Angelo Vassallo
After reading "Maria, ihm schmeckt's nicht", I was so excited to continue the history of Antonio Marcipane that I went immediately to the Library in order to pick up this book. It is quite different in comparison to the first one, overall in the first part where Jan Weiler seems to prefer a storyline which brings to think rather than to relax yourself. In this first part he shows the problem of integration that Antonio and his family had to face in Germany. Luckily, some funny episodes make this ...more

A very enjoyable sequel to Maria, ihm schmeckt's nicht!. More adventures of the narrator and his Italian family-in-law, again focused on the patriarch Antonio. This time, the narrator, Antonio and his wonderful friend Benno travel to America - Antonio's wonderland. The adventures are fun, sometimes bordering hilarious, and the best part, which really had me in stitches, was meeting Robert de Niro and the consequences of said encounter. Fantastic. I also loved the part of the Italians visiting th ...more

Der erste Band hat mir insgesamt viel besser gefallen. Ein wenig nervig fand ich die Wiederholungen am Anfang, aber das mag auch daran liegen, dass ich "Maria, ihm schmeckt's nicht" direkt davor gelesen hatte :/
Der Klappentext ist ziemlich missverständlich. Ich dachte demnach, es geht schon recht am Anfang nach Amerika, aber dem war nicht so. Die erste Hälfte dreht sich hauptsächlich um einen Familienitalienurlaub und Saras Problemen mit Antonio, die ihn mir dann doch etwas unsympathisch gemacht

This book was simply hilarious! Like in Jan Weiler's first book, "Maria, ihm schmeckt's nicht", he writes about his life with his Italian wife and her family, how life is with them, especially with his father-in-law, who kind of lives in his own little world.

Besides annual trips to Italy where we meet the whole family Marcipane, the father-in-law, Antonio, now wants to make his biggest dream come true - a trip to New York! And of course, he needs company!

Even though Antonio seems a bit crazy, yo

couldn't stop laughing; people on the train probably thought I'm weird :P

I liked the first part better but I still enjoyed the adventures of the lovable Antonio Marcipane a lot. I'm not so keen of audiobooks but Jan Weiler is one of the few authors that are really able to read their own works appropriately and I wouldn't have enjoyed Antonio's Italian accent as much if I'd read the book myself.

Having Robert de Niro's German dubbing actor read those parts was a very nice bonus and somehow this book made me quite curious to visit New York myself, although I could very

Den Vorgänger hab ich sehr genossen, dieses hier war auch recht gut aber leider beschäftigt sich grade mal knapp die Hälfte des Buches mit der Reise ins "Wunderland", und diese ist dann auch noch ein bißchen zu unwirklich-chaotisch (die Suite von Robert De Niro??).
Andrea
Very whitty. Makes you look at the American culture through the eyes of a European.
Extremely eloquently written, well spoken author. Lesson of this book: yes, live a little. Sometimes ignorance can be bliss and fun at the same time.
Ritja
Zweimal angefangen und dann doch aufgegeben. Nach 60 Seiten noch immer das Warten auf die Spannung in der Geschichte, das Lachen oder wenigstens Schmunzeln und die Pointe schien noch so weit weg, dass iich leider die Lust verlor.

I read this book without knowing it was a sequel. It did not really matter though.

The book is really funny and though Antonio is exasperating at times, I could not help but find him endearing.
Alena
Sequel that unfortunately couldn't live up to the first book. Details that I liked in the first one seemed ludicrous and silly here.

warmherzig und doch nachdenklich machend.Ein Einwanderer Schicksal. viel wortwitz.als audiobuch besonders zu empfehlen
Kirsten Hott
Very enjoyable read, made me laugh heartily a few times. :)
I enjoy his style of writing which makes for an easy read.
Roxy
Hat schon etwas Wortwitz, aber da Italiener nicht meine Lieblinge sind, war es für mich eher so lala.
Anica
Even better than the first book. *giggle* I really have to re-read soon. It always lighten up my mood!
