  • Perfect Book For When You Are Missing Venice Sep 11, 2008
    by skyprincess

    My only complaint about John Berendt is that he is not writing books fast enough. This is a wonderful book that takes you on a grand adventure in the city of the Grand Canal. Living in Venice, John gains access to the citizens of Venice, their stories and their palaces. While there, he tries to solve the mystery of who would deliberately set the famed Opera House on fire, destroying its multi-million dollar restoration progress. His sleuthing does not always seem to go anywhere but the journey is marvelous. This is the book to read when you come home from Venice and wish you were still there. Berendt makes you feel like you are in Venice again in the most wonderful way--as a insider and not a tourist.

    John Berendt has done for Venice what he did for Savannah - brought it life. The places, the people, the happenings weave an intriguing story.
