    I chose Casanova in Bolzano simply because I had heard great things about the author Sándor Márai and this was the only one of the author’s books I could get as an audiobook To top it off the narrator is the well known Simon Prebble so what could I lose Let me say right off that the narration was good even if I could not hear

    I thought this author's Embers was great novel And Casanova in Bolzano is similar in plot there are three characters involved in a romantic triangle But that's where the similarities stop Where Embers was tightly and beautifully written without a word wasted Casanova feels at least twice too long Perhaps if I had read Casanova first it would have been a different experience Anyway I strongly recommend the stun

A's escape from a Venetian prison and his fateful encounter with a woman in Bolzano who finally defea At first I found it difficult to get into this novel The steam of conscious style of the narrative made it somewhat hard to follow at the start but soon I adapted to the rhythm of the book and after that I truly loved it and appreciated the beauty of the writing I found it to be an engaging story full of depth meaning and truth I do not know a great deal about Casanova beyond his notorious reputation as the great womanizer and seducer but Marai provides a much human portrayal of Casanova Most often he is portrayed as this young dashing arrogant hero or anti hero In Casanova in Bolzano he is a man who is full of flaws doubts and internal struggles We are introduced to him later in life as a man in his 40s who is in truth not particularly handsome and who is bitter about the reputation he has accumulated and the way in which men and women gawk at him and whisper about him wherever he goes He is also lonely because of his persistent inability to truly find the woman with whom he can love whom he can live a fulfilling and satisfying life with He is fated to be restless unhappy and never content for the constant fear that he will not truly live his life to the fullest extent He believes himself to be a writer and yet he cannot write for he fears to write would mean that he was not truly living and that one cannot truly write until indeed they have lived life It is a beautiful and in someways tragic story

Casanova in Bolzano is a riveting novel written within the framework of historical reality of Casanov I chose Casanova in Bolzano simply because I had heard great things about the author S ndor M rai and this was the only one of the author s books I could get as an audiobook To top it off the narrator is the well known Simon Prebble so what could I lose Let me say right off that the narration was good even if I could not hear from the intonation which character was speaking There are never ending monologues I have warned you What is a bit strange is that there are extremely few conversations between characters Instead one character talks and talks and talks with another character listening I did get exasperated a few times after listening to one person jabber they absolutely NEVER got to the point I think I listened to one solilouy for almost an hour and just had to give up I was so exasperated I will say this these long drawn out monologues made the character s personality sparkling clear You learn about people through what they say than what they do I thoroughly admired the author s ability to draw a character through their speech even if I did get exasperated You learn about the personalities of three very different people One is the powerful Duke of Palma the other his wife the Duchess Francesca and the last is Giacomo Casanova who has escaped from a Venetian prison and is now in Bolzanoan Italian town near the border of Austria The year is 1756 The theme of the book is love The Duke loves his wife The wife loves Giacomo but who does Giacomo love Anybody Anyone He is a gambler a seducer a swindler a trickster The important uestion is though Is he capable of love Giacomo and the Duke make a deal But who will win The Duke Casanova The Duchess Does anybody win What you think about is the different loves portrayed and which and who is the real lover This is what this book is about Butthe end concludes in a way that I find all wrong view spoiler It ends with Giacomo realizing he does love Francesca but he keeps his deal with the Duke and leaves forever I don t see Casanova has being capable of love Neither would Casanova keep his word hide spoiler
