Ninfa dormiente (Teresa Battaglia, #2)

Ninfa dormiente by Ilaria Tuti
My rating: 3 of 5 starsLa prima parte del libro è come sempre accattivante, ti strega con descrizioni di luoghi e personaggi in un gioco di metafore e similitudini. Lasciando tutto in sospeso. Purtroppo, però, la seconda parte diventa una accozzaglia di eccessive informazioni, di storie che si intrecciano, di personaggi con le loro storie personali. Insomma ci sarebbe materiale per scrivere tre romanzi. Peccato, ad un certo punto mi sono stancata e ho saltato pagine perchè seguire il filo era veramente diventato faticoso.
Comunque Teresa Battaglia rimane l’ispettrice migliore in circolazione.
Il terzo libro sarà sicuramente migliore.

On his own, he can bring me to the end of my patience on occasion.  He has a big problem with understanding instructions, often he doesn’t understand the tasks set. Instead of reading instructions, he copies them.  Instead of answering questions, he repeats them.  Instead of filling in blanks, he squashes the whole sentence in the small spaces.  Yet, I can see how hard he works and tries.  He is also good humoured most…
