Had to be there

by brunello on Apr 29, 2010

The book did not seem to " put me there" as many travel books do.


A very good read

by Danielsmom on Jan 14, 2010

I had a personal interest in this book, my father's mother having been a Morpurgo.. and Jan Morris writes so well it's always a treat to read him.


The City -- a mystery

by Robo on Jul 2, 2009

Trieste -- one has to know about it to find it or want to go to this far off corner to experience it. Rich in the history of European royality and war necessity or convenience, it has changed hands through what ever army marched through. BUT it is and Italian city and you'll learn to love it. It is a very personal view by the author, not a third party intellectual fact book. Then you'll have to go there.
