Review of "About Face - Donna Leon"
I just love writing and getting any feed back so I can improve. Its been good for me to write as I am recovering from a stroke and had times it has been difficult to write now much easier. Thankyou for all the rates and comments
I really find Donna Leon a very good crime writer and thoroughly enjoy reading her books as the series she writes is of an IItalian Detective Brunetti he lives in Venice.Italy.This book starts of by having his parents in law inviting he and his wife for a dinner party.He was sat next to Franca Marinello who was a wife of a wealthy Venetian businessman. She enjoyed reading and had a great enjoyment in the reading of Virgil and Cicero which was a passion of his as well.
It was just her apperance which was shocking to see.
Carabiniera Maggior Flippo Guarino who was from the city Marghera. visited Brunetti This became a much wider Mafia crime which needed to be investigated.The plot is average but what I like is the way tht the author manages to draw you in and that you really find it difficult to put the book down until you acually find out who did the crime and perhaps why. Shows how the different characters blend into one another to form a picture. I like the ease in which Donna Leon has in even the everyday things which happen become real with the descriptions of family life in Italy.
I love the setting of Venice one of my favourite places
