    Let me start by saying that I love Venice and all things Venetian I love reading anything that has to do with Venice So the fact that this book takes place in Venice gave it at least one redeeming quality I ve heard from than one person that Donna Leon was a good author, but after reading this book, I have serious doubts about that and I m not sure she deserves a second chance She set up a great plot and had intruiging characters, but then did nothing with them I got halfway through the book when the detective expresses his frustration at feeling as though he knew nothing about what had happened, and I felt exactly the same way as the reader I felt bored Reading a mystery I m not sure that should ever happen I also wonder if the woman has an editor There were pages upon pages that I would have cut, things that did nothing for the story, nothing for the plot, nothing for the character development And I...

    Well, I ve now entered the world of Commissario Guido Brunetti, of the police force of Venice This is the first of Donna Leon s long running series set in that fabled city, which is equally a character in the novel This was an enjoyable beginning with a nice introduction to Brunetti s family, his investigation techniques, many fellow officers, and assorted Venetians of all stripes His travels around the city give an interesting and occasionally claustr...

    I chose this book, the first in the Commissario Brunetti mystery series, because the setting is Venice, and my family and I will be briefly visiting there soon Donna Leon does a wonderful job describing the city If you re looking for the type of mystery that you can t put down, this isn t it Except for the ending, when it all comes together, this book is about characters and the setting A famous, but not particularly likeable conductor is found dead in his dressing room at the La Fenice theatre Teatro La Fenice , an opera house in Venice Brunetti is assigned to investigate the murder I like him, as well as the fact that he adores his wife This was an enjoyable read and I look forward to continuing with in this series Some of my favorite quotes He left his office and walked slowly up towards Piazza San Marco Along the way, he paused to look into shop windows, shocked, as he always was when in the centre of the city, by how quickly their composition was changing It seemed to him that all the shops that served the native population pharmacies, shoemakers, groceries were slowly and inexorably disappearing, replaced by slick boutiques and souvenir shops that catered to the tourists, filled with luminescent plastic gondolas from Taiwan and papier m ch masks from Hong Kong It was the desires of the transients, not the needs of the residents, that the city s merchants answered He wondered how long it would take before the enti...

    If you didn t know, you don t have to know how to write to publish a book All you need to do is pick a popular location, let s say Venice, populate it with one dimensional characters, every imaginable stereotype about Italy and the world, sentences that couldn t be called writing even if one was trying to be exceptionally kind and there you go Don t forget to randomly insert a bunch of Italian words to show your deep insight into Italian culture You don t have to know anything about writing a crime novel to write a crime novel either You pick a protagonist, commissario Brunetti, give everything away in the first chapter and then drag the story on by repeating everything you already said one thousand times What to say of Brunetti Commissario Brunetti who is not even one dimensional lacking dimension and the best you can do is keep talking about how we likes his coffee If you pile on enough insignificant details, perhaps people won t notice you don t have an idea what characterization is or what it should look like A clue it s not piling insignificant details one onto another Why bother with characte...

    Es gibt kaum ein Genre das mich mittlerweile mehr langweilt und nervt als Thriller ok, der ganze New Adult Romantasykram und wie sie alle hei en mal ausgenommen Ab und zu lese ich aber gerne einen Krimi in dem die L sungen nicht auf Teufel komm raus schockieren m ssen und dadurch an Logik und Glaubw rdigkeit einb en Bevorzugt lese ich die Krimi Klassiker von Agatha Christie, Sherlock Holmes oder auch Edgar Wallace, die auf dem englischen Land spielen und in mir oft ein heimeliges Gef hl ausl sen Brunetti mit dem Schauplatz Venedig mochte ich ebenfalls gerne und l sst sich gut zur Entspannung lesen Im Vergleich zu Christie oder Wallace ist zumindest dieser erste Band relativ handlungsarm, bis ca 75% des Buches passiert nichts von Bedeutung, es werden auch nicht st ndig neue, interessante Hinweise entdeckt Venedig ist hier im Mittelpunkt, es wird viel ber die Stadt aber auch die Personen geschrieben, was vielleicht etwas langweilig war im Vergleich zu Christie, mich durch die K rze des Buches aber trotzdem bei der Stange halten konnte Ich mochte au erdem die Beschreibungen der Stadt und auch die langsame Ermittlung hat mich letztlich nicht gest rt, das war besonders im Vergleich zu den Hau drauf Krimis bzw Thrillern sehr entschleunigend und angenehm Ich fand es zus tzlich sehr positiv, dass der Kommissar mal ausnahmsweise keine dunkle, tragische Vergangenheit hat die im Mittelpunkt steht...

    I have read ten of Donna Leon s books and this review reflects my opinion of most of them Some have a slightly better story, a little engaging than others, but for the most part, the books are about Brunetti, and about Venezia, and the Italian people.Commissario Guido Brunetti is a deep and interesting character, but he is unlike most detectives you ll find in American mystery books Brunetti solves crimes with his wits, and all the while deals with crooked politicians his independent and wonderful wife and his 2 children, who come complete with the normal teenage problems Throughout the books, though, Brunetti never loses sight of what is important food Leon s books are as much a culinary delight as a mystery lover s passion As I read, I find myself yearning to pop the cork on a bottle of Prosecco and mix up a plate of farfalle with a creamy wild mushroom sauce Some have argued that the mystery in Leon s books isn t that captivating I won t disagree with that, but the characterization and the setting are so ...

    I read this because it s set in Venice, a city I ve only been to on a dull rainy day in winter, but one I enjoyed visiting very much The damp only served to heighten the atmosphere and the lack of tourists gave us room to move and explore The novel does have some nice descriptions of Venice and the Venetians but otherwise I found the writing a bit stilted and the story somewhat predictable Comissario Guido Brunetti is the detective in charge of investigating the death of a famous German conductor half way through a performance of La Traviata He is an interesting character and consummate Italian who seems to be able to run the investigation his own way despite an overbearing boss and has a good feel for when people are telling him all they know or not The murdered conductor turns out to be a not very likeable man and I had trouble investing any energy in...

    Before I get to the review part, can I ask a question of my Goodreads friends I know some of you probably speak Italian, so can someone please tell me how to properly pronounce Fenice With my years of French I automatically go with Fe nees , but I suspect the correct pronunciation might be Fen nee che Whenever I have to say the title out loud I m never sure if I m saying it right and always end up waffling between the two options So it d be nice if someone could tell me how to say it right Okay, anyway The story opens at the beginning of the third act of Traviata at the famous Fenice opera in Venice The conductor, a man named Wellauer, has been found dead of cyanide poisoning in his dressing room There are plenty of what we ll call The Usual Suspects I watched Casablanca last night a much younger wife, a passionate soprano, a betrayed performer, and plenty of journalists and musicians who know way too many of the conductor s dirty secrets Enter police commissioner Brunetti, who has to figure out which of these people had the best reason to want the conductor dead To do this, he has to dig into Wellauer s past and try to figure out what kind of man he was This takes many chapters, and lots of interviews over the phone and in restaurants with a variety of people who worked with the con...
