I can't believe I actually paid hard-earned money for this pitiful book.
From the made-for-TV silly plot, to the one-dimensional characters, to the snotty narration, I just gave up halfway through. I really don't need to gawk at expensive Italian furnishings and clothing like some American junior year abroad wannabe.
Why didn't the woeful narrator Ms. Lovejoy even consult with an Italian speaker before she punted her way through the horrible accent she affects? Hey, "Giovanni" is not pronounced "gee-oh-vanni," but "joe-vanni." And so it goes...on and on.
I give up. This is by far my worst purchase ever from audible...and there have been a few other stinkers along the way.
It's hard to tick off a history buff, but this one brought back recurring nightmares from that Ancient History course. Egyptians, Minoans and Hittites were the easy ones…
This should never have been an audio book--especially with the terrible narrator and his golly-gee intonations. I plowed on courageously through half the book, then just chucked it.
A waste of time and money for me.
