Wanting to learn about all things Italian was the reason I picked this book I started it as an audio book But even as a listen while being a prisoner on the highway I had to stop after the first CD Her out of touch with reality pinings about her problems encountered when buying a home in Italy who in the world can afford this in the first place grated Hearing that one of the primary joys of her Italy travels was buying shoes was a major clue that this was not a book for me Then when she mentions sitting out at her new home and hearing the WHIRR of an owl flying close overhead I knew I wanted to spend no time in her description of Italy Owls are silent You DO NOT hear the whirr of this bird of prey s wings If she is making up something this simple what else is fantasy I was hoping to learn about Italy not hear her interpretation of what Italy should be So I ejected the disk and put the book away Silence won out over a pampered middle aged woman s whimsical ramblings

File under Lifestyle Porn I need to preface this by saying that had this book been anything less than a monster success I wouldn t trash it But for the life of me I can t understand why it s so popular What if she had written about remodeling a house in North Dakota Would that be interesting Of course not so why are the tedious details of doing the same in Italy any different This book has about as much to do with Italy as it does with North Dakota The movie is even worse if that is possibleI had some friends come to visit me here in Spain and one of them was reading this book I had read it before and thought very little of it As I am now in the middle of editing my own travel book about Spain I practically yanked this away from them to reread I have to say that my first impression of Under the Tuscan Sun was accurate As I edit my book about life in Spain I am a little worried about what I feel to be a lack of structure and focus in what I have written After rereading this book my work seems like a textbook example of structure She just seems to comment randomly about her rather privileged life in Italy This book should serve as how not to write It s truly ghastly writing at every step without a hint of insight to be found anywhereThis thing is like The Da Vinci Code of travel memoirs or whatever the hell you want to call it She is not as clumsy a writer as Dan Brown I refer to the immense popularity of this book I just don t get it I just don t see why it is that we all have to be reading the same book I suppose that this is how the publishing industry works They would much rather force one book down our collective throats than to print and market a series of books better suited for a range of tastes I guess they find this sort of book to be inoffensive enough to cover a wide range of readers who are looking for a book about living in Italy A interesting take on this subject would be a lot riskier Just an anecdotal observation on my part but in travel memoirs when writers don t speak the local language very well they litter their writing in English with foreign words The only time you should use a foreign word is when there is no English euivalent and even then only sparingly I d wager that her Italian is pretty lousy For me this book is creative writing gone bad and isn t all creative writing just writing gone bad If you removed all of the adjectives and adverbs the book would be about ten pages longI never felt like reading of this no matter where I was in the narrative As far as the premise to the book I really couldn t care less about some prosperous couple s work they are doing on an Italian country estate I don t know why this sort of story is so appealing to American readers lifestyleporn as I mentionedAll of the home improvement narrative had little or nothing to do with Italy One of the most important things to learn about life in Europe is how their cities work at least this is one of the most important things that I ve learned in my years in Spain A country house is for locals who are fed up with life in the city It will take me many years to reach this stage of assimilation Being isolated on your Italian country estate doesn t have much to do with Italy She probably went weeks without ever speaking to an Italian that wasn t among her service employees Every noun is propped up by a adjective as if nothing is able to stand on its own The Italians in the book come across as mere stereotypes I m surprised I didn t read about Guiseppe the old organ grinder with his monkey For a woman who has spent a lot of time in the country she has precious few insights about what life is like in that country other than her rather untraditional versions of Italian recipes On the back cover of the book they say that the author is a gourmet cook The first thing that came to my mind was that she may have ualified as a gourmet cook in America back when the book was first published but among the Italians she probably rates somewhere in the bottom middle of household hash slingers From her recipes I didn t get the impression that she was creating any miracles in the kitchen This isn t trying to take anything away from her skills it s just that in Mediterranean countries the bar for culinary prowess has been raised rather high Like being a distance runner in Kenya to be considered an above average cook in this region of the world you have to be truly remarkable Judging by the heavenly cooking smells wafting into the stairwell of my small building in Valencia it seems that really good cooks aren t exactly a rare commodityI suppose people are in love with the idea of moving to a country estate in Tuscany and nothing else really matters I just couldn t give a shit about her petty bourgeois issues with restoring a country home For me it s just a load of really uninteresting gibberish like someone recounting a dream The author revealed few truly insightful observations about Italy or Italian life I doubt that she learned much Italian in all of her time spent there As she is a university writing professor she writes in the clunky college professor manner that has shaped and destroyed so much American writing This just seems like it appeals to the fanny pack wearing crowd of international travel the folks who read those awful yuppie travel magazines keep their cash in a money belt and see travel as nothing than a shopping opportunity I d like to set the author of this book up on a blind date with the guy who wrote the eually awful A Year in ProvenceI just noticed that this same author has a follow up book to Under the Tuscan Sun with the sub heading Journeys of a Passionate Traveler I think I need to throw up a little bit First of all you can t call something a journey if you use a credit card Secondly what the hell is a passionate traveler Is that like when they do a porno movie on a desert island or you have sex in the bathroom of a train It s like those cooking shows for people who love to eat Are there people who don t like to eat A passionate traveler I just couldn t get past the title of this book to find out what she is talking about I seriously doubt that she has written a single thing of interest before Under the Tuscan Sun came out even though she taught creative writing Has anyone who teaches creative writing ever written anything interesting Undeclared remodeling a house in North Dakota Would that be interesting Of course not so why are the tedious details of doing the same in Italy any different This book has about
