Typical Calvino, but not his best...

Οι δύσκολοι έρωτες -  Ανταίος Χρυσοστομίδης, Italo Calvino

3.5 / 5

A typical Calvino book, characterized by his excellent descriptive style and unique eye for all those cultural and behavioral details that make his writing so unique. Most of the stories are very interesting and varied. There are some that were not such big hits with me but I feel that they don't affect the whole quality of the book negatively in any way. In short, if you're a fan of Calvino then this is another must-read. If not, you might still find it very interesting and easy to read. Recommended!
