A fine piece of writing and a satisfying end to the trilogy,
This review is from: Via Delle Oche (Europa Editions) (Paperback)
Via Delle Oche is a short book (133 pages), but unlike the previous two in the trilogy, I didn't feel the story was so under-developed, although it could have benefited from some fleshing out in places. De Luca is a complex, conflicted character and the story captures the atmosphere, politics and corruption of a country in turmoil. I am particularly taken with Lucarelli's storytelling which focuses on what the characters say and do, with little thick description or the use of metaphors or similes. Rather than being dull and lifeless, Lucarelli's prose is rich and the story races along. A fine piece of writing and a satisfying end to the trilogy.
