LITERATURE: The Shadow of the Wind – More Retelling

Now we have Daniel’s (the narrator’s) new friend, Fermin (a middle aged politically charged character who was hunted down by the regime until he ended up a beggar on the streets) listening to the story of the book, the author Julian, and the rundown of Daniel’s search into the mystery.

While the cast of characters is ever-growing, and the threads of time and setting seem to be a spiderweb rather than a barbed wire fence motif, the tendency to rehash is a bit overdone and while I might call it amateurish, I must keep in mind that this is indeed Zafon’s initial novel.
