Un gran enigma en Calcuta.
Calcuta, 1932: el corazón de las tinieblas. Un tren en llamas atraviesa la ciudad. Un espectro de fuego siembra el terror en las sombras de la noche. Pero eso no es más que el principio.

En la víspera de cumplir dieciséis años, Ben, Sheere y sus amigos de la Chowbar Society deberán enfrentarse al más terrible enigma de la historia de la ciudad de los palacios.

La gente que puebla sus calles sabe que la verdadera historia fue escrita en las páginas invisibles de sus espíritus, en sus maldiciones calladas y ocultas.

Yikes! I started listening to the audiobook and I couldn't grab onto what I was hearing. The unfamiliar names and locations were making it difficult for me to absorb the story. I got a copy of the physical book and started re-reading with google maps open and a pen and paper. Now I will continue with the audiobook in hopes that I can follow along better.

Audiobook has some nice ominous music at appropriate times.

I think if you are going to list street names-- For example "Chandra Chatterghee's house stood on a quiet street that led from Jatindra Mohan Avenue to Acharya Prafulla Road, about a kilometer and a half north of the Midnight Palace." then you should include a map.

I have a CD and half to go and I'm quitting. A couple big things happened in the beginning... babies were saved, their savior was murdered by a guy who took a bullet to the head and survived then the rest of the book was explaining. Stuff didn't really happen anymore. It was like book 3 of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. All talk of who did what and how. Then we get to the grandmother and she was lying. So all the explaining she gave, she had to undo and give us some other versions to follow. I listened for the rest of the car ride home. Came and looked on here to see if the other bad reviews were saying the same things and made it official. I'm done with this book and the author. (I wasn't a big fan of Shadow of the Wind)

I think the narrator did a great job (Jonathan Davis) and I liked the sound effects on the audiobook. DNF

Aardig verhaal dat zich afspeelt in Calcutta.

Een groep wezen weet dat ze op korte termijn uit het weeshuis weg moeten omdat ze de 16-jarige leeftijd hebben bereikt. Een van de jongens is Ben, 16 jaar geleden kwam hij in het weeshuis terecht. ( )

This book is my first Carlos Ruiz Zafon experience, and I loved it. I read it in two settings (and if weren't for work, I could've read it one). I absolutely loved the cast of characters. They were each unique, but came together to create a great friendship. I also loved how Ruiz Zafon established a clear line between good and evil, and then blurred that line with a plot twist. The action in the book kept me turning pages. It's not often that I book will bring me to tears, but I'm not going to lie...I cried. I can't wait to get started on the Cemetery of Lost Books series. I may have a new favorite author!!! ( )

This novel aimed at young adults takes places mostly in Calcutta in 1932 and deals with the confrontation between a group of 16-year-old orphans and a supernatural enemy. The main characters of this group are Ben and Sheere, twins separated at birth for reasons explained in the book. The other orphans belong to a group meeting regularly in the Midnight palace, an abandoned house.

Like so many others, I've loved Carlos Ruiz Zafon's adult books - Shadow of the Wind and Angel's Game would be in my all-time top ten. Prince of the Mist? Different target audience, but I liked it. But this one wasn't to my taste at all. As always, it's well written, well translated, atmospheric with strong characterisation - but the tale of magic, evil and mayhem with characters like the Secret Seven at its centre morphing into Deal or No Deal left me rather cold. I do think Disney would make a wonderful film out of it though. ( )

There's a lot to like about this novel. It's fast-moving and never hesitates, and it quickly sketches the eight young people who inhabit its pages as quirky and likeable individuals, from the taciturn artist, Michael, to the fiery and intelligent Isobel. It's also a story about stories: tales from the past are woven into the narrative in an elegant way, with the whole book framed by the narrative of the last surviving member of the group.

The book is not without its flaws, however, containing some simple contradictions that can be an irritation to the reader: to give an example, one moment we're told that Ben and Sheere are worried when they learn that Jawahal has penetrated their father's secret house, while a few pages later, they settle down to sleep in that house, safe in the knowledge that "if . . . Jawahal had been able to get in, he would have done so already".

Despite this, however, The Midnight Palace is an enjoyable novel, with a wonderfully sinister villain, plucky and resourceful heroes and some visually arresting imagery, most notably in the depiction of the Firebird, a deadly weapon whose fire engulfs a phantom train of murdered orphans.
