Fiction by Carlos Ruiz Zafon.
This book was okay, but I think it suffered in translation.
Also the author stole too much of the plot from classics like Les Miserables and The Count of Monte Cristo, some of which he acklowleged openly that he borrowed.
But there's a point where you're borrowing too much and it slides into stealing. Like when it's more than two key plot elements.
Anyways, maybe it was better in Spanish.
