This is a good book. The main character is wonderful, and the story is a great description of Italy. You begin to understand the main character and understand his frustrations. The unabridged book is slow at times, but is still very good. I am sure the abridged book is wonderful, but I have not heard/read it - - yet.
This is a fabulous book. The descriptions of the surroundings, the relation to human struggles, and the out of the ordinary locations - this is a wonderful book. Yes, it is "uplifiting," but not in an overly religious way. There are so many ups and downs to this book; so many descriptions to human nature - good, bad, and ugly - we all know people like the ones encountered in this book, and hope that we never meet others! I love this book, and I will listen to it again!
