5.0 out of 5 stars Seasons in the city: enjoy, feel and think
Probably no one will claim this book by Italo Calvino, but for me it is one of his best. It may be considered a book for children and also a deep and genius essay. All storys that happen to Marcovaldo, the protagonist, are amazingly funny and serious, like a carnival made in the middle of a war. Pure poetry, fantasy and realism.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring
An easy reader, maybe but I found it quite difficult as a 'learner'. It is also really boring. I probably won't bother to struggle through it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Set of good quality short stories, 20 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Each of the stories I have read were written with style though the Italian used was not easy to read. I am finding the book particularly useful because it allows me to read short self contained stories.
