An interesting short-story, as I was expecting. Mysterious and engaging. The short-story talks about the origins of the Cemetery of Forgotten Books and it features Miguel de Cervantes y Saavedra as the male protagonist. A good read although very short.
Nice and very cool short story set in Spain of the Middle Ages.
Quickie review for a quickie story. This was an ok story but not anywhere near the level I expected from CRZ. This was like a rough draft of a story rather than the story itself. I wanted more from this - more substance specifically. Not bad but not as good as I wanted it to be.
