Very interesting book - illustrations are wonderful, and CD was a really pleasant surprise. I can see why Donna Leon sometimes bothers the "natives," but I agree wholeheartedly with her concern about the Cruise Ships - keep them out of the canal - environmentally, it is insane to allow them in that historic and very special waterway. I can think of several possibilities to continue to make use of the tourist money without the ships on the inside. . .

You have to understand what this book is before you buy it. It's a combination of the historical and present-day role of the gondola in Venician life,a somewhat arcane description of building one, a rant against tourist cruise ships (which I happen to agree with), and a reprise of some of the themes from the Brunetti novels (e.g. Italian governmental corruption).

I liked the book, but not everyone will find it as fulfilling as a new Brunetti....
