5.0 out of 5 stars An enriching tale, April 30, 2001
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A Bell for Adano (Paperback)
An enchanting saga about how a variety of characters react to a difficult time.
An engaging view of a clash of cultures. The vigorous American culture versus the age-old Italian culture.
An endearing cast of characters that will linger in your memory. From peasant buffoons to wise old men. From selfish to magnanimous. From simple to sophisticated. From despicable to saintly. An amazing portait of humanity.
An enthralling quest of one Major Joloppo. His attempt to return civility to an incivil world.
And it is all couched in a warm, humorous story line which will keep you interested to the last word. Not a "page-turner" or thriller, but you will want to know what happens to the Major on his quest and how all of the characters either help or hinder him along the way.
I was very glad I followed the advice of the other reviewers and read this book.
