The Angel's Game

I am currently reading Carlos Ruiz Zafon's somewhat disturbing, but elegantly written novel The Angel's Game. I'm only about one-third of the way through it, but I am enjoying it and recommend it. So far, I find the plot somewhat predictable and think that if Zafon is trying to spring a surprise on me in terms of the secret identity of certain characters, he's not doing that great a job. But I also wonder if maybe he's only thinly trying to conceal secret identities so as to divert the reader from a real and unexpected surprise later. We'll see how it progresses; but I am enjoying the book, as disturbed as I am by it.
