    Carlos is one of those authors that makes me starry-eyed if that makes sense. I can tell you why I like most authors. I can provide a clear description of their strengths and weaknesses. But Carlos is like one of those celebrities that take your breath away when you see them because you’re too star-struck to say a word.

    I blame his prose. I don’t know if ‘The Shadow of the Wind’ is as entertaining as I thought it was, or I was simply mesmerized by the writing. Carlos is an artist, and the blank page is his canvas. I don’t care for flowery prose, but this author is the exception. Every sentence is awe-inspiring.
