Marina cover





Marina is a novel that belongs to young adult fiction by the Spanish writer Carlos Ruiz Zafón. It was published in 1999 by the publishing house Edebé and reprinted in February 2017 bringing the total to approximately thirteen editions. Perhaps, Marina is the most indefinable and impossible novel to be categorised among the books by Carlos Ruiz Zafón. And, according to the writer's words, probably it is the most personal of his works.Marina is a supernatural mystery history that takes place in Barcelona. The protagonists find many trails, discover mystery places, abandoned mansions and gardens, get anonymous papers, conduct interviews. And finally, they come to confessions of the minor characters that became favourites tools of Carlos Ruiz Zafón to "unclog" the plot. The novel looks into self-investigation, just Bildungsroman, in the bloom of love and its difficult managing, and to melancholy caused by faithfulness. The Guardian called Zafón's narrative style "simply beautiful".
