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.

The Rosie Effect ~ by Graeme Simsion

41gg2ni0vol-_sx324_bo1204203200_This has been to me even more brilliant than the first book, The Rosie Project. I love Don (43, Aussie, now living in NY), and I believe I would marry him if I could. Even if he tends to embarrass her wife, Rosie, or even if he doesn’t get basic social laws. Sometimes. What you need to know that he is really investing a lot of energy and effort on a new project… BUD project – Baby Under Development project.

The whole story isn’t predictable at all. Besides Rosie and Don, the reader follows the lives and familiar/love events of many other characters, which represent ordinary people difficulties in life and marriage. It is like a perfect photo of all that happens around us and among our families too.

There is no spoiler here, but if you loved The Rosie Project, I highly recommend you to read this incredibly hilarious, witty, realistic and well-written novel. It is Christimas time, time for a good read!

PS I couldn’t find a program written in English… sorry, maybe it is my lack of time or I am just tired. I promise I’ll go and search for it and attach it here as soon as possible.
