The Labyrinth of Spirits by Carlos Ruiz Zafón

...the fourth and final book in the Cemetery of Forgotten Books series.

Looks like a very fine series, I'm off to fine the first volume.  Thanks!

Anthony, you will love the labyrinthine story. Zafon is my favorite writer of the new times. I have every book of him.

I'm partway through a horror anthology called Lost Signals that has an overarching theme about mysterious radio transmissions. Several of the authors have given me Laird Barron vibes.

These rainy days I am reading novels from The Human Comedy by Honoré de Balzac (one of my alltime favorite writers).

I read a lot of wakas (japanese poems) over the last days and loved them. You can find poems in original japanese language and with an english translation on the Waka Poetry site: http://www.wakapoetry.net/

Also continuing with Howard P. Lovecraft and his dark cosmic tales e.g. The Unnamable, The Strange High House in the Mist, The Madness Out of Time - The Case of Charles Dexter Ward.

And I bought Contact by Carl Sagan. The story is well known from the film with Jodie Foster.

I now start reading a new book: "Das Buch der Unruhe" (The Book of Disquiet) by Fernando Pessoa. From the first reading yesterday I will love it.
It plays in Lisbon like another favorite book of mine "Nachtzug nach Lissabon" (Night Train to Lisbon) by Pascal Mercier.

Night Train to Lisbon  --  Not read the book, but the movie was excellent.

I've taken the night train from Paris to Lisbon.
That was one long train ride.

Anthony:  I can recommend the book, it has a very poetic depth and a very own imagination from the words.
Lisbon is a mystic, old and in parts very abandoned city. I guess you loved the city when your arrived there.

Yes, Lisbon is a wonderful city. Both charming and intriguing. The people too.

Any Brandon Sanderson fans in here? I'm currently reading the second book of the Mistborn series. I love it! It's a pretty chunky book too, which is awesome.

They are a great series - enjoy them all.
