    more from this reviewer

    Enjoyed this book!

    I really enjoyed reading this book. The plot starts slowly, and confusing at times. Keep with it, the plot develops quickly, with a surprise near the end that caught me off guard. Even though I haven't been to Italy I felt like I was there. Not a "beach read" though, it takes a bit of thought, and you need to pay close attention or you will have to back track to see where you missed the turns in the story.

    I was traveling through Italy this summer which included a visit to Venice and found this book in a hotel guest library. The story takes place in Venice and is a good historical fiction with, romance and drama. I could not put it down, it kept me very entertained. I have already sent it to a friend. Enjoy.

    Second part of the book was a '5', what happened to the first half?

    The first half of the book was long and drawn out and after stabilizing the character's stories, there was about 50 pages where nothing went on and I was even debating not finishing the book. However, the second half was almost like reading a different story. The plot became more structured, and you began to actually see the characters coming into their own. Overall, it was just as the '3' star rating says okay, but not great.

    Good book (just be sure your have NO distractions)!

    I was suprised to see another reviewer found this book to be 'the worst book' he/she has ever read. While I am certainly not saying 'The Remedy' is the Best book I have read, I would definitely recommend it to a friend. The story does tend to jump around and introduces many characters. However, Michelle Lovric is very good at developing scenery and charaters and she has a way of making the unbelievable, believable. I loved her first novel 'The Floating Book'! Bottomline: Good read very complex, so make sure you have a quiet area to fully enjoy this book!

    Quite possibly the worst

    This book is quite possibly the worst mistake I have ever picked up. If you find yourself feeling intrigued by this story, run to the nearest shrink and beg for an hour of their time. The characters are undeveloped and unbeleivable selfish, the 'plot' skips back and forth between so many different scenes and venues you forget what you read 5 minutes ago. I love reading and I have rarely met a book a didn't like but if I could sum this one up in a single word it would be DISGUSTING. Find something else to torture yourself with.
