    "Left me wanting more...in the best way!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Un Amico Italiano to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version, but plan of buying it. I enjoyed the audio version, as I do with all of the books I have heard.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Un Amico Italiano?

    I loved Luca's reaction the first time he traveled to New York City and attended his first New York Yankees baseball game. I too had the same reactions. I also love how borderline-obsessed he is with James Taylor.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It's a tie...between Luca's first New York Yankees baseball game and his meeting(s) with James Taylor.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Luca's meeting with Liz Gilbert. I adore Eat Pray Love and Liz's other novels, so I was excited to see Luca write about their meeting in his own novel. I love how stereotypical American's can be and how his meeting with Liz blew that out of the water.
