      The book we are talking about i.e The Shadow of the Wind is a very good or we can say the best book of the mystery genre. Not only a thriller book but this one is a very good history book as well. If you are interested in the history then this book is going to be one of your favorites without any doubt. The Shadow of the Wind Book Summary: "Gabriel García Márquez meets Umberto Eco meets Jorge Luis Borges for a sprawling magic show." --The New York Times Book Review A New York Times Bestseller Barcelona, A city slowly heals in the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War, and Daniel, an antiquarian book dealer’s son who mourns the loss of his mother, finds solace in a mysterious book.

    The One Who Eats Monsters (Wind and Shadow Book 1) This book by Casey Matthews is absolutely brilliant. Although it claims to be the first in the series, its now been years since it was written. However, it is fine as a stand alone book. The main issue is /5(98). THE SHADOW OF THE WIND JULIÁN CARAX I had never heard of the title or the author, but I didn’t care. The decision had been taken. I pulled the volume down with great care and leafed through the pages, letting them flutter. Once liberated from its prison on the shelf, the book shed a cloud of golden dust.

    Exploring shadows with body movements is a great way to get kids active and excited about learning, it’s a full body experience! You can play fun shadow games by calling out different shapes, letters, or numbers and inviting the kids to do their best to create them in shadow. Or, call out movements like standing on one foot, reaching up high.   Enthralled, Daniel “chooses” an obscure novel, The Shadow of the Wind, a complex quest tale whose author, Julian Carax, reputedly fled Spain at the outbreak of its Civil War, and later died in Paris. Carax and his book obsess Daniel for a decade, as he grows to manhood, falls in and out of fascination, if not love with three beguiling women.
