Journal Entry 1 by NICNIC2 from Glasgow, Scotland United Kingdom on Monday, March 14, 2011

6 out of 10

My thoughts on this book:
Readable murder mystery set in Venice. I wouldn't say it was gripping exactly but I was interested enough to keep reading. The revelation about Wellauer towards the end was a complete surprise. I can't say that I loved this book but I would probably read the next one in the series to see how the characters are developed. There are a lot of complaints about the effects of tourism on Venice but considering the author is not native I think this is a bit rich.

This book is travelling in a bookring!
Here are some gentle rules for my bookrings/rays:

1. Please don't feel under pressure to read the book at break-neck speed but do try to finish it within a month (if you need longer than this then add a journal entry to let us know :) )
2. Don't panic if the book dies while you have it, just PM me so I can get a replacement up and running.
3. Please journal when you receive the book, then edit that journal entry or add a new one to let us all know what you thought.
4. Make release notes when you have sent the book on to the next member.

I hope everyone enjoys reading the book. I'm looking forward to reading all of your comments.

Arrived here as a ring... it may travel to Mallorca when I go on holiday next week and be sent on from there... otherwise it might have to dally a bit here in the Alps until I return as I've another ring here before this one and am flat out work-wise until I leave on holiday!
I've enjoyed all the other Donna Leons I've read so far, so look forward to this one. Thanks for making this book available!

Here as a ring, I've taken it on holiday to read. Hadn't indulged in a Leon in a long while and enjoyed it. Somehow I remembered Brunetti's kids as being older so a bit confused by the time-line. Will try to send it from here if I can get it parcelled and to the post office when it's open...

I am about halfway through... lots of vicarious thrills: I haven't been to Venice in such a long time.

I have the next reader's address and will send it off soon.
