Reviewer: Fabiola Santiago, (Miami Herald)

"THE ANGEL'S GAME...[is] a wickedly clever tale that turns readers into accomplices of [Zafon's] obsession with books, the quixotic characters who pen and peddle them and mystical Barcelona.....[T]he city makes the writer, and Zafón once more creates a tale -- a Harry Potter for grown-ups, a mammoth parable, an operatic morality play -- worthy of Barcelona."

Reviewer: Carol Memmott, (USA Today)

"THE ANGEL'S GAME...is as much a literary marvel as its predecessor, [THE SHADOW OF THE WIND]. Like SHADOW, Zafon's latest novel is a masterfully written love affair with books and words as well as an obsessive tribute to passionate love....[Zafon's] visionary storytelling prowess is a genre unto itself."

Reviewer: Terrence Rafferty, (New York Times Book Review)

"Ruiz Zafon provides, along with sex and death,...a pervasive sense of the childish joy of credulity--of surrendering to a story and letting it take you where it will, whatever the consequences....THE ANGEL'S GAME has emotional truth to burn because [he] uses every narrative technique in the book, high and...low....[H]e always falls back on storytelling. It's the master he serves, and the devil he knows."

Reviewer: Allison Williams, (Time Out (New York))

"[T]his is good summer page-turning thanks to the vibrant secondary cast....[Protagonist David] Martin becomes embroiled in a murder mystery of sorts, but his skewed perspective and untrustworthy narration elevate it above a simple whodunit."

Reviewer: Terrence Rafferty, (New York Times Book Review)
