I wanted to love this audiobook because I loved The Lady in the Palazzo and because I'm going to be in Sicily in a couple of months. But the whispered narration drove me crazy and I couldn't get beyond chapter one. My rating of the story is made up because I didn't actually listen to it, but I had to rate it in order to review the book. I would suggest to potential listeners to listen to the sample and see if they're comfortable with a quiet, breathy reading before they decide whether to purchase the book. Apparently some people are.

What would have made That Summer in Sicily better?
The author's voice is way too soft and melodramatic for my taste in a reader. It drove me crazy to the point I do not want to finish. Even with the volume all the way up on my car audio and it was still too quiet. I wish I could return this one. It is so bothersome that I cannot get into the story.
Would you ever listen to anything by Marlena de Blasi again?
