Yes, In fact I am doing so now
I felt I was part of the story just did not want it to end!
Pasquale - very endearing

I really loved this book. Edoardo Ballerini is now one of my favorite narrators. He really brought these characters to life for me. I've always been a fan of novels that span several decades, and this is no exception. Beautiful Ruins is a fairly predictable story but beautifully written and worth the listen.
I loved this book! I lost sleep reading this story. I loved Edoardo Ballerini narration.
Wow. What a beautiful book. Great performance. Great ending that made me cry. I don't know that I've ever actually cried when a book ended. What a gift.
Since taking my first creative writing class in 2008 the pleasure I used to get from reading has been greatly reduced. I notice things I never noticed before. That said, I think I rate books pretty generously. Anyone who actually manages to write a whole book and then get it published deserves an extra star.
Accessible, but not too obvious, story-line, sympathetic characters - even the ones who are completely self-involved - interesting settings, a satisfying end. What more could you want?
This book has several stories inside the original story and is well-written. The narrator does a great job with accents and I found I liked the book more than I thought when starting it!
His command of the accents
Yes. The depictions of the untraveled Italian coast were great.
It tied-up thing s well. It was what I expected.
It was great.
Classic love story
The feeling behind each character, the Italian pronunciation made it authentic
Would have been nice
I traded off reading the book and listening. The narrator is fantastic which saved me from this rather snoozer of a story. It's a beach read which is okay but at the same time my expectations where higher as everyone raved about this book. New plot lines half way through, lots of characters who I didn't really care much about. The last chapter was a race to just wrap it up and send the book on it's Appian Way. It's a quick read, it has that going for it.
I bought this as soon as I saw the way it was being promoted, but was very disappointed. I found that I didn't care about any of the characters and in fact I could hardly finish it. Partly I think it was a book about celebrities, and unless you're one who reads the celeb news and show business, I don't think you will be much interested in this book. I wouldn't have finished it except it was so promoted by Audible that I kept expecting more. Next time, I'll be less impressed by Audible reviews!!
