insightful, unusual, stimulating
doesn't get bogged down
no - but perfect for falling asleep
Really enjoyable bedtime listen - lulls me to sleep in an informative way.
Great set up
Yes. Unexpected twists.
The ideal presenter.
I love thrillers but this, like most of them, has a terrible time pulling it all together at the end. Entirely too contrived.
This is a truely great book but does not function as an audio book - too many characters and too much description. It's really difficult to keep tabs on all of the elements.
Fair reportage of the fire at La Fenice opera house but lacking descriptive richness and fascinating characters. I would only recommend the book to those with specific interest in disasters and reconstruction. It's not for the general reader.
The fire in a historic structure in tightly packed Venice is confined to the building itself despite difficult conditions was interesting. The political and financial intrigue was not at all compelling.
The narrator was quite competent but the book was without dramatic content so he had little to work with.
