"The Shadow of the Wind" by Carlos Ruiz Zafon is the only book on Rory’s list so far that has been a thriller. Stephen King gave it a rave review on the back cover. Usually I am impressed by celebrity authors, because they are celebrities, but I don’t like to be scared. However, this book just had a very fast, very interesting pace, but it wasn’t scary. "The Shadow of the Wind" is about one boy who tries to protect all of the books of a little known author from falling into the hands of a faceless man who is trying to burn all of the Carax’s books. For some reason, it reminded me of the "Da Vinci Code", even though it was nothing like the "Da Vinci Code". It would definitely make a great movie. It doesn’t get five toaster pastries because I never fully understood the main character’s motivation in going to such great lengths to find out about this book. However, four toaster pastries is nothing to shake a stick at.
