The Midwife of Venice

    "Wanted More Complexity from the Story and Narratio"

    The narrator read the story like she was talking to a two year old which made the story seem even simpler than it was. The story lacked complexity and depth. I just couldn't wait for it to be over. I loved The Birthhouse and The Red Tent and this book was a real let down. :(
