Carlos Ruiz Zafón: Marina (angol)

In ​May 1980, 15-year-old Oscar Drei suddenly vanishes from his boarding school in the old quarter of Barcelona. For seven days and nights no one knows his whereabouts. It all began the previous autumn when, while exploring the dilapidated grounds of what seemed to be an abandoned house filled with portraits, he inadvertently stole a gold pocket watch. Thus begins Oscar's friendship with Marina and her father Herman Blau, a portrait painter. Marina takes Oscar to the gardens of the nearby cemetery to watch a macabre ritual that occurs on the fourth Sunday of each month. At 10 a.m., a coach drives up to the cemetery and a woman with her face shrouded, wearing gloves, and holding a single rose is helped down from the coach and walks over to a nameless gravestone, where she sets down the flower, pauses for a moment, and then returns to the coach.

Carlos Ruiz Zafón: Marina (angol)

Ha röviden akarom értékelni akkor olyan zafónos. Ha hosszan, akkor ez az egyik legszebb, leggyönyörűbb történet amit valaha olvastam.
Aki olvasta az Elfeledett könyvek sorozatot, annak sok újat nem fog adni ez a könyv.Megtalálható benne az összes gótikus elem: állandóan szemerkélő eső, elhagyott szűk utcák, temető, sírkő, egy cica, akit Kaffkának hívnak, barátsággal, titkokkal, szerelemmel átszőve, elvarázsolva.
A legszebb pedig az benne, hogy nincs túl írva. Pontosan annyi, amennyit egy életében először szerelmes 15 éves fiú elbír egy kalandokkal, titkokkal átszőtt mesében.

JF had the soul of an avant-garde poet and such a sharp wit he often cut his own tongue on it.


'My father.'
'And you are?' I asked.
'His daughter.'
'I meant, what's your name?'

‘You might be interested to know you’ve been mentioned in the Dictionary of the Royal Academy,’ I announced.
JF glanced at the note and threw me a scathing look.
