Not much of anything. While at first it was kind of hard to see where the story was going, it came together nicely.
The finish. I had a very good feeling at the end.
The return to Italy.
No follow up. It was wrapped up in a very good manner.
A story of the ruthlessness of some people in hollywood in 1960's. A journey in the characters lives and how life makes many turns through that journey.
A lovely story spanning the ages and continents. Swept me into their world. Would recommend highly.
I thoroughly enjoyed Edoardo Ballerini's performance. He musical voice nailed all the characters and I couldn't wait to get back to the story. I will listen to him again.
This is a great book and listening to it was a real treat. I would recommend the book but particularly the audio. It is so enjoyable.
My favorite scenes where in 1962 in Italy. It was great to have the events around the filming of Cleopatra.
I've enjoyed many audiobooks, but this one was sheer vacation.
Wonderful mastery of accents, cadence, tenor of the voices. A virtuoso performance!
This is a very entertaining book whose story covers many time periods and topics. This all fits together perfectly for the listener's pure enjoyment. I like to listen to a variety of types of books and this one is great for such a fun and inventive fictional journey. Have fun.
I don't know what I expected when I purchased this book based on the reviews but it was great. I immediately turned to my wife and said you need to read this book.
Busy woman, 50s, listen whilst driving along, love the stimulation of thinking of the characters and being read to.
Charming, humorous, achingly poignant
Good story crafting, great characters, interesting moral questions
Pasquale- he had a simple but sophisticated approach to living
Such a beautiful read that was so true to,the story. Also really recognized the hu,our in the story!
I enjoyed all the characters and how we got to know them at key times in their lives. The wry humor was deftly delivered throughout the book. I took a chance on this book based on the solid reviews. It is the best "new" book I've heard in 2012. The narrator of the book did an excellent job, I could not have imagined it as well as he acted it - bravo.
The narrator was excellent!!! The story was good but really took a whilst to get into, the last third of the book was just beautiful.
No I haven't
The scene where the characters meet again after 60 years.
