Really enjoyed this Adriana Trigianii book she is my new favorite author.

Her books are heartwarming about the lives of her Italian family and friends.

This is an abridged audio on CD version. I won this but had just read the book a few weeks ago ao I am not going to listen to the audio version. This is an unopened copy. I've enjoyed all Trigiani's books and this was no exception. There was a tad too much interior design detail but the characters as usual were wonderful and a very heartwarming read.

Rococo is the story of an interior decorator in the 1970s. B is from a large Italian family full of wild characters. His best friend is a woman who his family chose for him to marry, but they don't love each other. It is their 40th birthdays and they want changes in their lives. His dream is to redecorate the church he grew up attending. But the job may be more than B planned for.

It is a fun, quick read.

B (Bartolomeo) is design in his burb in Jersey. Sadly, he gets the shaft when his beloved Our Lady Of Fatima decides it's time for a redesign. Ultimately his prayers are answered, but what happens when he finally DOES get what he thinks he wants.... The characters are fun and the plot clips along. I read it in one sitting. A fun look at love, family and community.

I loved this book!! I guess because I grew up in New jersey I have a better understanding of the characters? I don't know... I just live the story line and the family ties and it kept my interest. I usually like books that are in-depth. but the indepth feelings of the average Nj's kept my interest!!

the characters in this book are so much fun . I loved Bartolomeo and his
descriptions of his designs also the recipes for the most fattening food (cake) ever

Very entertaining. You have to be able to put up with the long winded descriptions of every fabric in existence, but the "voice" of the story is fun and laugh out loud enjoyable.

Light, enjoyable read. Characters were quirky but familiar. The setting is New Jersey in 1970. All of the 70's details were right on.

Thought I would like this, but found it too predictable.

Although an enjoyable read, not nearly as addictive as Lucia, Lucia and the Stone Gap novels
