The City of Falling Angels by John Berendt
The City of Falling Angels

sherriberri, September 21, 2011

Plain and simple, this book encouraged me to visit Venice, and when I was able to set foot in that eternal city I was not disappointed.

Mr Berendt's description of the area and surrounding islands (including Murano & San Michele), his research and history & the true-to-life characters included in this story were so vivid, I could picture them in my mind's eye. Down to habitant's wrinkles, Carnivale costumes and canals, this is one book you should not overlook. Even if you're not planning to visit Venice, you will definitely be enchanted by 'City of Falling Angels.'

Highly recommended!
