    The Venetians' language and way of thinking set them aside from the rest of Italy. They are an island people, linked to the sea and to the tides rather than the land. This latest work from the incomparable Peter Ackroyd, like a magic gondola, transports its listeners to that sensual and surprising city. His account embraces facts and romance, conjuring up the atmosphere of the canals, bridges, and sunlit squares, the churches and the markets, the festivals and the flowers.

    "Highly recommended!"
    Overall

    This is a fantastic book telling of the unique history of Venice bridging the diverse cultures and ideas of the Eastern and Western worlds. Mr. Vance's reading is top notch, as usual. Poignant, profound and highly recommended.
