Finding Positano: book review
I have just spent the last day reading a new book I found by chance on Amazon. Imagine reading a novel that is based in the small town that you live in. A love story, based here in Positano that made me read faster than I wanted to, made me laugh, made me wonder and made me shout at it at certain points!
It was easy to read, the detail was good and the storyline was very fitting for lots of single women who travel here. There were a few points where I got frustrated and shouted at the book due to something that didn't exist (like the view of Mulini which you definately cannot see from the terrace of the Hotel Vittoria) or one phrase in Italian that was so wrong and surely could have been checked and corrected by someone, and the spelling of a name...Geno, surely should have been Gino?
All in all I admired the principal character's amazzing stamina when it came to drinking wine...four glasses before dinner and after a long flight? Wow!
The best thing of all is that the author (who I am not convinced is a man) has set up a website with a photo gallery of all the places mentioned in the book, so if you haven't been to visit Pos you can go online and check out where the action happened!
The book is only available to download for now for kindle devices (iphone/ipod included) or using a desktop app. Via Amazon
