He didn’t know that yet So he kidnaps her and it is obvious that they’re going to start fooling around and fall in love which is what happens The other characters are Joey an American relative of the don Sharon Joey’s girlfriend and Ray a disgraced Secret Service agent and Sharon’s husbandEarly on I could tell that these separate narratives were going to end up together and be awesome so I kept reading The reading was the hard part because Leonard put so many Italian street names and landmarks in his writing that by the time you reached the end of a paragraph you forgot what he was trying to say It’s like he wrote this specifically for American expatriates living in Rome Editors have a rule they like their writers to follow No info dumps It’s okay to talk about how old something is or some uniue aspect of a building as long as that building plays into the story or tells me something about a character Leonard clogged paragraphs with details that only contributed to a higher word count One particular sentence has the following points of interest Corso Vittoria Emaniele Pantheon Fontana del Moro and Piazza Navona And that was a short sentence There are hundreds like this so much that when trying to mentally follow someone’s route through the city I skipped ahead three paragraphs and didn’t miss a beat He acts like of a tour guide than a writer at points so much that I told my wife “I bet this guy used to live in Italy” A uick Google search told me I was correctThe constant listing of things continues with everything Leonard lists everything the character packs in his suitcase and everything each character eats drinks and wears Even if it’s not important to the story He describes the main character’s love interest Angela as looking like Manuela Arcuri Don’t know who she is? I don’t either probably because I don’t keep up with Italian soaps That reference would make sense if he was an Italian writer whose book was translated into English but instead it leaves the reader searching
