This novella was just the right level for me, an intermediate level. I especially liked the definitions for more difficult vocabulary right in the text. I only wish there were more like this available.

I wish I had a dozen books like this!

It was perfect for an intermediate level- a good mix of verbs and verb tenses, use of pronouns, etc. Handy cultural info included and enough vocabulary to let you learn a bit without making it tedious. The story is cute and keeps you interested (which also stops the urge to constantly grab a dictionary for words you don't know).

It's not long, but it's an excellent value for the price.

Only one complaint- towards the end in a pivotal scene for the plot I am quite certain the author used the wrong name a couple of times in a dialogue. I read over it a few times and it just couldn't make any sense unless the names were backwards. I understand that this comment might sound suspect, as I am the language learner here, but I wouldn't include it in my review if I wasn't certain.

I really enjoyed this book, but I could never have read it without the help of my integrated Kindle Italian-English Dictionary by Andrei Pushkin. (I am a beginner at Italian (5 months), but know Spanish.) I was so surprised when I discovered that I only needed to move the 5 way button to get the definitions from the dictionary. This helped me read the book at a faster pace. I recommend getting both books for more convenience.
Omicidio alla moda takes place in the fashion industry, and gives you the flavor of Milano. It's a good read. By the way, another Italian Easy Reader, Un amore per la tua cucina, has the same main character, Alessandro. I might even like it better than Omocidio.

This is a good book for someone who has a decent understanding of basic Italian grammar and some basic vocabulary. (I have only had a couple of months of self-study Italian, but speak French and it helps).

Story is not deep, but it is a good page turner, so you can get engaged and forget that you are reading in Italian. There is some good vocabulary repetition as well. And it is definitely easier than some of the literary classics.

This is also the first book I am reading where I have installed an Italian-English dictionary as the default dictionary on the Kindle. It is awesome to be able to look up a word just by pointing at it.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I was so happy that I could actually understand it! I had to look up words quite often but I think I understood it even without doing that -- I just wanted to make sure that what I thought was correct. And the story was interesting and kept my attention. I wish there were a lot more like it.

This is a cute enough story for reading aloud to practice your Italian pronunciation or develop your general comprehension thanks to periodic translations of new phrases.

I was looking for a way to practice reading out loud in Italian when I came across the Italian Easy Reader series. All in all, the story served its purpose. I got to work on my pronunciation, it kept a twelve year old Italian girl engaged as she helped me, and the other two Italian adults riding in the long car ride from Italy to France weren't bored by it.

There were some typo's along the way so just be aware of that and don't use this book at the ultimate example of all Italian writing. (By the way, when I caught an error, I double checked with the adults in the car - both of whom are highly educated - just to be sure).

Also, the ending felt rushed with one major loose end that left you feeling like the book was unfinished.

Still, this is an Easy Reader book, not a classical fiction / murder mystery. So I give it four stars it in its category as an educational tool and not on its story line merits.

It was an excellent novel for learners. I bought a few so called "easy" readers which turned out to be too hard and I had to stop after a few chapters. This is indeed "easy" yet has enough new vocabularies and uses various tenses and pronouns. All those grammar points I read in textbooks come to life. The story which is full of the Italian culture is interesting so that it makes you want to know what happens next. I agree with one review that the author used a wrong name. (I reported it to the company with the easy built in system.) I only wish this would come in a regular book form. The author has written other easy novels; I'm eager to read more.

Written in very simple Italian the characters and scenes do not develop fully. But, as a training device for reading Italian it is more than adequate. It uses a lot of idiom which would not be included in lessons. It's easy to understand even without a dictionary on hand. Even one who is pretty much a beginner can read it and get a good read on the beat of Italian conversation. As literature it may be lacking but as a training aid it excels.
