If books were edible, this would be your menu of choice. A menu that helps you deviate from the 2 burgers for £3 option and tuck straight in to the pompous "Tarte aux fraises" of books.

Carlos Ruiz Zafon - The shadow of the wind

Wow. This is quite possibly the best book I have ever read. The story in fact is quite a simple one, but Zafron brings it to life with amazing twists and characters that are more real than any I have ever read before. In fact i would go as far as saying Fermin Torres, with his mix of cheek, humour and anti-establishment sarcastic undertone, is my favourite fictional character ever.

To summarise, a great plot, a magical setting, and characters that not only compliment, but exemplify this magnificent story. I could have happily kept on reading for another 500 pages.
