    " Predivna knjiga na srpskom objavljena pod naslovom Skupljacica badema... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cyn | 2/6/2014

    " I really had a difficult time keeping the family lineage and all those Italian names straight..even through to the end of the story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kim | 2/6/2014

    " I could not get into this one... Only made it about halfway through "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna Tomasso | 2/3/2014

    " Bellissimo, grazie Samantha per avermelo regalato "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bachyboy | 1/30/2014

    " Quirky, unusual and with a truckload of Italian characters who all have something to say about Mennulara, the family's maid who dies. The book is spread over 11 days and unravels the mystery of her life, her death and relationships. Full of gossip and conjecture. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gina | 1/30/2014

    " A novel set in early 1960s Sicily and translated in to English, it was a difficult novel to get into at first because it seemed to be about a huge variety of characters (who were difficult to place) and their reflections on the life of deceased servant Mennulara. The second half of the novel was much easier to follow as many questions about Mennulara's role, relationships and her accumulation of wealth were addressed. It was OK in the end. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jen Randall | 1/5/2014

    " One of those rare books that I'm just relieved to be done with. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chrissy | 1/1/2014

    " Perfect holiday reading - Italy, intrigue and brilliantly drawn characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 12/27/2013

    " This book got great reviews in Europe, but I wasn't overly impressed. There were a lot of characters to follow and the plot was pretty slow. Mostly, I just loved the book cover, with its Van Gogh image! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 11/14/2013

    " Sicilian family life and drama at its best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 theresa Younce | 10/23/2013

    " This book is translated from Italian and the setting is a small town in Sicily. A woman of the town dies, and the story is based on what others say and think about her. But no one person knows the whole story. I liked the writing and the way the character was carefully and slowly developed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betsey | 8/2/2013

    " This was a great tale about a woman's life a small town in Sicily, complete with a the catholic church and the mafioso. A great source book for Italian names! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vera | 8/1/2013

    " Una "gustosa" ed accattivante storia di famiglia attraverso la quale la scrittrice, avvocato americano di origini sicule, ripercorre e svela il romanzo di vita di una parente e la sua cultura d'origine. Un mondo incredibile si svela agli occhi dell'autrice e del lettore, con un finale a sorpresa. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Farfalle | 6/20/2013

    " What a nutty family. We recognized some of the Sicilians we know and love in this complex tale of a foolish family bound by their narrow caste views. All the names were confusing at the start, but the tale coalesced as the characters were developed - well written and a delight to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Devilish | 5/18/2013

    " Beautifully drawn lives in a small village - all the interconnections, suspicions, age-old things that make up the fabric of the relationships. Set in Sicily. And a nice mysterious twist... "

    " one of the best books i have ever read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Book Concierge | 12/23/2011

    " This is an intricate tale of a poor, "ignorant" servant whose death and dying wishes has everone in her small Sicilian town talking. Slow start, but I was eventually completely captivated by the intrigue. Very Italian story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 9/10/2011

    " I agree there were a lot of characters to remember but by the middle of the book it was made clear. I enjoyed it. The style is different from what I normally enjoy. "
