    A reviewer

    An absurdly funny tale of an eccentric (THE GROSSEST RECIPES!),opinionated Englishman in the Tuscan hills. He and his female eastern european neighbor could not be more comically wrong headed in their uncharitable speculations about each other. I laughed 'til I cried.

    Hands down, the most hysterical book ever

    I have no idea what the other reviewer was thinking because this book is a gem. I mean a true, original gem. It's a satire of the let's-go-to-Tuscany-and-find-ourselves genre. It's beautifully written. Its recipes should be banished from the Earth! No wonder the New York Times, The Washington Post and Booklist (which gave its sequel a starred review) have raved. Please don't deny yourself this treat. Though you may want to pass on the garlic ice cream.

    Tough to like

    This book takes satire too far to be entertaining. It is trying to poke fun at the likes of "Under the Tuscan Sun" but falls short by taking itself too seriously. Of the twelve people in our book club, I was the only person to finish this book and I did not choose it. Neither of the two main characters were particularly likable. Avoid this one.

    Boring until the last few pages - then rediculous

    Thought while it could be interesting, there was no real plot to speak of and the text dragged on. Nothing really happens until the last few pages, but by then you are so anxious to just 'get this painful drivel over with' you really could care less. It is boring in the beginning and then preposterous at the end. Not one of my better reads...sorry I spent the money on the 'paperback'.
