    Story
    "A weird choice of reading material."

    A weird assemblage of three stories presented as an "Easy Italian Reading". Good easy reading books usually contain interesting and entertaining reading material. This one is made of the three pieces written by Alfonso Borello which undergone some grammar and vocabulary simplification.

    The first story is quite boring, with a big chunk of it being a philosophical discussion between Socrates and his colleagues about the nature and interaction of love and beauty.

    The second piece is moderately interesting; it is an article about healthy versus unhealthy food habits which ultimately argues that osteoporosis is caused by consuming too much meat and thus reducing the quantity of calcium in blood.

    The third story is devoted to the tragic fate of Tanzania's albinos with many a graphic description of monstrosities perpetrated by witchcraft customers hunting for albino's bodyparts. It's a moving and shocking story, but is it a suitable material for an Easy Italian reader? Well, it's up to you to decide. On the whole, it looks as if the author pulled these three stories from his portfolio at random and decided to re-market them for the audience looking for an easy reading material.
