“I like the subject matter in this novel because I have worked in the fraud field before so I understand it a lot and you can learn a few things from this book. However, I think there was too much talking about the subject matter and not enough actual murders, which is why we all read these books to ” read more

“My first Jeffery Deaver novel and I was pleased overall. There were a couple good plot twists and even though I guessed the ending it was still done well. I like the criminal profiling info that Deaver puts in a few times in the book too. It helps you follow along more with the killers methods and m” read more

“Dopo averne letti un buon numero, faccio fatica ad avvicinarmi ai libri che trattano della sventurata spedizione italiana contro l’URSS perchè mi mette ansia ritrovarmi di fronte la presunzione e la criminale incoscienza di chi mandò a soffrire e morire migliaia e migliaia di innocenti. Non pote” read more

“Sebbene all’esatto estremo opposto per intonazione e coloritura ideologica, questo libro ha risvegliato nel sottoscritto molte delle sensazioni evocate della prima parte di ‘900’. Perché anch’io vivo in un paese rivierasco che un alto argine separa dal Po, barriera che consente al fiume un ” read more

“Se la grande borghesia è marcia, come la famiglia d’origine del protagonista maschile, la piccola è un nido di vipere che farebbero qualsiasi cosa per riuscuire a mettere le mani sulla ‘roba’. E’ questo un tema costante nei romanzi di Simenon in cui non compare Maigret (ma anche quando in ” read more

“Se molte furono le polemiche che accolsero questo libro alla sua uscita, ora, che sono passati sessant’anni, ci si può abbandonare al racconto e ai personaggi evitando di accapigliarsi sulla sovrastruttura ideologica. Che c’è, innegabile, perché tra i motori del volume ci sono la lotta dei mu” read more

“I found her life fascinating! I didn't know much about her before I read the book, so I kept my mind open with what I was about to find out about her. Her life was filled with so much drama and tragedy, but she always maintained her dignity throughout it, which is admirable. She was a child star, a” read more

“Angelo Pardi è un miracolato. A cavallo o a piedi, alla luce del sole o sfuggendo le insidie, attraversa cinque mesi e quasi cinquecento pagine di colera accusando al più un principio di mal di pancia (sconfitto con due bottiglie di borgogna): eppure non si tira indietro, anzi si danna a soccorrer” read more

“Non è semplice entrare in sintonia con questo decimo romanzo di Saramago, uscito nella seconda metà degli anni Novanta. Prima di tutto per l’approccio ‘creativo’ alla grammatica e alla sintassi: i dialoghi sono scritti senza altra separazione fra le battute che una virgola e contribuiscono a” read more

“I started this book within a day of finishing the prequel, Cinder. Both books were absolutely fantastic. They're fresh takes on old tales, and kind of do a similar thing as the TV show Once Upon A Time, in the way that the author interconnects multiple fairytales into one story.
