My take on the book
Do I recommend Definitely
Reasons being >A trip to the mysterious world of 1902, in Barcelona, certainly arouses anxiety in the reader.>A different plot is created by entwining books with usual emotions like love, hate, betrayal, death.

>It doesn’t get boring, not even on a single page!

>It keeps your brain ticking.

>A story line which throws in clues at you, at regular intervals, but the reader is made to struggle to reach to the end of the maze!

On the other hand >Few questions remain unanswered at the end.

>The detective in the reader keeps ticking to find those particular answers, which the author has left open to imagine!

>In a way it’s good to have open arena to imagine your own thing, but then, you want to know whether you’re thinking in the right direction! This being a mystery plot,one needs some concrete answers and especially if one is finding them on his own,there is this urge to know right or wrong, so there! 

I totally agree with what Titaxy has to say about this book !
