I finished The Shadow of the Wind and was unsatisfied and rather disappointed. I had high hopes for this book because it sounded really interesting, set in a lovely place during a changing, dynamic time period but I was kind of bored. Too many secondary characters, too many random flashbacks, too many meandering separate story lines. I was bored almost from the beginning and then had trouble connecting with the rest of the book. So it was a bit my fault for shutting down a little early but just not one of my favorites. Now I'm reading The Godfather by Mr. Mario Puzo. Exciting, ballsy, old school and so easy to read! Makes me want to watch the movies again. Thanks, Kristen, I needed one like this to cleanse my palate.
