3 Stars: Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter
After pausing in this novel for a looooooong time I finally spent some evenings and finished her up! It is a very visually pleasurable read with great imagery that you can imagine as you read. You fall in and out of love with the characters as the story weaves on.
A nice light read (one that shouldn't take months) :) and great for book club! I found some fun Italian treats to taste on for this time around. Enjoy!
Amazon: Hailed by critics and loved by readers of literary and historical fiction, Beautiful Ruins is the story of an almost-love affair that begins on the Italian coast in 1962...and is rekindled in Hollywood fifty years later.
