Where does The Angel's Game rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It is one of my favorite books I've ever read
What other book might you compare The Angel's Game to and why?
The other of that kind might be a "Master and Margarita" by Bulgakov.
What about Dan Stevens’s performance did you like?
One of the best narrations
Forget about Shadow of the Wind, which was outstanding book. Angel's game is indeed trash, especially the ending.

The author spoke recently on BBC radio about there being 4 interlocking stories planned in the Shadow of the Wind series. Here is the second and it continues the mood of the first: of a rambling and brooding Barcelona peopled by Peakesque characters who are at once both ugly and beautiful, repellent yet beguiling.
The line between reality and the supernatural blurs a little more in this second book that charts a writer's history a couple of decades before the Shadow of the Wind. We meet up with old friends and encounter new heroes and villains.
It is just as powerful as Shadow, if not quite as wonderful, and let's us see further, both into the depths of Zafon's imagined old Barcelona and the duality and complexity of the human spirit. Evil and love swirl in a dance of chance or purposed misfortune and opportunity ? one is never sure.
If you loved Shadow, you must listen t this too. If you haven?t read Shadow, then read that first before coming here but then come straight here.

Beautiful, beautiful! You do need to have read "The Shadow of the Wind" before reading this, but both books are wonderful and well worth the time.
The author has a superb way of writing, and although I preferred the reader who did "Shadow" I thought this reader was quite good. He captured the atmosphere of the piece very well.
I did feel that the ending was a little confusing because I did lose track slightly, but that might have been my fault. I hope that the real identity of "The Boss" will be explored further in the other books in the series.
The sheer quality of the writing made this spellbinding and I will be listening to it again soon.
