I love it. I love its warmth and its vibrancy, its..." Read more of this review »

{Update} Finished it. Really, I give this about a 3.8.
5 stars for Italy.
3.5 for India.
3 for Indonesia.

This book could have consisted of just the Italy section and I would have been satiated. I ate it up like she eats pizza in Napoli. Sadly, I think

{Update} Well, I finished it. I found it disappointing. I really wanted to garner insight into what it was like to be a German during WWII. I liked the topic but I didn't like the way the author handled it. I don't particularly like her writing style ...more

W.H. Auden
“Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can; all of them make me laugh.”
W.H. Auden

Thomas Hardy
“Though Farmer Troutham had just hurt him, he was a boy who could not himself bear to hurt anything. He had never brought home a nest of young birds without lying awake in misery half the night after, and often reinstating them and the nest in their original place the next morning. He could scarcely bear to see trees cut down or lopped, from a fancy that it hurt them; and late pruning, when the sap was up and the tree bled profusely, had been a positive grief to him in his infancy. This weakness of character, as it may be called, suggested that he was the sort of man who was born to ache a good deal before the fall of the curtain upon his unnecessary life should signify that all was well with him again. He carefully picked his way on tiptoe among the earthworms, without killing a single one.”
Thomas Hardy

Henry David Thoreau
“If the day and night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal - that is your success.”
Henry David Thoreau
