My Shelf Candy for this Saturday is:
The Prisoner of Heaven by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Synopsis can be found here.
Isn't it gorgeous?
This is book three in his Cemetery of Lost Books series. Book one is one of my personal favorites: Shadow of the Wind.
Notice the framed scene, the old street lamp, the tall blurred buildings where the light is shining so bright it blinds the outlines. Notice the man running out of that scene, looking behind him, as if he was running from something. Notice the beautiful blue color, the old fashioned metal like framing on the outside of the book. The bold yet sweeping font of the author's name and the band of red ribbon with the title.
If you've ever read one of his books, you know then that this is a wonderful interpretation of his stories and writing. Romantic, thrilling, sweeping and mysterious.
I cannot wait to get my hands on it.
In fact, I might already have.
