Sweet, Romantic, Mysterious
He was smooth and did all the accents and voices very well.
I like to flip flop between heavy and light in my reading material. This would be on the lighter side and included some real life figures mixed into the fiction. It takes place both in Italy and the US and takes us back and forth between the 60's and present day. The narrator was very good and the story at times takes you by surprise. I enjoyed it and found myself waiting for opportunities to get back to the book (Always a good thing for me!)
that people were put in the story that you have heard of
no one favorite
good voice for the storyline
Great story that was brought to life beautifully by Edoardo Ballerini - highly recommend. Original story; great character development; amazing intertwining of stories. Loved it.
This book is about the old movie world trying to make sense and survive in a reality tv, fast food, bite sized, attention deficit, popup add world. It's not the most original story in the world (a complex love story pushing in and out of movies) but my god is the language beautiful. The narration only multiplies this making this audio version a sort of work of art apart from the story. Highly worth checking out.
There are too many audio books to bother working my way through this. I will use Diane Yannick's review from Goodreads. She wrote is just as I felt...
"This book started with such promise. Pasquale was a great character and I would have enjoyed following his story. The Italian setting was lush and Dee Moray's story was interesting until it got crushed by all the random characters and story lines."
I did not bother finishing.
The novel seemed overdone--needed a good editor and some trimming. But the audio version was handled well and overall I enjoyed it.
I wish the story just would have been about the Italian's and the actress' lives, and left out the stupidity of the Hollywood types! This book was a waste of time and money!
yes the story was very interesting
The scenes in the bunker.
His voice and the changes he makes for the characters.
never make it - it is really long.
It's a good story, with Edoardo Ballerini's masterful storytelling. I would ran this audiobook among the better fiction books I've listened to lately.
I like audio books.
Yes, simply because the Italian in the book really brings a needed authenticity to the language when spoken.
The moments I identified with each and every character at some point.
His voices are superb and fit each character. I thoroughly enjoyed his voice for Pasquale in particular, as his Italian background gives the character a much needed softness, authenticity and realism.

Few books have affected me. This is one of them.
