The Most Interesting Man in the World?
Lover. Cheat. Card sharp. Con artist. Prisoner. Actor. Politician. Military officer (with faked credentials). Freemason. Scapegoat. Astrologer. The most infamous womanizer to have ever lived. All of these labels and more have been used to describe Casanova.
Towards the end of his rather incredible life, Casanova wrote an equally incredible and voluminous memoir that has gone down in the annals of legend. This audiobook is essentially an expanded synopsis of that memoir. It offers very little outside of that tome in terms of research, but there is some clarification of certain points that I found useful. And to be fair, most Casanova scholars see little need to go beyond that memoir simply on account.
To that end, I got exactly what I expected and hoped for, which is to say I got the basic story and some great anecdotes of this character. I've decided I most definitely want to read his memoir for myself.
