This is a strange request, but someone put a sticker on page in the Einaudi pocketbook and because of it some text got blocked. That’s seven missing lines and I’d really apreciate it.

Lists with This Book. Jul 22, Io? In perfetta sintonia, direi, con il film di Alex Infascelli, emozionante nelle atmosfere, ma carente di forza espressiva e interpretato in modo evanescente. This was not a good book. The only witness is a This was not a good book.

The only witness is a blind man, Simone, who eavesdrops on the city with scanners. Translated from the Italian, that might explain some of the terrible sentence structures and pointless lines, but not all of them. Bologna, la grassa e l’inumana… un tentativo interessante, quello di Lucarelli, raccontare Bologna anzi, la megalopoli che va da Rimini a Parma utilizzando le cifre della narrazione hard-boiled e noir di grande tradizione americana – anche se con qualche deviazione verso il pulp nostrano.

Dec 16, Voss rated it it was amazing. Splendida protagonista, bella storia. Comunque ha qualche pregio. Jul 14, Ametista rated it really liked it Shelves: I gialli non mi sono mai piaciuti, Almost blue non lo sembra nemmeno. E’ un libro fatto di sensazioni, proprio come piace a me, e colori che raschiano, scivolano, riempiono. Sep 24, Yvann S rated it liked it. A serial killer is terrorising the people of Bologna and rookie Detective Inspector Grazia Negro is determined to solve the case.

She only has one witness who can identify the killer — and he is blind. Together Simone and Negro are the only people able to stop him. I seem to be having a bout of the DNFs at the moment. Maybe I am just getting more ruthless with my reading. Grazia is a great lead investigator although why why why the author chose to make her pre-menstrual is beyond me, did he want to ramp up the blood quotient even further?

What made me put this book down was the incredibly short chapters, switching back and forth from Grazia to the killer to Simone. Anyway it was too jumpy and I got fed up. I have to say that I was disappointed by this book. It started so well, grabbing and pulling me in but, so suddenly, it shifted track and lost its focus.

Lucarelli can write so beautifully, his ability to describe something is wonderful, and he understands drama, but here, in “Almost Blue” I feel he’s tried to be too clever, too bloody and too melodramatic. At times Lucarelli even tries to make the city, Bologna, acquire reality but he doesn’t focus and fails to place us there in that fascinating place.

I liked some of the wonderful writing but, in the end, I didn’t like the book. Mar 03, Steve rated it really liked it. A novella at only pages that is a real page turner. Its brevity perhaps does not allow for as much character development and background as would be ideal. There are some interesting insights into the worlds of the mentally ill, the blind, as well as being a woman and living in a misogynistic culture and profession.

And any book that makes so much reference to A novella at only pages that is a real page turner.


It would have been nice if the book were another fifty pages or so to provide some meaningful background or better context to the story. Sep 28, Giulia rated it it was ok. I didn’t like it so much. The story could boue really interesting: The problem was that licarelli didn’t like the way in which it was written: This book must I didn’t like it so much.

This book must probably be read at least twice to be well understood, and i’ll probably do in a future This was a little too creepy for me. By that I mean a little too much blood and gore and weirdness. Did not like the protaganist.

And the almoet seems waaayyyy to preoccupied with a woman having her period. It was an overdescribed thread throughout the book. I wanted to like this book, I really did. But lordy, it was so bad. I only give it two stars because I was intrigued enough to finish it. Nov 05, Alessandro rated it it was amazing.

You’ll want to walk around Bologna by night to taste all the emotions in the book. Sep 04, Caterina Faggioli rated it it was amazing. Aug 19, GythaOgg rated it it was amazing.
