i ve read VE READ YEAR SETTING WAS FANTASTIC I ve read this ear Setting was fantastic book was strange I felt like perhaps the translation from the Italian might have been a little off as in parts the book is written uite simply and in other the Italian might have been a little off as in parts the book is written uite simply and in other it contains the most convoluted sentences peppered with unnecessarily complicated words I was also bewildered by the fact that the character of Dante is weirdly aggressive and extremely unlikeable this made it too hard to finish the book he has a weird penchant for hitting guards and kicking beggars It s really bizarre Since I couldn t relate to the protagonist at all it was too hard to finish this bookThe point at which Leoni completely lost me was with the introduction of the customary exotic beauty from the east who dances before the characters in a tavern completely mesmerising everyone with the vision of the soft down visible through her clothes revealing the arc of her pudenda Please I can not be bothered dealing with another story of some genius protagonist whose powers of reason are clouded by the presence of some peskily distracting sexy lass BORING I just could not get into this story I had a hard time keeping the characters and plot straight Really complex extremely philosophical sometimes there is action sometimes mystery Lots of Italian words Written in an old style Weird challenging but I liked it anyway.
