lection: il sorriso di angelica

And of course, there’s Livia. The greatest compliment I can pay these books is that where they have been translated into a TV series; the episode of this story is so faithful to its original format that you wonder what came first. Quotes from Il sorriso di Ang I will continue to read them. What I realized in reading is how very annoying and distracting it is to me as a reader when an author uses spelling to indicate an accent.

I’ve now run out of the Inspector Montalbano books loaned by dj good friend John. Again, another very good book, and a good example of the series.

Where we differ is clearer for others to see; I admit that he is more desirable to women, but in my defense he is Italian. For years, he has been faithful to his long-distance girlfriend Livia. To me, this makes much more sense than a “case closed” sort of ending. As a matter of fact, his parents knew Pirandello and were even distant friends, as he tells in his essay on Pirandello “Biography of the changed son”.

She seems initially to make him regress to a besotted teenager and the story is about his struggle to understand himself as much as it is to solve the crime. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. This interesting subplot provides yet another glimpse into the complicated police inspector. What can we do?


Il sorriso di Angelica : Andrea Camilleri :

As is usual we hear about the troubled relationship between Montalbano and his girlfriend who lives on the mainland and occasionally flies in to have yet another abdrea with him. When you read every book in a series as extended as this one its a long term relationship where mutual flaws are forgiven the rosy glow of a reunited friendship.

The difference between the small screen and his books is the richness in the prose, the imagery of the beauty of Sicily oh and the food.

He feels guilty about it we’re supposed to like him for that, Camil,eri guess. Our beloved inspector is now just two years short of sixty, and as in the last few books, he continues to muse about aging and growing older throughout the nove like a 3. In all, this episode ranks among the middle of the earlier novels in the series – a big step up from its recent predecessors. Back to Livia, she comes to visit him in most books, and I believe there’s been mention of rare, occasional visits by him to her.

In the process, he meets Angelica and is mesmerized by her beauty.

This feature provides an interesting quirk which has become something of a fad among his readership even in mainland Italy. Borrowed from my local library. Still, it’s a fun read, and in that vein I have to say that I probably haven’t had so many good laughs with any other crime fiction series as I have with this one.

One of the victims Angelica Cosulich is a beautiful woman who manages to dazzle Montalabano and make slrriso feel young once again. And that’s supposed to make it all right, one assumes.

Il sorriso di Angelica

This entry in the series had a bit less about Montalbano’s food which was a shame as I love that part. Not a huge loss, but I do hope to see them again. Per non parlare della forzatura delle citazioni dall’Orlando furioso, quanto mai artificiose e raffazzonate con l’unico scopo di inventare un nobile pretesto per una storia insulsa.


But, Salvo needs a therapist; I’m surprised Livia angelkca brought that up.

I could picture some of the places Camilleri described, perhaps because I’ve been to Sicily, although none of the places mentioned, except Palermo. Many of the stories have two simultaneous crime stories that converge at the solution, or a past crime and current crime being investigated, but in this one we do not learn of past crimes until all is known.

Originally from Porto Empedocle, Sicily, Camilleri began studies at the Faculty of Literature inwithout concluding them, meanwhile publishing poems and short stories.

If you want free of Livia, get free of her. Until, at last, the solution to the cri It took me 17 books to realise that dear old Inspector Montalbano is simply a bit of a filthy old man who enjoys salivating over pretty young things who would never be interested in him if it wasn’t for his position of power.

Livia, apareciendo y desapareciendo como el Guadiana entre brotes de histeria y celos. The silver lining of reduced mobility of a painful back condition is the need to sit upright and rest up which allows me to read.

It took me 17 books to realise that dear old Inspector Montalbano is simply a bit of a filthy old man who enjoys salivating over pretty young things who would never be interested in him if it wasn’t for his position of power.

Perfino il linguaggio caratteristico di questi romanzi, che tanto risultava vivace e innovativo nelle sue prime apparizioni, qui si rivela stanco, vuoto, quasi un patetico espediente virtuosistico volto a mascherare la sostanziale inconsistenza dell’insieme.

He loves a good meal at his favorite sorrlso, Enzo’s.
