Citando sus palabras tragedias de horrores y escenas de maldad, con intermedios de hazanas virtuosas. Pero lo grande de la novela, es su riqueza argumental, que tiene como fondo la Guerra de los Treinta Anos y la dominacion espanola de Italia, ademas del interes que tienen las peripecias de los protagonistas Renzo y Lucia, que solo pueden casarse despues de vicisitudes sin cuento.

Considered the greatest novel in Italian literature, Manzoni himself described it as a collection of tragedies of horrors and scenes of wickedness with intervals of virtuous feats. But the greatest thing in this novel is its argumental richness that has as a background in the Thirty Years War and the Spanish invasion of Italy.

    " Best Italian novel ever written. It's long but worth it! "

    " This is an Italian classic that seems unknown in the U.S. "

    " It's a great story, but really difficult to read. Manzoni goes into great detail, where detail isn't always necessary. I am reading it because I am assigning to my students this summer. I don't think I'd read it otherwise. Perhaps after I do more research into the story, I'll appreciate it more! "

    " The epic adventure of Renzo and Lucia, betrothed then separated by circumstances and reunited by love- a classic of Italian literature. "

    " I read this when I was about 10 years old because it was one of the few books available to me. I missed half of what was going on but it remains a favorite. "

    " It's good but too long. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shannon | 10/20/2008

    " Not the Italian wonder! This was an historical novel that had way to much history that did not involve any characters at all. Painful! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/27/2008

    " I couldn't finish it. The author was too long winded. It is a good story with some good characters. Someday I'll finish it. Reminds me a lot of Les Mis. "

    " Possibly the best novel I ever read. "
