Has anyone read "Shadow of the Wind"by Ruiz Zafon?

Ay, Dios, the most engaging novel I've read in a while. When a tale begins in the Cemetery of Forgotten Books, it's bound to capture the attention of those who love books.  So many stories woven together, love stories, political drama, mysteries, all set in post-WWII Barcelona.  I couldn't put it down, I was wide awake a 3 am, still reading.

Yes! now there's a novel with a most powerful opening paragraph-it is a classic. And a really engaging plot. I loved it.
