    By Its Cover PDF ð By ItsMOBI :ñ cover kindle, By Its download, By Its Cover PDFEPUBIf Italy is the capital of the slow food movement then Donna Leon fits right in with her Brunetti series which takes place in Venice Like her other books this one opens slowly as the reader puts one piece of the puzzle in after another There are so many delicious asides such as nearly a whole page devoted to Brunetti's gray suit Then there are the domestic scenes with his wife Paola and their two children The book takes place in the spring This was for me very appropriate As Brunetti feels the warmth of the sun after a cold wet winter I could completely understand since we also had an exceptionally cold wet and VERY long winter this year This series is not for those who are l

    By Its Cover PDF ð By ItsMOBI :ñ cover kindle, By Its download, By Its Cover PDFEPUBI do love Guido Brunetti but get increasingly tired of Leon’s inability to get background information conveyed by any means other than making him appear a simpleton with the need to ask his wife his relatives Signorina Elettra and victims for information about Venice that any Venetian over the age of 5 would know Apparently she has decided that dialogue beats exposition any day of the week even if it’s ridiculous to think Brunetti doesn’t already know these thingsOn the other hand this has the virtues of a crime committed in a library of the oldest and most valuable printed books Since I’m by chance reading a nonfiction book about the very earliest days of printing in Venice the authors' and publishers' names made a nice echo And who isn’t outraged at book vandalism

    By Its Cover PDF ð By ItsMOBI :ñ cover kindle, By Its download, By Its Cover PDFEPUBI love the Commissario Brunetti stories I look forward to a new book the way children look forward to Christmas morning My expectations for Donna Leon are high so that's perhaps why I was disappointed here The book feels flimsy in comparison to the others in the series The characters are flat the story less developed and the ending well I won't give it away but I was left dissatisfied There were few references to food and rather than drooling over her lush descriptions of Paola's cooking there was little to imagine There is only one meal described in detail and Guido wasn't even allowed to enjoy it because he was so engaged in this case I'd rather wait a little

    By Its Cover PDF ð By ItsMOBI :ñ cover kindle, By Its download, By Its Cover PDFEPUBReading a Guido Brunetti book by Dona Leon is like running into an old friend and realizing that the intervening time hasn't lessened your friendship This is very much a character driven story The crimes theft of rare books and a murder are secondary to Brunetti's professional family and social interactions I felt the story dragged a little in spots but never enough to make the book less enjoyable In this case some rare books and pages from others are stolen from a private library by what appears to be a professional thief Leon uses the plot as an opportunity to have her characters describe the tragedy of losing historically valuable publications in addition to the venality of many Italians some in government and law enforcement who facilitate these thefts As someone who was not a suspect but well known in the library is murdered Brunetti uncovers the full scope of the thefts As he works to solve both mysteries he runs into the usual bureaucratic barriers Italy is
