When 15-year-old Oscar Drai suddenly vanishes from his boarding school in Barcelona, no one knows his whereabouts for seven days and seven nights.
His story begins when he meets the strange Marina while he's exploring an old quarter of the city. She leads Oscar to a cemetery, where they watch a macabre ritual that occurs on the last Sunday of each month. At exactly 10 o'clock in the morning, a woman shrouded in a black velvet cloak descends from her carriage to place a single rose on an unmarked grave.
When Oscar and Marina decide to follow her, they begin a journey that transports them to a forgotten postwar Barcelona - a world of aristocrats and actresses, inventors and tycoons - and reveals a dark secret that lies waiting in the mysterious labyrinth beneath the city streets.
Carlos Ruiz Zafon's haunting Marina has long been a cult classic in Spain and is now an international best seller.

This impressed me as a mash-up of Frankenstein and the Phantom of the Opera, set in Barcelona. Dark, gothic setting, lots of stormy nights and spectral sightings. A little over-the-top for my taste, although I loved the narration.

Absolutely loved it! The only thing that slightly bothered me was that the audio version does not follow the written version 100%. There are a few words here and there that are different but not a very big deal and doesn't detract from the story. I would definitely recommend!
