Some of the authors feel they must throw in alot of Italian words and expressions, which is okay if only a few, but one chapter I had a hard time really getting into the story because the author used so many Italian expressions, I had to plow thru and read all the translations. Other authors just told their stories without all the Italian words.
One chapter was extremely heavy on ancient Italian history of which I found boring, so I skipped thru most of that one.
Overall, I think most of the women went to Italy to "find something" that they felt lacking in their lives and most found "something", maybe not what they expected, but they were still moved by the experience. It was interesting to see how others live. As an American, I only know fast paced life as we live here, but this book is a reminder that not everyone lives this way and it was a nice escape and brought me a new appreciation of another culture and a slower way of life, in general. I do hope to visit someday.
