I reuested this novel because Donna Leon is one of my mum’s favorite writers She’s a crime novels addict and I remember her talking to me about this series a couple of times Her love for the author made me curios and I jumped at the occasion to read the latest release the 26th Installment in the Commissario Brunetti series I was a bit worried that I will have some problems understanding the personal life of the main characters since I did not read the previous novels and I was partially right Donna Leon the author of the series of novels that have as main character Guido Brunetti a detective at the Police Headuarters in Venice is an American of Irish and Spanish origins who’s lived in Venice for over 30 years From the way she writes we see that she is in love with the beauty and uniueness of Venice and the nearby islands but also sees its darker side environmental damage pollution crime corruption These latter issues are the subject of her newest novelFollowing an uncontrolled fit during an interrogation a case of corruption in the high society of Venice Brunetti realizes he needs a break and he gets nearly three weeks away from the office to recover His wife Paula sends him to the villa of a rich aunt on the secluded island Sant Erasmo to relax and read Here he spent the days in the companionship of David Casati the caretaker of the villa and an old friend of Brunetti' father The two became friends and David helpes Brunetti to restart rowing to rediscover the beauty of the lagoon and initiates him into the life of bees which unfortunately for some unknown reason perished from the island After a storm David Casati disappears and Brunetti interrupts his vacation and starts his own investigation to discover the truth about the disappearance and after the discovery of the corpse about the death of David CasatiAbout a third of the book covers the relationship between Brunetti and David Casati the way they spend their time together in nature Only later the conflict is triggered and the novel becomes a detective story I liked the book and the style in which it was written but the beginning was a bit boring I discussed with my mum and she told me that her other novels are action packed so I will probably read other Donna Leon books In order to have a better reading experience I should have started with the first books in the series to better understand Brunetti as a character his spiritual conflicts the other people from his life and circumstances that made him react like this at the beginning of the book I would not recommend to start with this novel if you never read anything by Donna Leon before it is suitable for readers that already know and love these charactersI received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

And his city has been an enduring figure but in Earthly Remains Brunetti’s endurance is tested than ever before During an interrogation Brunetti acts rashly doing something he uickly comes to regret and in the fallout he realizes that he needs a breakGranted leave from the uestura Brunetti’s wife Paola ships him off to a villa owned by a wealthy relative on Sant’Erasmo one of the l. It's so welcome to be on the laguna with Guido for so many days Rowing than fishing but still an experience For me this series latest #26 was a 35 star but I rounded it up for the strong Guido central core At times other characters crowd the scene but this one was nearly entirely Guido A long married man having a respite under rather contradictory and strange conditions but still a delicious spell of being in a outside isle on the peaks of the laguna villa Singular and peaceful Or not Paola and Elettra have their conversations but this one was in great majority about the men of work decades past and now And also how that time past of industry has fall outs not only for those visibly afflicted Some of the uotes in this one were subtle and yet central Brunetti and Venetian calle prone pithyThey sat in silence for a moment three Venetians relatives at the wake of a city that had been an empire and was now selling off the coffee spoons to try to pay the heating hill As I have seen Chicago in the last 7 decades I SO understand that uoteBut the sense of the dialect and the people on the small out islands and marsh barriers is outstanding in this one The rest of it especially in the Scarpa or Patta sense not nearly as good as some other Brunetti Foa steers us a few times but I missed him tooThe Brunetti children are clearly off stage here as well Raffi only getting one dinner conversation about his friend's birthday gift And Chiara was off at the Lido I miss the kids being in it They put another whole Italian level on it IMHO Opens the door beyond the stodginess of most of the old folk And also Leon puts than the average religious belief scoffing into this one although she always gets at least a couple minor mocks in there within every novel in this series One time for a uip in parallel to a Rosary recital which was especially obnoxious to me And when people are crazed with grief she doesn't omit a savage fling at their weird idea that any prayer could be meaningful Really such cheap shots It's way beyond her writing ability to do these constantly they are so banal compared to her literary comparisons or uips re Paola the most classically erudite Not the very best of the series but far from the worst And also holds a departure in that there are many solitary Guido perceptions and moment to moment sensibilities than in the norm of the series A good thing for meEnjoyAlmost forgot There was a priceless couple of paragraphs in here that describe Paola and Guido negotiating a strident walk over the bridge to get home one night in the middle of July It's cheek to jowl tourists and no one will move and all are standing in depth seeing views That one was EXCELLENT 6 star I've done that in huge crowds during ticker tape parade folly etc you look at the feet and MOVE Never look up pause or parry sideways to duck around or you will be lost
