review El prisionero del cielo

review El prisionero del cielo El prisionero del cielo Read ↠ 108 Read Ð eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Í Carlos Ruiz Zafón Ezapig burgerlijk bestaan verstoord door de komst van een vreemde manke m The Prisoner of Heaven is the third in Carlos Ruiz Zafon s series that began with The Shadow of the Wind and continued with The Angel s Game The main character in this chapter of Ruiz Zafon s multi volume tale is Fermin Romero de Torres friend to the Sempere family the owners of a struggling bookshop in 1957 Barcelona While other characters get their time on stage this is Fermin s tale And a compelling story it is from the time he adopted his name through his less than friendly encounters with Spanish fascists in 1939 including a stint in a top of the hill prison that would have been at home in the mind of Kafka or Bram Stoker to the present 1957 when a ghost from his time in prison comes calling I confess that I found myself at loose ends a fair bit As this is a continuation of the previous stories or at the very least is linked to them I found myself ironically constantly straining to remember who this or that was and what happened to them or what it was that they had done And even though I had read both prior books and kept notes on them one of a thousand hard drive crashes had annihilated much of the information and also my note taking was not uite so OCD as it is these days so even the retained notes were of less than outstanding value Maybe the best approach to Ruiz Zafon is to make a pile of all the books in the series and read them in a row the better to keep things straight Ruiz Zafon is trying to reconstruct the big novels of the 19th century On his website he specifically mentions Tolstoy Dickens and Wilkie Collins in discussing his aims So there will be plenty of characters plenty of sub plots and when spread over three and eventually four books it can be a bit much to keep track of let alone recall from having read the prior volumes years before The primary literary inspiration here is The Count of Monte Cristo with both that novel and this one involving an undeserved imprisonment a clever escape fabulous treasure and adventure The mention is overt in the text and gives us a neon clue as to how a prison escape will be accomplished While this is a page turner to read it is than a mere action adventure treat There is content lurking in the shadows Keep in mind that one of the central images of the entire series is a literal place called the Cemetery of Forgotten Books It does not figure very largely in this episode but it underlies The need to remember however permeates And it is not just the desire to keep alive the memory of loved ones or even of literature but of the reality of Fascism lest the powers that be erase that memoryChristmas figures early in the story an image of hopefulness in a time almost worth forgettingIn those days Christmas still retained a certain aura of magic and mystery The powdery light of winter the hopeful expressions of people who lived among the shadows and silences lent that setting a slight air of promise in which at least children and those who had learned the art of forgetting could still believeMemory is erased as the corrupt surround themselves with their kind then intimidate speakers of truth into suppressing reality and promoting fiction Although this is not at all referenced here I could not help but think of the McCarthy era in America and today of those who claim a perfect knowledge of the American founders as a defense of their positions and any and all political spinmeistersI don t know where I ve read that deep down we ve never been who we think we once were and we only remember what never happenedLies find their way into common experienceI ve seen a few cases and the patients often hear voices or they see and remember people and events that have never taken placeThe mind slowly deteriorates and the patient can no longer distinguish between reality and fiction like seventy percent of Spaniards And a bow to the importance of historians research and writingcities have no memory and they need someone like me a sage with his feet on the ground to keep it aliveCemeteries of varying sorts pop up like mushrooms after a shower Fermin has a close encounter with a particularly grisly one there is the cemetery of forgotten books of course and other visits take place as well They seem to be locales where ironically truth is kept aliveFire flames into the text many times but I leave that for another reviewerAnd I take the title to refer nor only the Daniel Martin s dubious mental state but to the person of Spain itself which in a way had to keep its own consciousness in the clouds in order to survive the horrors of fascismWhile I may have concerns about one s ability to read this book solo this is not to say that this was not an entertaining read It was It is not to say that the characters are not interesting They are at least the ones which are developed And it is not to say that this book cannot be read as a stand alone It can although it would be like reading with one eye tied behind your back Yes I know I do wish though that ink had been applied to the female characters They seem to serve here as plot devices than as realized individuals So bottom line here is that The Prisoner of Heaven is an engaging and entertaining read offering the perceptive reader plenty of content beneath the surface story connections to literature from the past and an appreciation of the importance of keeping the truth alive in our memory I would suggest however having the first two volumes in the series close at hand or ideally if you have not read them already read all three at once for the best possible immersive reading experience Forgetting is a terrible thingPS You might enjoy checking out the author s siteI wish there were half stars I wanted to give this 35

review El prisionero del cielo El prisionero del cielo Read ↠ 108 Read Ð eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Í Carlos Ruiz Zafón Rond Kerstmis 1957 wordt voor een boekhandelaar het perspectief van een g This book is a perfect example of what is wrong with the publishing world Zafon s first book The Shadow of the Wind is one of my all time favorites Ever The second book The Angel s Game is well up there on my list so when I saw The Prisoner of Heaven on display I was ecstatic Unfortunately it is very clear that Zafon was under time pressure from the publisher on this book enough so that the story was irreversibly ruined You see Zafon is a master of prose character and theme Indeed I would just say that Carlos Ruiz Zafon is a master storyteller in general but he is also one that needs time to polish and work his product The only problem is that because of the HUGE success of his other two books the publisher who s biggest concern is for money and not story wanted a third book yesterday not tomorrow not next week out with it Some authors fight this or have a brilliant agent and publishing team behind them that believes in story rather than speed not so with Zafon Don t get me wrong this book is still well written and at times brilliant but in the end it is unfinished This book is short a mere 279 pages compared to a solid 587 pages for The Shadow of the Wind and 531 pages in The Angels Game What this tells me as a reader is that Zafon wasn t even close to done and it shows Where this book ends feels like the mid point of a longer book it isn t really a conclusion things aren t really tied together but it was close enough to cut it off and call it done I did enjoy The Prisoner of Heaven but the rushed style short story and at times sloppy writing tells me that this once great author has been screwed by his publisher Had this book had another year or even six months of work it would have been another shining example from one of the best writers of the 21st century Instead we are left with a deep sense of betrayal at an incomplete story put out merely to make as much money as possible Hopefully in the future Zafon is given the time necessary to produce books to his full potential and not merely for the uick cash We will see I suppose
