Ho letto delle novelle di Verga cioè non ho letto tutte le novelle sebbene questo sia il titolo del libro proprio. Mi sono piaciute quelle che erano più lunghe ("Nedda" e "Rosso Malpelo") poiché le spiegazioni del trama non erano così sottintese. Mi piace l'ironia di Verga e la fine di "Rosso Malpelo" che mi è sembrata tanto mitologica era bellissima.
