A very bad translation!!
on 24 March 2016
A very disappointing book. I have read all the other ones and liked them, but I suspect that the publishers Little, Brown were in a tremendous hurry for the translation (money, money, money) of this one, as the book has a lot of typing errors, inaccuracies, etc. I just read some pages in the original book in Italian and it is a completely different book.
Also the whole storyline is very vague, whereas in the Italian version some facts are immediately made clear. 6 Murders have been committed, in the end 3 murders are solved, the other 3 remain a mystery (haha). Furthermore I advise you to read The Black Rose of Florence first for better understanding this book, if you decide to buy this very bad English version.
Again, the translation is appalling and very incomplete: some 370 pages against 465 pages in the Italian book. Shame on the publishers Little, Brown.
