She's read about its author before, the outlandish Victorian scientist Thomas Lumas, and this is his most notorious, and rarest, book. It is also believed to hold a curse. Anyone who's ever read it, including Lumas, has disappeared without trace. With Mr Y under her arm, Ariel is thrust into an adventure of faith, physics, love, death, and everything in between.
A book about a book. Coincidentally, I just finished The Shadow of the Wind
by Carlos Ruiz Zafón a few weeks ago, which was about uncovering the secrets and fate of the author of the book The Shadow of the Wind. Which I enjoyed reading a lot.
