One of my booky friends over on The Dark Side recommended Carlos Ruiz Zafón's masterpiece, "The Shadow of the Wind"? Another book to be savoured slowly because, although one would like to stay up all night to read it, knowing that there are still a few pages left at the end for the next day is the best part.

An Umberto Eco-ish intrigue set in Barcelona, a story within a story and, luckily, it appears to be part of a trilogy. 

Too many wonderful quotes to count, but this one, I thought, might draw in my friend, +Robin Cohen :

“Julian spoke with the clear, unequivocal lucidity of madmen who have escaped the hypocrisy of having to abide by a reality that makes no sense.”

Galapagos sea lions frolicking but what's that? A silkie far from home?

"I am a man upon the land,
I am a silkie in the sea,
And when I'm far frae every strand,
My home it is in Sule Skerry."
