No. I was ready to love the sequel to life in Italy but found Bella Tuscany to flatline.I was disapponited in the lack of depth on the towns charaters and lack of detail about daily life.The author skimmed over the local characters and went into too much detail describing murals, and other works of art. Unless the reader were in the specific chapel, church or museum viewing the same work of art while reading the book,the comments were lost. An avid traveler to Italy who spends months there at a time......I was BORED with this book and the lack of "back story" about the people and ritual of daily Italian village life! I was especially disappointed in the narration! The author showed no passion while she read. I found her monotone voice annoying; she did not draw me in as I had hoped she would; She sounded "disinterested" during the entire reading.......turning this reader/listener off!
No! No! and NO again!
No! There were no "human interest" stories behind the main storyline which was boring!
After having listened to "Don't Lets Go To The Dogs Tonight", I was delighted to see the story continue with "Under The Tree of Forgetfullness". This second book was excellent; as it was able to take you deeper into the incidents and personalities of the Fuller Family! The true life story about the authors life while growing up in Africa was engaging, witty, and very informational. The narration by Bianca Amato was top notch! Bianca is a brilliant narrator whose voice and song captivate you while drawing you into the story. Under The Tree of Forgetfullness was a 5 Star experience for me all the way around!
