This book is based not so much in Venice but out on the Venitian Laguna. I just really appreciate the detailed picture of the surroundings that Donna Leon creates. You can see the scene so clearly. I throughly enjoyed the book, although the subject she has written about is a pretty distressing one. It all seems to be centred around one character but as Guido Brunetti starts to ask questions about his new friend it becomes apparent that there is something more complex in his past.
I have listened to all the Brunetti books that Audible has and was so pleased to see that another had been released. Lovely to be whisked off to Venice and the Islands of the Lagoon again. Also to catch up with the characters that bring it all to life. A fantastic series of books. Highly recommend.

Where does Earthly Remains rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
As a light novel, it is well written and the narrator is familiar with the type of books that Donna Leon writes. I look forward to the next one.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Brunetti of course. He is wonderful and makes one wish that there were real policemen like him.
Have you listened to any of David Rintoul’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Yes. Always good.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Absolutely. A good story, nice background and excellent narration.
Any additional comments?

I enjoyed the story, the unusual setting and the message.
I was disappointed with the narration and didn't like the change in voices which sounded stilted and dated, surprising for such an experienced actor. I woul d have preferred a straight reading.
