Few minutes ago I read the words "The End", I closed the book, and I felt lost. I will deeply miss Clara and her friends. I will remember the warm feeling that this story gave me.
What a fantastic journey this has been!
Clara, thank you for the great things you taught me about life and friendship.Thank you for showing me how important small things and short moments are. Thank you for reminding me that we we should be brave in life and embrace our passions.
Simona, author of this book, thank you for creating Clara and telling us her story. Thank you for giving so much life to all the characters in this book. Thank you for beautifully painting so many magical Italian places. But now, please, go back to work, write another story of Clara, and give us a chance to immerse ourselves one more time into her world.
With the guidance of a wise and endearing elderly man, Mario, Clara begins to discover her own identity, the rich cultural heritage of Italy, and the intersection between the two. A very beautiful and unlikely friendship develops between Mario and Clara, unveiling a world of music, photography, art, and Italian delicacies. Through Simona Grossi’s masterful descriptions and vibrant imagery I felt as if I was in the best imaginable daydream. I could even taste the pizza! And when I thought I had finally figured out the rhythm of events, the story pivoted and threw me into an emotional rollercoaster that could only be constructed through relatable and engaging characters.
"Looking for Clara" is both enchanting and inspiring to anyone, who like the heroine, has ever been stuck in the monotonous sequence of daily life. Embracing the expression, “stop and smell the roses,” "Looking for Clara" suggests stopping for chocolate cake, jazz music, and life’s simple joys. However, the book is more than a lighthearted succession of happy discoveries. It is filled with contrasts that capture the realities of life: youth and old age, the simplicity of friendship and the complexity of romantic feelings, vibrant music and reflective silences. In this perfect balance of highs and lows, the brilliant Simona Grossi, finds a way to capture and maintain a reader’s interest from page 1 to 251 (did I mention I couldn't put the book down?). The result is that I did not feel as if I was sitting on my couch and reading a book. No, I was sitting in a flower laden coffeeshop in Italy and listening to an old friend narrate Clara’s life story. A story, which was as sweet and memorable as the raspberry gelato I was sharing with my friend.
