Boring, repetitive and not very funny. It was a chore to continue reading until the end in the hope that the story would improve-it didn't.

Never have I been more entertained by, or more envious of, of an author's escapades than in Peter Moore's 'Vroom with a View.' If you already love Vespas, it's a must-read... if, on the other hand, you'd never given the lovable scooters more than a second thought, be prepared to spend countless hours scouring the internet for your own personal Sophia.

I know- never judge a book by its cover- but the delightful and colorful cover only teased you about what was ahead- I finished it in less than two days. Peter Moore's adventure throughout Italy on his 61 Vespa was delightful and witty. I laughed and even felt like the dirt was hitting me as he rode through the roads and towns of italy. His description of each town and experience was personal and charming- its a great story on adventure, longing, self discoveries, and just life! it makes you want to raise a glass and toast! salute!
