Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Le due protagoniste di questo romanzo di 160 pagine sono Maria,la bambina scelta come figlia da una vecchia vedova e la figura emblematica di Tzia Bonaria, l'anziana madre adottiva,sarta in un paesino della Sardegna degli anni 50, l'accabadora del titolo che oltre a essere sarta, aiuta quelli che vogliono mettere fine a sofferenze senza speranza e a morire con dignità.
È un racconto duro,insolito,intenso e avvincente ,la scrittura è piacevole e scorrevole, è un libro che si legge d'un fiato ma che riesce a farci riflettere su molte cose. È una storia di rapporto madre-figlia,di vecchiaia,di eutanasia, di pietà umana,...
Mi è piaciuto molto benché mi senta assai distante da questa società sarda e dalle loro usanze e tradizioni misteriose. È un storia molto commovente però perde forse un po' della sua intensità durante Il soggiorno di Maria 'sul continente' a Torino . Non son sicuro di capire il legame con la storia principale. Comunque, è un libro da leggere.

....che mi ha fatto tornare la voglia di leggere persa da un po'. Un linguaggio schietto e affascinante, una storia sarda.

Una lettura piacevole e interessante con la quale riscoprire il proprio passato e le proprie abitudini familiari e scoprire di non essere mai stati i soli.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful story 8 Feb. 2014
By GUIDO PETER - Published on Amazon.com
Format: MP3 CD Verified Purchase
As a non native Italian speaker I am reading this book while listening to the author simultaneously.
This way the enjoyment of this moving literature becomes even more intense
2.0 out of 5 stars deludente 21 Mar. 2014
By true - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Mi aspettavo di più da questo libro, la storia in sé potrebbe essere molto interessante, con la misteriosa figura dell’accabadora e tutto il turbine di sentimenti che la circonda. Il tutto è trattato, però, in maniera troppo criptica, mi sarebbe piaciuta più introspezione nella vita interiore dei personaggi. Quando il libro finisce, resta la delusione per le aspettative disattese e per una storia interessante non raccontata al pieno delle sue potenzialità.
