Really Well-written, and Really Enjoyable
September 1, 2014
There are obviously tons of memoirs about Italy because it's, well, it's Italy. From the first time I went, long ago, until now, I'm hooked on the country, and thus I've read many of those books about moving to Italy---and some are very good.
But this one is exceptional. Maybe partly because I had (and still have) no idea who Chris Harrison is, Maybe partly because he's young, and not a retired academic or Brit. I am just knocked out with the quality of his writing, the keenness of his insights, and his wit. (Plus, it's a good love story that a man can enjoy.)
If you like Italy, particularly the southern part, you'll really enjoy this book. I'd give it more stars if that were possible.
But truthfully I haven't quite even finished the book, and that's because my wife has commandeered my kindle for the night so SHE can read it. (She loves Italy as much as I do, and is even pickier about the quality of the writing she reads.) Next trip, I'll be sure she doesn't forget HER Kindle!
