Reviews - What do our customers think?
Save your money  Mar 11, 2008
While there were some interesting passages in "La Dolce Vita," the grammar, spelling and typographical errors were so numerous that it was distracting and frustrating to read. The best parts could be found better written in a tour guide.
 
Like a Chat over cappuccino  Feb 21, 2008
Even though the publisher sent out the wrong book before editing, I overlooked it all and just enjoyed reading the humorous experiences that Ms Phillips had during her first stay in Cortona. I am also an expat living in Italy and I can appreciate all the problems she encountered and she certainly had a knack for adding humor to the most disasterous events. If you want to know what the inside of a church looks like, then you should consult a guide book. This was not a guide book nor was it meant to be-I think the author wrote like she was telling it to me over cappuccino, and I truly enjoyed journeying through her year in Cortona. It was a delightful read.
 
Been There, Done That.....   Feb 20, 2008
I enjoyed Charlotte's book... not so much for her writing skills, but for the reminders of the Tuscan hill town that I fell in love with 6 years ago. While I don't live in Cortona, my heart lives there, with the people, places, sights, sounds and wonderful friends I've made there through the years. I've been traveling to Italy for more than 25 years and Cortona is my heart of hearts. Many of the people in her book are people that I personally know in Cortona. While some may criticize Charlotte's book, I applaud her for not wallowing in her divorce woes, instead she made a new life for herself.
 
No, no , no. NO!  Feb 19, 2008
I could not finish it. My wife could, and told me that I was right not to.

This book prompts several questions.

1. Did the author actually live in Cortona, or just read all of the other books?
2. Don't vanity publishers have spell checkers?
3. Did anybody proof the galleys of this book? Firenze (Florence) is spelled correctly, then incorrectly, IN THE SAME SENTENCE!
4. Will this site refund my money?
5. Is this woman the model for Belinda Smith in Tuscany for Beginners?
6. Does the Portuguese government know that she's going there next?

We are lucky enough to know what it's like to spend time in southern Tuscany. This author doesn't (or didn't do the time)

I have great respect for writers; the blank page is an awesome adversary. To the list of Dario Castagno, Frances Mayes, Ferenc Mate, and Marlena Di Blasi, add Isabella Dusi, Tim Parks, Henry James and Goethe. But not this author.

 
Yawn...  Dec 3, 2007
Between misspelled words and losing me fairly quickly into the read I still dream of spending a year in Bella Italia.
