For those who like to listen, there’s an audio version here. It’s probably abridged, I couldn’t say as I haven’t listened to it.
If the original’s beyond your current level in Italian, why not buy our, very short and simplified, ‘easy reader’ ebook, which also has audio. Click here to view it in our online shop. Please download and read/listen to the free sample chapter before you buy the full version – that way you’ll know that ours is a fraction of the length of the original, which is, of course, absolutely deliberate.
Original or ‘easy reader’, the fun of a book club lies in being able to share your progress with other people, rather than reading alone.
