Yet another quick interruption from the 2 other books I'm reading - the old one and the long one. I was in desperate need of some thrill and mystery and The Prisoner served its purpose right. Two things about it. The bad one. I read the first two books of the trilogy about six and three years ago, so I couldn't remember much, except for some key facts and characters. But the good thing is that you can read it as an independent book, which is great for both my poor memory and those who haven't read the other two. And Zafon, being the smart guy he is, left the door open for another sequel. If I were to rank it, I think it's better than [b:The Angel's Game|4912857|The Angel's Game (The Cemetery of Forgotten Books, #2)|Carlos Ruiz Zafón|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1320470394s/4912857.jpg|3252824] (the shorter, the better) but not as good as [b:The Shadow of the Wind|1232|The Shadow of the Wind (The Cemetery of Forgotten Books #1)|Carlos Ruiz Zafón|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1344545047s/1232.jpg|3209783].
