    1. Lepa priča o Enriku Karuzu Upoznala sam autorku tokom sajma u Torontu davne 2005. jer sam želela da je dovedem na sajam u Beograd Popile smo kafu, popričale i zaključila sam da nema svrhe dovoditi je u Beograd jer je toliko stidljiva i povučena osoba da bi novinarima bilo teško da iz nje izvuku neku reč a i čitaoci Pa smo odustali od te idejeKanađani generalno imaju divnu književnost i autore Nešto između ozbiljne lepe književnosti i visokokvalitetne komercijale koja to baš i nije




    2. Meh. A few beautiful lines, and certainly a story with potential, but the author's attempts to compose high art using salacious plot details ultimately come across as flat.


    3. If it weren't for the fact that I have an EXTREMELY hard time putting a book down halfway through and walking away, I'd have never finished this one. It is relatively short yet it took me a good 8 weeks to read it. Why? Because I was just not enthused about picking it up and reading it. I'd go to a magazine, the paper, or the internet before choosing to continue slogging through this little novel. I wanted to like it, I truly did. The concept is excellent. But I hated Caruso and his self-importa [...]


    4. I picked this book up at a crown book store with a bunch of others, this one didn't strike me as moving as I was hoping for so I set it aside for my last read of the bunch. It wasn't a long book full of sugar coating. It got right to the center of the story but without such climax you would expect. The novel is based on true individuals of the opera world as they struggle to succeed the main love interest being Enrico Crusoe the famed opera tenor. I loved the setting of the novel as well. It is [...]


    5. The first half of this book proves that excessive talent does not keep people from being stupid. Caruso and the two soprano sisters (Ada and Rina) were idiots--talented divas, yes, but selfish and thoughtless, letting their actions extend their hurt and damage beyond their own lives. I had no sympathy for their "love" or how those desires played out. The second half of the book provided some breath of relief in the figure of Dorothy, but even she couldn't salvage the mess Caruso had made with hi [...]


    6. Sadly, this is a book that was written beautifully, but with no character that I could connect with on any level. All of them were emotionally abusive. Some were the completely selfish and damaged artists, and others were the martyrs. I would love to read this author's poetry because the beautiful word play is the only thing that kept me till the end.


    7. This was perhaps one of the most beautiful love stories I've read from an author of this century. A Victorian feel to the entire book, I found myself enthralled throughout. I'd love to pick it up again and just re-read it in a day, as it was a lovely book. Di Michele did a wonderful job of weaving emotions with secrecy, and finding the inner human even amongst super stars. Brilliant book.






    8. A fictional account based on two of the three great loves in Caruso's life. The stories give a fascinating look into one of opera's legends.


    9. Captivating novel. Rather interesting plot line and wonderful characterization. Again, it's one of those novels that my words wouldn't do it justice.


    10. An interesting book once you get into it. I didn't know which sister to root for and in the end they both lost.
