I have been a huge fan of the Neapolitan Quartet. I am Sicilian and so much of those novels resonated deeply with me. I was anxiously awaiting this new novel and read it the moment I got my hands on it, finished it last night. I am left with a sense of an incomplete story. I wanted to care about these characters but just didn't, worse some of them were just clichés, I didn't want to know more about them. The book was just lukewarm, never really fleshing out. So it hurts me to say this but ultimately disappointing.
