    It tells the story of Daniel Sempere, son of the owner of a used books store. Daniel discovers the Cemetery of Forgotten Books thanks to his father who takes him on a rite of passage. ... Daniel is completely besotted with one book he finds there..., so much so that he begins to research the mysterious author, Julián Carax's life

    A wonderful novel, especially for anyone who has a love of books - the Cemetery of Forgotten Books, the place central to the plot, is definitely a place I dream of and would love to have been real.
