— The New York Times Book Review
“The novels of Andrea Camilleri breathe out the sense of place, the sense of humor, and the sense of despair that fills the air of Sicily.”
— Donna Leon
“This series is distinguished by Camilleri’s remarkable feel for tragicomedy, expertly mixing light and dark in the course of producing novels that are both comforting and disturbing.”
“The books are full of sharp, precise characterizations and with subplots that make Montalbano endearingly human… Like the antipasti that Montalbano contentedly consumes, the stories are light and easily consumed, leaving one eager for the next course.”
— The New York Journal of Books
“Hailing from the land of Umberto Eco and La Cosa Nostra, Montalbano can discuss a pointy-headed book like Western Attitudes Towards Death as unflinchingly as he can pore over crime-scene snuff photos. He throws together an extemporaneous lunch…as gracefully as he dodges advances from attractive women.”

As for the poor, blind reader who found the books hard to read, I sympathize but being near-sighted I still found I could hold the book in one hand in the bathtub while shampooing my head with the other and could still make it out at half-arm's length, so it passes my readability (and durability) test! If you love detective series with an interesting character and believable plots, this is a good one to try out via this collection.
As you see I have mixed feelings about the quality. Aniway I bought a box with the 18 first novels of Camilieri / Montalbano. It is the real thing!
I must admit to a number of laugh out loud moments as he approaches and solves convoluted cases. By the third book we see him start t to change and become more mature as he deals with issues in his personal life.

Now I have the nuisance of paying for return postage.
Where does The Flawed Glass title come from? Where does it say New Windmills on the book? Is this an error by Amazon?
'New Windmills: the Flawed Glass' but the actual title is different:
'Death in Sicily' and it is a compilation of the first 3 Camilleri novels.
I already have these! I am sending it back! I had pre-ordered it and do not think
this was mentioned in the pre-order...only that it was a new one.
