Lynn and jawjaw, I have to agree. I've decided I don't like it because there isn't much dialogue. And the dialogue that is there isn't very interesting. It's all facts, no emotion.

I fell like I'm reading a history book with Italian words thrown in and many little towns and villas that don't mean anything to me.

I have enjoyed reading about the food and decorating.

I keep waiting for this love affair to happen and I don't think it does.

Also, I saw the movie while reading the book and it was drastically different. ANyone seen it?

Sorry to have led everyone astray here. I feel so responsible, but I ehard the movie was great (which I don't agree with). I read lots of reviews on the book too and thought it would be a great read for all of us.


We'll begin our next book soon and it's,
the five people you met in heaven, by Mitch Albom. He's the same fellow who wrote Tuesdays With Morrie.

I've heard this is a book that makes you think. It's also a very quick read. The kind you can't put down. So we shall see.
