Before I started this book, I was afraid it would take itself too seriously. After all, novels about the social workings of small Tuscan towns have become pretty cliched by this point. But I liked the beginning, and was intrigued by the fact that it's about "bad luck." It delivered. There were a lot of good psychological portraits, the author never got too caught up in his own skills. I liked the fact that there were some ambiguities about the characters that were never cleared up, but enough resolutions that the ending wasn't completely disappointing (after all, life is like that). I don't want to give away too much on the off chance that you someday read it, but suffice to say that it's about a town getting hit by a spate of bad luck. Mother/son drifters come through, with the mother convinced that her son was produced by immaculate conception and is some sort of modern messiah. Oh, the manipulation, the faith... All in all, it's pretty good.
Completely confusing the first time I read it, but as soon as I read the last line, I wanted to read it again. I've recommended this to most of my friends, since it's a quick read but very...meaty. Love it.
The beginning of a wonderful trilogy. Very interesting are the historical facts, but most of all it´s a wonderful story of a strong and powerful woman - and Napoleon of course who was a very fascinating character.
3.5 stars. I'm rounding up. Was fascinated by the portrait of this hardscrabble frontierswoman. Wow! Not sure how much was left out or how much is fictional but the distillation Walls has given us of her Grandmother's life is truly riveting and inspirational. A practical, fearless, and endlessly resourceful woman you have to admire.
An inside look at a deteriorating marriage. I'm not spoiling it because the book jacket even reveals that this is about Hemingway's first wife. Really well written, but not a subject matter I really wanted to experience that closely. I actually looked at the cover of the book a couple of times to see if it was an autobiography. It's not, but the author really did a good job depicting what may have been real. Hemingway was a selfish ass, but I guess the author and history are in agreement with that.
