    Posed with astonishing understanding and compassion, these questions power a novel rich with characters and events, both comic and harrowing, revelatory about not only New York after the attacks but also the toll taken on those lucky enough to have survived them. Wise, surprising, and, ultimately, heart-stoppingly redemptive, The Good Life captures lives that allow us to see, through personal, social, and moral complexity, more clearly into the heart of things.

    Scott says: "The Bridges of Why Am I Reading This Crap"
    "Well writen, but ultimately pathetic"
    Overall

    A book about a bunch a self obsessed rich New Yorkers who keep lameting that "The Good Life" has come to an end right around the time 9/11 happened. I mean come on, can you really say that the stock market crash of the eighties was just as bad as 9/11??

    Isabella d'Este, daughter of the Duke of Ferrara, born into privilege and the political and artistic turbulence of Renaissance Italy, is a stunning black-eyed blonde and a precocious lover and collector of art. Worldly and ambitious, she has never envied her less attractive sister, the spirited but naive Beatrice, until, by a quirk of fate, Beatrice is betrothed to the future Duke of Milan.

    Michael Allen says: "Good, but not Captivating"
    "Historical fun"
    Overall

    A wonderful and moving portriat of 2 sisters who married into two of Italy's most powerful families in the 15th century, and through gazing at them one also gets a likeness of "The Maestro", Leornardo himself.
