What other readers are saying about this title:
It seems that author Carlos Ruiz Zafón can't get enough of ghost stories about books. His newest novel, The Angel's Game, has the same Gothic touches of myth and mystery that his previous bestseller, The Shadow of the Wind, made so intriguing and irresistible. The Angel's Game is about a desperate young writer named David Martín. David writes a series of trashy thrillers that please the public but not his own artistic soul. He has a very few friends—a fatherly bookseller who offers encouragement and support, a wealthy writer whose pity is preferable to his charity—but David spends most of his time alone with his typewriter. Now, having survived a tragic childhood and spent most of his young adulthood lovesick for a beautiful woman he can never have, David finds himself caught in a strange bargain to write a book for an even stranger publisher. This mystery only lead to more clues that have something sinister in common with the very same gloomy mansion that David lives and writes in. The Angel’s Game seems designed to immerse us in the both the character’s and the author’s twisted methods of storytelling; savvy readers will spot characters and places that flow from Zafón’s earlier book The Shadow of the Wind into this book, thought it is not a sequel or a prequel. Atmospheric and beautifully chilling, The Angel's Game will keep you locked in its spooky clutches until the very last page.

This novel started okay, then took a steep decline. It’s full of gore, sadness and dispair for successful charactors. A true tragedy. 1 of 10 stars

I enjoyed the Angel’s Game, but in a different way than I enjoyed The Shadow of the Wind. The Angel’s Game is darker, has more twists and turns and leaves many unanswered questions. The ambiguity makes you think of many possible interpretations of what was real or dreamed or....? I recommend it.
