Larissa and I saw Carlos Ruiz Zafon speak at Politics and Prose in DC. I could have listened to him talk all day - he has such a wonderful voice and tells the most amazing stories.
He was there promoting his new book "The Angels Game". I read his last book "Shadow of the Wind" and loved it. It's definitely one of those books that took over my life while I was reading it. I completely gave myself over to the world he created. I hope that this new book does the same.
One of the most intriguing things he said about his writing was that he also composes music to go with his characters and plot. You can actually download these pieces to listen to while you read. I am looking forward to doing this myself while I read his new book.
I can't wait to read my newly signed copy.
