read & download Falling in Love Donna Leon â 8 download Falling in Love summary ´ 108 Unetti and his wife Paola attend an early performance and Flavia receives a standing ovation Back in her dressing room she finds bouuets of yellow roses too many roses Every surface of the room is covered with them An anonymous fan has been showering Flavia with these beautiful gifts in London St Petersburg Amsterdam and now Venice but she no longer feels flattered A few nights later invite. Everyone in this book is tired They actually say they are tired and I believe them so was I after reading this last sad entry in Donna Leon s once marvelous Guido Brunetti series Venice is dying overrun by tourists and immigrants from points south Leon s dream world that gave power to a few honest souls with courage a sense of justice and devotion to family a special city great food and a handful of friends is dead Soprano Flavia Petrelli is back for an encore performance in Tosca in Venice but the magic is gone Death at La Fenice and Acua Alta both featuring Flavia had suspense brilliant characters and a rich sense of place But Flavia is almost unrecognizable and all of the elements that made those books special are missing in this phone it in seuel The jacket blurb noted that Leon now divides her time between Venice and Switzerland I m guessing that she spends most of her time in her Swiss enclave The sense of furious righteousness that gave her Brunetti novels their strength has succumbed to old age and disillusionment I sort of liked the opera bits but the plot was thin and the denouement so predictable that I guessed it half way though It s sad to see an author force herself to write when her heart is no longer in it
