The Midnight Palace (Niebla, #2) by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
Jun 22, Jeanette “Astute Crabbist” rated it it was ok Shelves: My disappointment in this book can be described in three words: I was very disappointed in this book. I liked Prince of Mist, but this book was not nearly as good and I didn’t think Prince of Mist was great. For one thing, Grandma ruuz not want anyone telling Sheere that ep father was a bad man. But Grandma was the one who, for her whole life, has been telling Sheere that her father is a good man.
But she knew his spirit was hunting his children to kill one of them. So why did she build him up in Sheere’s mind in the first place? How can Ben and Sheere have a mystical connection because they were twins separated at birth? Why did Dad kidnap Ben’s friends and tie them up? Why didn’t he just kill them all and then kill Ben? Whatever happened to their father’s home? Why did he build it so weird? How can they believe one minute that the bad guy knows they are there, because the miniature palaxio starts going around the tracks and has three miniature figures of them inside, and then the next minute feel they are safe enough to go to sleep in separate rooms?
And why is it the girl always has to be the one sacrifice herself? The story was not that interesting. It was difficult to follow. Explanations were given in character speech, going on for pages. Couldn’t the author find a way to show, not tell? I was actually kind of angry by the end because I really wanted to like the book and find it creepy, like Prince of Mist.
I don’t understand why VOYA had it as a starred review. The cover art is great, though. Zaafon Description In the heart of Calcutta lurks a dark mystery Years later, on the eve of Ben and Sheere’s sixteenth birthday, the mysterious threat reenters their lives. With meianoche help of their brave friends, the twins will have to take a stand against the terror that watches them in the shadows of the night–and face the most frightening creature in the history of the City of Palaces.
Didn’t really like this one. I’m not really sure why. Maybe it’s because I didn’t like Ben,or maybe it’s because I wasn’t particularly interested in the story.
El palacio de la medianoche
I liked all the other characters,tho. I have to admit that I’ve skimmed through the last 40 pages-I just don’t understand why Jawahal had to make everything so freaking complicated.
Like,stop being so dramatic,dude. The ending,on the other hand,I actually really liked.
: El Palacio de la Medianoche (): Carlos Ruiz Zafon: Books
It was a good conclusion to their journey. Caroos so in love with all of Carlos’ books. All of them are perfect, and beautiful. Highly recomended No recuerdo porque empece a leer a CRZ, pero no se que seria de mi sin sus libros. Este libro asi como todos los de el, esta lleno de suspenso y un rulz de misterio paranormal, el cual jamas esta completamente descrito pero carlox es necesario para entender la historia.

Nov 10, Jo rated it liked it Shelves: Fantastic ideas that are described in breathtakingly beautiful prose but never explained properly.
Because there were tons of things I liked about this book. Seriously, his prose is just absolutely stunning. I also think that, aforementioned problems aside, Mr RZ medkanoche knows how to tell a thrilling story.
And then there are his characters. Even though I did get a bit annoyed by the fact that the adults are conveniently absent throughout this whole story, I loved that the children are the paacio of the book. With such a colourful cast, it was easy to imagine yourself in that dilapidated house and I liked how his children actually act mediahoche children, too. I know I seem to have written a lot without actually saying anything, so I apologise.
I enjoyed this book a lot more than I did The Prince of Mist because there seemed to be a lot more depth to the story and the setting was absolutely gorgeous. Give it a try just for his prose, if anything! You can read this review and lots of other exciting things on my blog here. View all 12 comments. And it’s true, I wasn’t.
But then I came mediwnoche a copy in the library, and couldn’t resist giving this a try, knowing it wouldn’t take me long palafio read. I’m quite glad I did, as The Midnight Palace is ka better than its predecessor. Like The Prince of Mistthis book was originally intended for the teen market, but the English translation is clearly being aimed more towards the author’s adult fans – again, it comes with a foreword extolling its appeal to readers of all ages.
The story starts with Ian, now entering old age, recalling his youth in a children’s home in Calcutta – specifically the adventures he enjoyed with a tight-knit group of fellow orphans who called themselves the Chowbar Society. Flashback towhen the seven friends are on the cusp of turning sixteen and leaving the orphanage to make their own ways in the world. An elderly woman arrives at the orphanage with a girl of their age, the intriguing Sheere, and so begins a fantastical rollercoaster ride of an adventure.
It’s odd ls this is supposed to be the second of a trilogy, as other than some elements of fantasy and a seemingly indestructible ‘bad guy’, it has very little in common with The Prince of Mist.
One of the things that annoyed me the most about that book was that it was so vague, completely failing to establish any sense of time or place, and providing very little explanation of the villain’s origins. Here, the setting and era of the story are clear from the beginning, and the evil Jawahal is given a backstory that’s perhaps too detailed, raising rather a lot of questions. Naturally, since this is YA fiction, it does all get a bit silly – much palacii the climactic action is really daft, but I didn’t exactly expect shining literary brilliance, so that was fine.
But I did genuinely like the ending, which seemed oddly melancholy and downbeat for a teen book. A decent little read for fans of the author – atmospheric, exciting and easy to get through in one sitting. Maybe I’ll read his next YA translation due May ! The only reason that I am giving this book a star is because I happen to be a Zafon’s fan. But seriously now, Calcutta ? I hated the Chowbar society members, all of them and I was more sympethtic to Jawahel -villain- al Zafon my man this thing sounded like a movie from Bollywood!
I mean a necklace that is split in two, twins, names written backwards. I was waiting for the time when zafoon all sang and the book went musical! I understand that it is meant for teenagers and The only reason that I am giving this book a star is because I happen to be a Zafon’s fan. I understand that it is meant for teenagers and that you wrote it back in the s. But some things are better left in the past, there is no reason to bring it back again when you have written the angels game, and shadow of the wind!
In a word, I became old. Mar 30, Kells Next Read rated sl liked it Shelves: The world, Ben, belongs either to lunatics or hypocrites. There are no other races on this earth.
