Different from the Riviera I visited! I think I'll stay in my beautiful hotel in S.Margherita instead!
I enjoyed this book. It did take me a long time to finish. Not exciting enough to keep me turning the pages but so many things are true about the Italian way of living. I did laugh at many things that reminded me of my great Aunt. Things such as you should never have salad till the end of the meal and many other tid bits took me back in time.Was this review helpful?

AN IN SOUCIANT AND CHARMING READING
Many have extolled the virtues of living in Italy, but few have done so with the insouciance and charm of Annie Hawes. Her story of years in a small Ligurian village is pure delight, as sunny as the oil yielded by dappled groves of olive trees lining the area. Now, an additional delight - the audio version of 'Extra Virgin' as read by Miriam Margolyes. This gifted actress has worked with many of Hollywood's top directors, including Martin Scorsese in 'The Age Of Innocence.' She starred in her own television series, as well as gathering other television credits in various telefilms. Ms. Margolyes also conquered radio with her stunning rendition of a novel in which she played all members of the British Royal Family. Her reading of 'Extra Virgin' is one more stellar accomplishment, allowing us to revisit the incomparably beautiful Italian Riviera whenever we wish.Was this review helpful?
