I think that the novelty of Ricciardi's special curse has worn off The Looking Glass - Soul Shock Remedy - Fish Eye Lens (CD the author, and maybe for his readers as well. More than in any of the previous novels, "The Deed" is represented as madness, rather than as a supernatural curse or gift.
And unlike all the previous novels, "The Deed" plays no role in the solution of the murder mystery. In part that is because the murder itself took place months before Ricciardi begins his This is far from the best novel in the Commissario Ricciardi series.
In part that is because the murder itself took place months before Ricciardi begins his investigation. But that fact, of course, is a choice by the author, and I think represents his withdrawl from the core concept. Regular readers of the series will recall that Ricciardi's tata Rosa died in the previous novel, leaving Ricciardi even more alone than before. He is experiencing an unbearable depth of grief, and is withdrawing even further into his own loneliness. In part because of this he makes a definitive break with Livia, the beautiful, wealthy, and connected woman who has been pursuing Ricciardi for months.
His break from her leads to consequences that he could not possibly have foreseen. And he is still devastated by his discovery in the previous novel that Enrica, the neighbor woman that he has somehow fallen in love with, from afar, has a new suitor - one that she seems to have accepted. I see this novel as a transition to what, I predict, will be the final novel in the series.
Ricciardi in Glass Souls has reached a crisis, and the resolution of that crisis will determine the course of the rest of his life. We are given hints as to how the crisis will resolve, but nothing definitive. I look forward to the next novel in the series.

Un'indagine su un caso ormai "freddo", avvenuto e presto archiviato 4 mesi prima, sollecitata dalla bella e algida contessa di Roccaspina.
Fiacco Album) sue divagazioni e nel suo permettere fin dall'inizio al lettore di precedere il commissario nella risoluzione del "mistero". Non sarebbe meglio romanzo rosa con il morto? La settima e poi dalla prima alla sesta e ora l'ottava. De Giovanni mi piace come scrittore.
Di migliorarsi, intendo. Bellissima la canzone che sorregge la trama e la spiega in tanti modi diversi, lacerante la sofferenza profonda di Ricciardi per la sua Rosa, splendida la figura di Nelide che si sta costruendo. Il Fatto, che per la prima volta non si manifesta se non in circostanze slegate dal delitto, l'introduzione di Bianca che scompiglia parecchio le carte, l'accenno alla situazione sociale e politica dell'Italia, l'Amore in tante sfaccettature diverse e tante altre cose Chi lo leggesse considerandolo solo un noir, rimarrebbe deluso, chi lo leggesse considerandolo solo un romanzo sentimentale, resterebbe deluso.
An interesting style of developing a solution to a crime that has already been "solved". There's the inevitable flash of brilliance that lies in the genius of the detective's ability to reconstruct the facts into different scenarios outside of the "normal" ones. Overall, I liked the interjection of the musical interludes between the young musician and the old musician with the theme of conveying story within the music,; i.
The characters are rich and interesting when placed in Italy of the 's rise of Fascism. Even the female characters, constrained by the culture of the time are strong and complex. There's subtle interplay of the fading aristocracy, peasantry, bourgoisie, and professional people.
Also, de Giovanni explores the complicated threads of cultural bias, homosexuality, and mating conventions. A complicated, rich and beautiful story that is also a fine mystery.
I look forward to reading more of de Giovanni's books about Commissario Ricciardi and visiting Naples in their pages. Forse sono condizionato da altre recensioni che si lamentano di questo aspetto ma credo che sia quasi inevitabile.
Apr 29, Emily rated it liked it. This is a series best read in order and I loved each prior entry. This one was a disappointment. I was sad that the theme of Commissaro Riccardi's visions of the the suddenly dead, who linger everywhere repeating their last words, was reduced to a suggestion he is mentally ill. I think it made this series unique. It was used as a way of understanding Riccardo's suffering and insight into suffering as well as his analysis of crime scenes.
I am not averse to long books but even a page Album) can This is a series best read in order and I loved each prior entry. I am not averse to long books but even a page book can be too long and this page book should have been cut. A lot. I still love the characters, including the character of the city, Naples. The story itself was a fine concept. A penniless due to gambling aristocrat confesses to murder of a loan shark.
His whose wife, in name only, insists he is innocent. She convinces the Commissaro and his partner Brigadier Maione to take a second look in an unauthorized side investigation. The tying together of the various love stories evolving in the series was important. It just needed an editor's pen and the return of the visions. Prima opera di Maurizio De Giovanni che leggo. L'autore ci descrive e presenta un commissario molto solitario e riflessivo, e forse anche per questo all'inizio non riuscivo ad entrare nella sua mente e nella storia.
Col tempo mi sono non dico aff Prima opera di Maurizio De Giovanni che leggo. De Giovanni scrive bene e si vede. Di solito preferisco iniziare dal primo. Apr 03, Anda D. Kruetani rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites. This book was gifted to me and as always I was reluctant to read something I had not chosen for myself.
But then as the pages passed one by one, I found myself falling more and more in love with the way the book was written and I had so many sentences underlined and noted, which is always a good sign with a reader such as myself. I especially like the way love is treated in the book and represented in all its possible kinds.
It's safe to say that Maurizio de Giovanni has a new fan right about he This book was gifted to me and as always I was reluctant to read something I had not chosen for myself. It's safe to say that The Looking Glass - Soul Shock Remedy - Fish Eye Lens (CD de Giovanni has a new fan right about here and the book has earned its place as one of my all-time favorites.
Better than the previous one although again the interior monologues and the long scenes with the mandolin player are excessive, part of the operatic quality of these books, which, like opera, is sometimes over the top. The crime itself, which is evil, is quite artfully solved.
The subplot of the machinations of the fascist secret police to depose Ricciardi is chillingly well done, although his escape is again melodramatic and operatic. But for the love of god could Enrica and R go on a date now?
But for the love of god could Enrica and R go on a date now?? Il migliore episodio della serie dai tempi de Il senso del dolore. Questa serie ha ancora molto da dire. Oramai la trama che lega i personaggi ha preso il sopravvento sulla parte investigativa. Quest'ultima viene infatti portata avanti con stanchezza e risolta in maniera sbrigativa e grossolana. Gli eventi degli ultimi capitoli, oltre ad essere improbabili, aggiungono solo confusione.

Looking Glass was a one-hit wonder who struck gold with the fine, laid-back pop-rock tune "Brandy You're a Fine Girl. This is a decent retrospective with some surprisingly nice material, even if it's not as "hard" as the band believed more like late-career Poco. That said, there's no point in dissing "Brandy.
Looking Glass definitely deserves a closer look. This collection by collectables proves that Looking Glass deserved to be more than a one hit wonder.
Oh course we all now the song Brandy but virtually no one has ever heard anything else by them. I initially picked up this for the hit and was curious what their other music might sound like. I was pleasantly surprised with a fine selection of mellow rock. If you love early 70's music and want to hear something new and different I would suggest you give this disc a listen.
A fine selection of looking glass material in a bargain priced set that goes down like a glass of smooth brandy. Much more to this group than just their hits. Definitely worth a listen.
