How time flies. I reviewed this over 10 years ago…

If on a Winter's Night a TravellerIf on a Winter’s Night a Traveller by Italo Calvino
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Every now and then I read something that is not my “normal” choice, to keep things interesting. Sometimes it works and I find something that I really enjoy, other times it does not work at all. This is my worst choice for a long time. I was skimming pages at the end of the first chapter already. The first page sounded really good, but somehow this book never got off the ground for me. Intriguing idea, but there just seemed to be no point to the narrative. Unless it was to show us how smart and witty the author is.
