Publisher's Summary

For over a hundred years, the Angelini Shoe Company in Greenwich Village has relied on the leather produced by Vechiarelli & Son in Tuscany. This ancient business partnership provides the twist of fate for Valentine Roncalli to fall in love with Gianluca Vechiarelli, a tanner with a complex past...and a secret.

But after the wedding celebrations are over, Valentine wakes up to the hard reality of juggling the demands of a new business and the needs of her new family. Confronted with painful choices, Valentine remembers the wise words that inspired her in the early days of her beloved Angelini Shoe Company: "A person who can build a pair of shoes can do just about anything." Now, the proud, passionate Valentine is going to fight for everything she wants and savor all she deserves - the bitter and the sweet of life itself.

Romantic and poignant, told with humor and warmth, and bursting with a cast of endearing characters, The Supreme Macaroni Company is an unforgettable narrative about family, work, romance, and the unexpected turns of life and fate.

Dissapointing

I could not tell if it was the Narrator or the Storyline-both fell short. I ordinary love both this Narrator and this Author but this book was flat. A predictable and disappointing story.

Don't bother

There is no depth to the plot line and the atrocious accents used by the reader were absurd and insulting to Italians and New Yorkers. This book was a complete waste and very disappointing.

Where is Valentine?

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I love this character, but the storyline goes south quickly by the remaining 1/4 of the book. Valentine seems selfish throughout and I wished the reader could have seen a different outcome for her. Unfortunately, the ending was horribly sad and made me sad to see the character and storyline of her arch so drastically.

What do you think your next listen will be?

The Hundred-Foot Journey

Did Cassandra Campbell do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes. Good all around.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Supreme Macaroni Company?

None.

Any additional comments?

No.

Adriana Trigiani doesn't disappoint!

Following the story of Valentina feels like revisiting an old friend that I haven't seen in a long time. She weaves the characters into the story line so that if you haven't read her previous books you still understand the relationships of the characters. You fall in love with all of them in their own ways and live their struggles and happiness along with them. When something happens to one of the characters you feel their emotions along with them. The narrator is excellent. After listening for awhile you know which character is speaking just by her voice. Great selection. Did not want it to end. I hope there will be another Valentina story!

Loved it

Sorry that this is the final book in the Valentine series. Trigiani's story wraps things up (to a point) and left me hoping that someday another book would join the series. I'm going to miss these characters!
Cassandra Campbell's narration is wonderful - glad I decided to listen. Just a heads up: have some tissues nearby.

Disappointing

This book fell flat for me. Perhaps that is due to a strained storyline or lack of effort by the author. Too much time spent recalling past events. Erratic character development. I would skip this one.

Main Character Has Turned Completely Self Centered

I have really liked this whole series until now. When it got to this book; however​I began to hate the main character. I began to question how any person could be so self centered and so linear in thinking. I can't even get to the end of the book and that says slot since I can't stand not to finish things.

Great Listen!

I am sorry to see this Trilogy end. I feel like I know these people and could walk into the feast of the 7 fishes and no one would mind. Will Val ever marry Brett??

Hmmm

I enjoyed the book however the various accents were a bit much. And often confusing as to which character they belonged to.

As a dedicated reader of every one of Adriana Trigiani's books, this audible was so well done!
