A Cup of Light
Marvelous descriptions of cups, bowls, and other porcelain objects. The care and grace taken in making a bowl begs the question of what is authentic and what is a copy.
Dark Water: Flood and Redemption in Florence--The City of Masterpieces
Great read for anyone who has spent more than a few days in Firenze and loves Florence.
The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag: A Flavia de Luce Mystery
The kind of light frothy book that is fun to read, and as soon as you are finished, you forget what it was about.
The Days of Abandonment
Extremely depressing Italian novel about a woman's decent into madness and recovery after her husband leaves her. Very compelling and well written.
The Miracle at Speedy Motors
Alexander McCall Smith
Fully up to the admirable standard of the series. As the New York Times Book Review says "...escape into a wold of simple, picturesque pleasures and upstanding virtues."
Muškarci koji mrze žene
What's with the last 100 pages or so? The book went from being an intriguing mystery to a wrap it, catch-all movie script.
The Man Who Made Vermeers: Unvarnishing the Legend of Master Forger Han van Meegeren
Fascinating account of a master forger, Nazi collaborator, and all around evil man. Yet, he captivated people with his charm and wit and was a folk hero for many years.
The Savage Garden
This had the potential to be a good gothic mystery. It's set in Italy, lots of art work and literature references. Unfortunately, while it was mildly entertaining, it was not very well written.
Look Homeward, Angel
It was a major struggle to get through the incredibly dense writing, but worth it.
Chasing Shakespeares: A Novel
Literary mystery about the authorship of Shakespeare's works. Favorite line which was oft repeated: "God is a librarian."
