really liked it
Read from March 15 to 22, 2010

This was a difficult book to assign a rating to. It contains two shorter novels, "Reading Turgenev" and "My House in Umbria." I adored the first and didn't want it to end but the second I couldn't make a connection with. I'm still giving this a high rating, though, because I loved the first tale so and, though I didn't care for the second, I recognize the quality of writing with which is was composed.
