Italian Ways has been one of the most enjoyable audiobooks I've listened to in a long time. It's not just the reading (which was excellent), but the wonderful insight into the Italian way of life.
This book is incredibly hard to describe and that's what makes it such an excellent listen. The author gives you a view of the Italian people through the perspective of a frequent rail-traveler. The book is a well-composed series of stories chronicling humorous, sweet, and frustrating events the author either participated in or witnessed while using the train system.
The stories couldn't be more enjoyable or vivid. Tim Parks ignites your imagination and builds the most incredible scenes of people interacting with one another. And, Ben Bartalone, the narrator, really delivers, as well.
I can't recommend this one highly enough.

What would have made Italian Ways better?
I think I expected more italian life and italian people in the story, but it was pretty much just about him figuring out the trains.....
What does Ben Bartolone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He has the voice of the teachers pet. It's annoying. A bit too cheery
