Ternyata, buku ini memiliki beberapa sekuel, ada yang berhubungan langsung dengan kisah pertama, ada juga yang merupakan “sempalan” dengan setting yang sama.

Jadi, berhubung minggu lalu libur, minggu ini aku memutuskan untuk membuat Wishful Wednesday sekaligus dua buku, dari penulis yang sama, Carlos Ruiz Zafon =)

The Angel’s Game, bercerita tentang David Martin, penulis fiksi yang menerima tawaran misterius dari seorang penerbit yang tak kalah misteriusnya: In this powerful, labyrinthian thriller, David Martín is a pulp fiction writer struggling to stay afloat. Holed up in a haunting abandoned mansion in the heart of Barcelona, he furiously taps out story after story, becoming increasingly desperate and frustrated. Thus, when he is approached by a mysterious publisher offering a book deal that seems almost too good to be real, David leaps at the chance. But as he begins the work, and after a visit to the Cemetery of Forgotten Books, he realizes that there is a connection between his book and the shadows that surround his dilapidated home and that the publisher may be hiding a few troubling secrets of his own. Once again, Ruiz Zafón takes us into a dark, gothic Barcelona and creates a breathtaking tale of intrigue, romance, and tragedy

 

 

 

 

Sedangkan The Prisoner of Heaven melanjutkan kisah Daniel Sempere, si tokoh utama di Shadow of The Wind, pasca petualangannya di buku pertama tadi: Barcelona, 1957. It is Christmas, and Daniel Sempere and his wife, Bea, have much to celebrate. They have a beautiful new baby son named Julian, and their close friend Fermin Romero de Torres is about to be wed. But their joy is eclipsed when a mysterious stranger visits the Sempere bookshop and threatens to divulge a terrible secret that has been buried for two decades in the city’s dark past. His appearance plunges Fermin and Daniel into a dangerous adventure that will take them back to the 1940s and the early days of Franco’s dictatorship. The terrifying events of that time launch them on a search for the truth that will put into peril everything they love and ultimately transform their lives.Full of intrigue and emotion, The Prisoner of Heaven is a majestic novel in which the threads of The Shadow of the Wind and The Angel’s Game converge under the spell of literature and bring us toward the enigma hidden at the heart of the Cemetery of Forgotten Books, a collection of lost treasures known only to its few initiates, and the very core of Carlos Ruiz Zafon’s enchanting fictional world.
