I am enjoying a cabin morning in Venezia, with Donna Leoan and Caterina Pellegrini. It is time to discuss The Jewels of Paradise.
(I post as I go today, starting already after one photo and just one sentence.......continuing through the day)
My first point:
- when I started The Jewels of Paradise I had absolutely no idea this was not another Commissario Guido Brunetti book. For almost 100 pages I told myself, when will my dear Guido arrive..........
I think I missed a lot that way.
- my second point:
I LOVE the book
My third point:
I can never resist books which dive deep into a special theme. Like this one and the erea of the baroque and the life of the composer Agostino Steffani. I have spent many hours googling and listening to his music on YouTube, and I even downloaded for my iPad Steffani´s Stabat Mater.
My fourth point:
Cabin breakfast ready......I´ll be back.......
Niobe, which Caterina Pellegrini found on YouTube
Not exactly my favorite music
My fifth point:
Catarina Pellegrini walks around in Venezia/Venice just like commissario Brunetti. They have different eyes though, see different sights.
I love both their walks.
My sixth point:
In the Silece, I wonder if you and me are the only one who have had the time to read Donna Leon this week........
My 7th point:
I have tried all week to find a way to contact Donna Leon,
My 8th point:
Jane, I agree with you, I do miss the fantastic meals Paola serves.
What I find in this book and not in the Brunetti ones though, is the visits to the library and the searches done. I love that!
And you are right Jane, about the cost of coffee at Florians.
