    PDF By Its Cover PDF ê By Its PDF/EPUB ² Ö appomattox campaign.co cover mobile, By Its free, By Its Cover PDF/EPUBI like these books but I'm beginning to tire of Leon's increasing tendency to phone them in This one concerns the theft andor destruction of ancient priceless books and manuscripts a subject that should be close to my heart Brunetti's apparent ignorance of the subject and his skillful uestioning of those involved so he can make himself smart is handled well and gives the reader at least a smattering of knowledge But there's nothing deep to this one Leon presumes we all know all the background of the cast gives us very little motivation for anything or anybody offers some flip remarks about the in depth inbred crime rampant in modern day Venice offers enchanting descriptions of Venetian scenery throws in a few mentions of food the hallmark of previous volumes and comes to such an absolutely abrupt halt that I had to go and double check to make sure my download of the e galley hadn't been corrupted Sorta li

    PDF By Its Cover PDF ê By Its PDF/EPUB ² Ö appomattox campaign.co cover mobile, By Its free, By Its Cover PDF/EPUBPerhaps I'm simply tiring of Donna Leon's formula but I found this book to plod along in a too predictable fashion It has all the expected things of a Commissario Brunetti mystery including descriptions that make one see Venice through Brunetti's eyes His interactions with his family and the too clever Signorina Elettra along with his love of Venetian food and Italian history are just rehashes of things that have happened in every other book in the series In short there was simply nothing new to spark my interest or make me look forward to the next in the series

    PDF By Its Cover PDF ê By Its PDF/EPUB ² Ö appomattox campaign.co cover mobile, By Its free, By Its Cover PDF/EPUBIf Italy is the capital of the slow food movement then Donna Leon fits right in with her Brunetti series which takes place in Venice Like her other books this one opens slowly as the reader puts one piece of the puzzle in after another There are so many delicious asides such as nearly a whole page devoted to Brunetti's gray suit Then there are the domestic scenes with his wife Paola and their two children The book takes place in the spring This was for me very appropriate As Brunetti feels the warmth of the sun after a cold wet winter I could completely understand since we also had an exceptionally cold wet and VERY long winter this year

    PDF By Its Cover PDF ê By Its PDF/EPUB ² Ö appomattox campaign.co cover mobile, By Its free, By Its Cover PDF/EPUBI love the Commissario Brunetti stories I look forward to a new book the way children look forward to Christmas morning My expectations for Donna Leon are high so that's perhaps why I was disappointed here The book feels flimsy in comparison to the others in the series The characters are flat the story less developed and the ending well I won't give it away but I was left dissatisfied There were few references to food and rather than drooling over her lush descriptions of Paola's cooking there was little to imagine There is only one meal described in detail and Guido wasn't even allowed to enjoy it because he was so engaged in this case I'd rather wait a little longer for a story that measures up to Leon's usual high uality than read a story that leaves so much to be desired Sorry

    PDF By Its Cover PDF ê By Its PDF/EPUB ² Ö appomattox campaign.co cover mobile, By Its free, By Its Cover PDF/EPUBDonna Leon's love of books and literature has shone in her Inspector Brunetti mysteries especially through the character of Brunetti's wife Paola In By Its Cover books as objects are at the heart of the story's mysteryBecause this is a Brunetti story in which differences matter a distinction is made between books as art objects and the text contained on the pages of those objects For rich collectors the objects have value For the Brunettis who live a book strewn life in which volumes are left open and upside down snuggled into cushions of furniture and perhaps even dog eared books are far valuable for what they contain than for their appearance And because this is a Brunetti story perhaps this is a way to view people as wellBrunetti is called to a Venetian scholarly library where old and revered volumes reside Someone has been cutting out specific pages that are highly valued by collectors while other rare and costly volumes are missingSuspicion immediately falls on

They are great books and like it's predecessors By It's Cover does not disappointThe story takes us into the Biblioteca Merula a prestigious Venetian library Commissario Brunetti gets a call from the librarian that several books have been vandalized pages cut out of them The books are priceless historical books and the library is devastated at what's happened At first it seems like solving the mystery might not be hard; it seems like an American who has been working with the books must be responsible for the thefts But things get murkier when they discover that the American doesn't exist nor does he hold a position at a prestigious American university as his credentials had stated Who is this guy and why would he deface these books As the investigation continues and the
