Marina by Carlos Ruiz Zafón summary ¾ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ädchen Sie heißt Marina und sie wird sein Leben für immer verändernGemeinsam werden die beiden in das düstere Geheimnis um den ehemals reichsten Mann Barcelonas gesogen Schmerz und Trauer Wut und Größenwahn reißen sie mit sich eine höllische Verbindung von vernichtender Kraft Aber auch Marina umgibt ein Geheimnis Als Ósca. Review originally published at Learn This Phrase Marina is the last of Carlos Ruiz Zaf n s existing books to be translated into English following the first three books of the Barcelona uartet for adult readers and the Niebla trilogy for teenagers Published in Spanish in 1999 two years before the worldwide bestseller The Shadow of the Wind it is the final young adult novel written by the author and its transitional nature is evident in the style It reads as a lot grown up than the Niebla books but the protagonist is a teenage boy and in many ways this feels like a young adult fantasy story albeit one written with the deliberate intent to appeal to a wider audienceSet primarily in between 1979 and 1980 although it feels as though it could be a lot earlier Marina is written from the point of view of Oscar Drai a fifteen year old boarding school pupil in Barcelona Lonely and bored Oscar wanders into the garden of what he assumes to be an abandoned house and meets the beautiful ethereal Marina a girl of his age who is home schooled and her artist father Germ n Oscar is uickly drawn into a friendship with this eccentric fascinating family as well as having a burgeoning crush on Marina but the real intrigue begins when Marina takes him to a nearby graveyard where the pair watch a veiled woman place a single rose on an unmarked grave Pursuing the mystery of this act leads the two friends into an unimaginably complex and macabre adventure in Barcelona s underworldThis is a classic Ruiz Zaf n book in that it has so much going for it so much to be fascinated by yet never uite makes good on that promise and however much you might want it to be just isn t as good as it should be with all the brilliant ingredients that have been thrown into it More than any of his others this particular book seems to highlight very clearly what is both good and bad about the author s writingThe good Such rich descriptive prose often verging on over the top flowery language but incredibly enjoyable to lose yourself in and lacking the awkwardness of much translated fiction A constant gothic undercurrent of madness darkness and twisted imagination Atmospheric and incredibly evocative portrayal of Barcelona A magical timeless uality which makes the story feel like it could be taking place in any time periodThe bad Poorly drawn underdeveloped female characters who are all unrealistically flawless fragile and virginal Confused action scenes that become incomprehensible in places The overall plot becomes so complicated and bogged down in different subplots and characters stories that it s easy to lose track of what is actually supposed to be happeningI did enjoy Marina but as usual not as much as I wished I could With its rich ominous mixture of characters places dreadful misdeeds and weird stuff it makes for a largely compelling read that doesn t feel compelling as a whole I felt deflated when I reached the end and cared little about any of the characters It feels a bit churlish to complain about characters being two dimensional in a novel that would be suited to a reader half my age but so much attention seems to have been paid to the descriptive details of the settings that the people it s all supposed to revolve around have been neglected It s telling that the book is named for Marina yet having read it I have nothing whatsoever to say about that character I wasn t sure about the fantasy element either again this would probably be far enjoyable and frightening to the hypothetical younger reader and one thing that happened near the end was so ridiculously clich d and terrible that I nearly lost my patience completelyI was drawn to Marina by the same things that have made me read almost all of Ruiz Zaf n s books and I was disappointed by the exact same things that have disappointed me in the author s other work a feeling that the whole thing is about style than substance and terrible female characters It s bound to be a hit with die hard fans of the author since it offers so many similarities with the rest of his books admittedly it s interesting to see many of the themes of his adult fiction emerging here and it would probably make a good starting point for those unfamiliar with The Shadow of the Wind et al I m not wholly convinced that Marina lives up to the tagline on the cover which declares it to be a gothic tale for all ages but it s a fun read if a frustratingly imperfect one

Pure magic once again My Original review hereI ll add to this with just my thoughts on the narrator here he did a wonderful job narrating the story and bringing everyone to life Each voice was distinctive and fit the character beautifully I was never once jarred out of the story one mark of a good narratorYou have to have a certain passion and understanding of the material when you narrate an audiobook otherwise it feels forced and flat and Daniel Weyman has both Would definitely recommend in both physical copy and audiobookNarrator 5 starsStory 45 stars
