I listen to this book while walking--I always make my 3 mile goal. The narrator is superb, the story telling exquisite, the characters have become people I know better than my actual neighbors. What an achievement to have written this narrative.
It is for me--I have so little time to actually sit down and read, and the storytellers in this book are excellent
I can't think of one right now.
The reality of the character portrayed
Ordinary people creating an unreal world for themselves.
Kept me guessing until the end.

The way he used is moral standards as bedrock to establish the U.S. as a republic
The exhiliration of coming to know the mind of Thomas Jefferson

Yes for the description of life in1917-20, especially the mountains of Italy, Enza's courageous management of her own life. But it does get long in describing emotions.
I haven't, but I will. I love Italian.
I liked the Italian phrases and experiences. The narrator of the first part was a little flat, the second too New York Bronx.
It would be lovely to learn more about Italians in America especially non mafia ones
This seems auto biographical, almost a memoir,.
An elegant use of metaphor to present the Turkish people, their history and their lives as not contrasted to the West.
I listen to this book as I walk, and I'm now up to 3 miles a day because I don't want to stop listening. I need another book this engrossing--would love suggestions.
