Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon. I read it in Italian because I December 23, - Published on Amazon. Verified Purchase. We discussed this book in my book club. Everyone liked it. I read it in Italian because I continue to study Italian. My present textbook is a biography of Lorenzo Da Ponte, which I look forward to very much.

The book is more oblique than the film of the same name. There are some ambiguities in the novel that are made explicit in the film. It is a difficult era and a difficult topic for an American to fully appreciate and perceive its subtleties and nuances. November 7, - Published on Amazon.

Great book. Fascinating holocaust story beautiful writing. The book is in the original Italian but the translation exists. August 13, - Published on Amazon. Powerful and poignant work of art. Book is not. December 13, - Published on Amazon. Okay, I had to read this for my Italian class, so I was a bit biased against it in the first place.

Also, at my school, you're supposed to have an extra semester more of Italian before you read this, but due to extraneous issues i. So, that definitely could affect my opinion. All that being said, no one in my class liked this book. We all vehemently abhorred it. The only thing we all liked was the ending, and that's not being flippant or sarcastic.

The ending actually makes the book better. I would be giving it one star, but I bought it on Kindle and the app makes it so easy to look-up words that I haven't learned. It's a great way to read a book in a language that you're learning! Go to Amazon. Discover the best of shopping and entertainment with Amazon Prime.

The Garden of the Finzi-Contini (Il Giardino Dei Finzi-Contini)

It chronicles the relationships between the narrator and the children of the Finzi-Contini family from the rise of Benito Mussolini until the start of World War II. The Garden of the Finzi-Continis is considered the best of the series of novels that Bassani produced about the lives of Italian Jews in the northern Italian city of Ferrara. Although the novel focuses on the relationships between the major characters, the shadow of creeping Italian fascism , especially the racial laws that restricted Jews' participation in Italian society, looms over all the novel's events. According to Bassani, one hundred and eighty-three Jews living in Ferrara were deported to German concentration camps , predominantly under the puppet Italian Social Republic in The novel opens with a brief prologue set in in which the narrator, an Italian Jew , describes a visit to the Ferrara cemetery where the Finzi-Contini family mausoleum stands, empty in all but two slots: a young child, Guido, who died of illness before the narrator was born; and Alberto, the son of the Finzi-Continis and a friend of the narrator's, who died of lymphogranulomatosis Hodgkin's disease before the mass deportation that sent the remainder of the family to a concentration camp in Germany.
