I left this on my Currently Reading shelf for over a year, which gives you a clue that this was not the most gripping book I've ever read. I finally picked it up again and finished it, mainly for sentimental reasons - years ago I spent a fair amount of time quite near this region, and David Yeadon did capture lots of things about its particular flavor (and flavors - as in all of Italy, the food is one of the highlights, and he describes this mouthwateringly.) I felt he was a fairly long-winded but ultimately appreciated his perspective on this less affluent, off the tourist track part of beautiful Italy.
