The Prince of Mist; Carlos Ruiz Zafon

The Prince of Mist The Prince of Mist by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This isn't true horror, it's horror lite: the Prince (aka Dr. Cain) doesn't seem to be "unimaginable" unless you've not read anything about the Faust myth. If you have, you'll be mildly annoyed at the portentous hints of What's Going On (for example, the films or the walled garden) that aren't fully developed. If one theme had been fully developed, this would have been a far creepier book.
