Comparisons are sometimes considered odious but, in my mind, The Leopard really is better than any other novel I have read. Lampedusa's prose is so rich, folding layers upon layers of meaning so beautifully, each sentence is as exquisite and complex as a poem by Shelley. If the description of the Prince's dying thoughts doesn't bring you to tears, I don't know what will.

The Leopard is short but dense and perhaps best read slowly, almost like a poem. It is Lampedusa's only noteworthy literary creation but I can imagine he put a lifetime of thought into it. I am amazed it isn't more widely mentioned, and thankful that I chanced upon it while browsing Amazon reviews.

If you appreciate The Leopard and haven't read Joyce Carey's The Horse's Mouth, I have a hunch you should put that onto your reading list. It too has beautifully rich prose.

Complicated, and hard to get into at first but worth the effort of continuing to read.. Brings all the turbulent history of Scicily to life.
