A garden of statues.

It will keep you turning the pages, and probably leaving your lights on, late into the night. It almost felt like he had woken or disturbed something. I also liked that you got out of breath when you rode your bike up the hill.

Il principe della nebbia

Max scopre un giardino disseminato di statue orribili, la sorella Alicia inizia a fare sogni inquietanti, compare una scatola piena di vecchi film che sembrano aprire una finestra sul passato, mentre l’orologio della stazione va all’indietro.

Prince of Mist ending felt a little bit too unfinished. OK Max, you had the right idea in this book.

Because this book lays out the information in a very “telling” instead of “showing” way, it might help kids who would otherwise get lost in an intricate plot. Having now read it, I have to admit that while it was a good enough story, it was also quite predictable, and it didn’t scare me at all.

Because that is me. I KNOW you can’t expect a young adult book to explain everything exhaustively, but when I think of the detail and care so obviously put into the better examples of children’s literature I can call to mind, that isn’t really an excuse for the plot to be SO pdincipe. Beautiful writing, seriously 3.

The stage is set for a chilling tale about a ghost ship, a powerful villain, mysterious ruizz and so on – technically, this should make a fantastic spooky story. To ask other readers questions about Il principe della nebbiaplease sign up.


In my opinion, you can sense that this is Zafon’s first written novel. View all 3 comments.

Finally, there’s also the fact that the adult characters are constantly referred to by their full names – don’t ask me why, but this is one of my biggest pet hates when reading. This is his debut novel and the writing shows that ,but it is still a good read for middle grade and it is not a surprise that it was initially nnebbia as a YA novel. Um… so no one thought to ring the police or tell any grown-ups what just happened? carlis

It was originally intended for teenagers, but this edition is clearly being marketed towards the author’s adult fans; it has the same cover design as his adult titles, and a preface explains that it is designed to be enjoyed by readers of any age.

Max and his sister Alicia soon meet a new friend named Roland, whose parents died in a tragic accident when he was small. Lists with This Book. Una storia che affonda le radici nel passato e che continua a lasciare una scia di sangue, dolore e sofferenza.

However, the book soon begins to get quite silly and more and more plot holes and unanswered questions pop up, until it all becomes totally unbelievable and rather boring. The Carver family decides to leave their urban home in Spain to escape the war. Insieme i tre ragazzi scoprono la terrificante storia del Principe della Nebbia, un’ombra luciferina che emerge nel cuore della notte per scomparire con le prime nebbie dell’alba Clocks that seem to move backward, that feeling of someone breathing on your face, voices only children can hear, and circus statues that change shape and positions.

They move to a small beach town which has more than its prnicipe of secrets. I liked that you loved films and that you were a great little brother and that you were a bit disgruntled with being third wheel.

Still, it did entertain me, and it is after all a very short read, so definitely pick it up if you are a fan of Zafon or if you just happen to be interested in this ghost story.


I remember reading the author’s note and afterwards being very impressed with this a first novel. The story starts out in a light note, though war was mentioned several time, the main character, Max, is a young teenager whose point of view is both innocent and posi OMG! If ‘Jacob’ was old enough to be filming with a video camera alone prior to his change of identity, how on earth can he not remember anything before his parents’ death?

And it can boast some fantastic honorary fellows such as Richard Attenborough, Rhys Ifans, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Philip Pullman been in the same room as him twice and yes, fangirled myself out and… and Carol Vorderman. I didn’t go into this with nsbbia expectations, and I expected it to be kind of immature, but I still found it very disappointing.

Quote of the day. Things that should have been explained, but never are–like how the statue garden came into existence.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. It was like a cease-fire during which you could stop whatever you were doing and just stand by a window for hours, watching the performance, an endless curtain of tears falling from heaven. You can read this review and lots of other exciting things on my blog here.

The only thing he actually did discover truly on his own was something I had figured out very early on and, btw, created another big plot hole. There is a shipwreck just off the coast, and a strange old man who runs the town lighthouse.

Still, there are a lot of elements I think will appeal to kids: Also x2 I love The Kinks.
