When I utter that name I don't refer only to her, I address the whole book and I can't stop calling out to it again and again. The book that I speak of is called "Marina" written by Carlos Ruiz Zafón, a fantastic contemporary author. It's a gothic novel, a slightly horror story, as well as one about the loss of innocence.

The protagonist, Óscar, is 15 and through Marina he lives a story that will alter his soul, attaching many ghosts to his past, pretty much the same way that the novel will affect the reader. I don't want to reveal too much about it, but I will say that it is packed with action, bone chilling descriptions and plenty of cadavers. Hands will creep up on the back of your head, fetid smells will pinch your nose and turn your stomach and last but not least you will find your breath running along with the main characters in their terrifying adventures. While reading it my mind actually flew off to the game "Deus Ex: Human Revolutions" several times. All of this set in a Barcelona that you will want to encounter after the novel ends, but you'll be forced to accept the sad truth that you will never find it, because it has been lost somewhere in the second half on the 20th century.

"At six, I taught myself magic; at fourteen, juggling; at sixteen, wire-walking.  In the process, I was thrown out of five different schools.  Regardless, I would never have let my schooling get in the way of my education."
