Read by members of the cast of Virgin Territory, the exciting film based on The Decameron, Boccacio's raunchy 14th-century work is given a new lease of life in this inventive and witty production.

A group of Florentine youths escape to the mountain countryside during the time of the plague, only to regale each other with vignettes of sex, vice, temptation, and come-uppance. This is a strictly adult listen, which will bring a little colour to your cheeks and have you laughing out loud. Download and start listening now!

    " I had been wanting to read it for quite some time, but was inspired to finally take the plunge after watching Pasolini's film on the book. The film was incredible and gave insight into the type of things one should be looking for in the book. The book was good, but was really harmed by the horrific translator in the Oxford edition "

    " Before the Canterbury Tales, there was Bocaccio's Decameron. Bawdy and very entertaining! "

    " I enjoyed reading the Decameron one or two stories at a time over a few months. Most of the 100 stories are quite entertaining. This old, 1930, edition contains several color illustrations by Jean de Bosschere that seem oddly modern compared to the 14th century tales. "

    " This book is a collection of bawdy anti-Church satire and mockery set in Black Death era Italy. If you enjoy a good laugh at the expense of hypocrites, this is a great read. Or, if you think everyone's just trying to get by as best they can and have some fun in the meantime, metaphysical systems aside, here's a great illustration of that. "
