Will not keep you awake at night

I found that the story itself was quite interesting, but found the narration and the writing rather simplified and not very sophisticated for my taste for such an historical topic such as Venice, Murano and the Doges palace. For me, the male narrators mild English regional accent, modern style and tone struck me as slightly bizarre, bearing in mind that he was talking about Italians in the 1500's, although the style in which the novel is written partially forced this I think. He does put on an Italian accent for the characterizations. Very light listening, will not keep you awake at night.

Average at best

a passable novel but the music and male narrator are very irritating. I wouldn't recommend it.
