Reviews - What do customers think about Las Luces De Septiembre?
Las luces de septiembre May 9, 2008
Although this novel by Carlos Ruiz Zafon was intended for a younger audience, the simple intrigue and characters can also interest older readers. The language is vivid and, although there is not much actual character development, the "personajes" are clear and fitting for the plot.
Vale la pena! Dec 25, 2006
I found this novel enthralling enough to struggle with the Spanish. The author is a prize winning 42 year-old from Barcelona. The story opens in Paris in the 1930s. M. Sauvelle suddenly dies leaving his wife Mme Sauvelle and their two children Irene, a young teen, and Dorian, a pre-teen, with a mountain of debt. A mysterious stranger, Lazarus Jann becomes their salvation when he offers Mme Sauvelle a job running his estate on the southern coast of England. Jann is allegedly a widowed toy manufacturer. His "toys" are frightening mechanical contraptions that seem to take on a life of their own and his mansion is rife with intrigue. Irene falls in love with Ismael an orphaned teenage fisherman who lives with his relatives who also work for Jann.
Ruiz has spun his plot borrowing some elements from Carl Gustave Jung's shadow, which I'm pretty sure Jung borrowed from the Kabbalah, and the yetzer hara (the evil inclination), as well as Faust. This novel is geared towards a teenage audience. The illustrations are great.
