      Oh brother. A friend gave me this book before my last trip to Italy. She likes this sort of book, dripping with overly dramatic and very unrealistic romanticism. Complete with Dianphanous gowns and melodramatic gestures.If I hadn't found it funny, I would have never finished it.The story is yet another one of a woman who has undergone "dramatic changes" in her life and runs to Italy to find herself. Are you still awake? Sorry I dozed off for a moment there. In Venice she meets a lonely Italian b [...]

      "Venice is all our fantasies. Water, light, color, perfume, escape, disguise, license are gold spun and stitched into the skirts she trails across her stones by day and spreads over her lagoon in the never-quite-blackness of her nights."A short book of love, travel, food, and chance encounters Blasi has traveled to Venice many times, and on one of her trips, the day she is scheduled to leave, she meets Fernando, a Venetian who correctly identifies her as a woman he saw during her previous trip ( [...]

      I'm feeling generous with 4 Stars. To be fair, I would give it 3.5. This is a beautifully written narrative of life in Venice. It’s a tiny bit flowery with the romance, at least for me, but it still remains sweet. The food descriptions are incredible. The author is a chef and has included recipes. I always enjoy books that weave recipes into the stories. I assume that others in the series will have recipes also. The author is a chef and she not only loves food, but simply loves life.

    4. Andrea on said:

      As I have said before there is just something about travel books that draws me in. Ever since I read A Year in Provence I was hooked on the genre. A couple of months ago I read A Thousand Days in Tuscany. Not far into the book I realized that Venice came before Tuscany and I had missed how our lovely couple met and moved to Tuscany. I'm a stickler for reading series in the correct order so I was disturbed that I was going to have to go backward and the story would be ruined. The way de Blasi wri [...]

      The sun is beginning her descent. The last few rays of sunshine illuminate my living room as I curl up tighter under my blanket. In the last remains of the day, my red wine shines purple hues onto my plate of grilled salmon and rosemary seasoned potatoes. I feel my room soak up the evening as I turn to the final chapter of A Thousand Days in Venice.This is a book for romantics, for those who believe in love. In the words of the Chicago Tribune, it is “a true, disarming, and unexpectedly endear [...]

      In November 1993 the author arrived in Venice with two friends in tow. As they lunched at a small local place, she noticed a table of four men seated nearby. After all the other patrons had left and she and her friends were alone in the restaurant, the waiter approached and said there was a telephone call for her. “Not possible,” she answered. They had only just arrived that morning and had not yet notified their friends where they were, surely they hadn’t told anyone where they were going [...]

      This is a great book. Nothing as I thought it would be. Picked this up in a used bookstore. Pleasantly surprised. It is so very rich in identifying the culture of the Italian life and rich history of friends, family and relationships and how it is intertwined with the food and traditions of Tuscan living. I've been to Tuscany but what can you gleen in 10 days. Marlena De Blasi builds a fabulous story of truth and tribal knowledge steeped deeply in what we are only beginning to realize here in Am [...]

    8. Mel on said:

      The author tells her tale of meeting her husband and moving to Venice. It's a fairytale that romances the process of adapting to a new country. Marlena meets Fernando hours before her flight is scheduled to depart. He follows her back to the US. The only point really shared about his visit to St Louis is that she get the flu while he's there. She decides to sell her newly refurbished home and marry him in Italy. The reader is not given any details on the connection between the two. Frankly, Fern [...]

      This book had a few enjoyable moments, but unfortunately, the dull moments lasted longer. In a nutshell, the book is about a middle-aged Midwestern woman who travels to Venice, meets an Italian man who she spends a couple of days with, then he goes to visit her in St. Louis for two weeks, then she gives up her entire life to move to Venice to marry him. There have been a couple of sequels, so I know this couple are still together, but I don't think I'll bother reading any other books by this aut [...]

      I was hesitant whether this would be good or not (to me, a memoir is only good if the author has an interesting story to tell, or if they can tell that story in an interesting manner) -- but three things intrigued me: 1) It's about love and chance encounters 2) It's about travel 3) Specifically, it's about Venice, Italy.Overall, I wasn't disappointed. Turns out, the author did have an interesting story to tell, and she told it in a mostly interesting manner. I found some of it to be pretty unbel [...]

    11. Susan Johnson on said:

      I think I have discovered that memoirs must not be my cup of tea. The authors are just so full of themselves. I guess they'd have to be or they wouldn't be writing about themselves. This author is incredibly full of herself. She lost me when she moved into apartment in Venice and covered her dining room table with damask tied at the bottom to the legs. She said something like she's all about the textiles. Really? Is that the most important thing in your life? Textiles?The author meets her future [...]

    12. Liane Spicer on said:

      Italy fascinates me and this book was highly recommended so I just had to buy it. I was not disappointed. De Blasi's approach to living parallels mine, which is: never be afraid to start again; never stop believing in the power of love; let your life be an adventure; never stop learning and growing; go with your heart even if all the voices say you're crazy to step away from the safe, tried and true As a prolific reader and a writer, I found her writing style exquisite. Her imagery does justice [...]

    13. Amy on said:

      What an odd combination of feelings and thoughts I had reading this book. First of all, nostalgia, both for Venice (you'd have to be dead or totally unromantic to not be wistful about Venice) and St Louis, where I used to live. When Marlena talks about Balabans, I heaved a sign, remembering all the great times and meals I had at the restaurant with friends and loved ones. When she mentioned Forest Park, I escaped back to the multitude of memories I have of that wonderful place, that was just mer [...]

      So I have this experiment that I'm trying, call it book monogamy. For the past week, I've tried reading one book at a time. Granted, I'm not sure how long this can last, but I fear that as I go along with this, some books may fall by the wayside because in this dedication of time, I must feel a sweltering invigoration from the book I am reading--okay maybe at least something close. I hope that this experiment doesn't find me meandering through books, looking for something I didn't lose in the fi [...]

      There were a couple of things I really liked about this book. I loved the main character's spirit of adventure and how she seemed so at home in the world and adaptable. I also love how, at the verge of leaving her old life and moving to a new country, she decides to leave behind all her old sad life stories and just keep the good.That said, I was alarmed at her quick courtship and attachment to the man she calls "the stranger" during most of the book. I felt sure that some young girl is going to [...]

    16. Bookmaniac70 on said:

      I throughly enjoyed this book. It started a bit like a romance novel but Marlena de Blasi writes very inteligently and page after page I discovered something more than that. It`s a really beautiful story about love in a mature age. I loved the light-hearted way of telling it. I was impressed by what she said about the tower of pain-how we accumulate pain and keep it within ourselves to show off. That was exactly the thing she managed to avoid in her story.It sounded fresh and light,as a real new [...]

    17. Maltaise on said:

      This book did not completely achieve its potential. The author, a middle-aged woman from the Mid-West meets an Italian while she is in Venice-who is not without his eccentricities. He visits her in St. Louis and she decides to marry him and move to Venice. The story describes their relationship, her discovery of Venice and Italian culture and her re-doing of his home. The story is enjoyable and you want their relationship to work-however I thought the story line could have been better developed. [...]

    18. Elise on said:

      I have a fondness for the travel category 'What's it like to live in a foreign land?'. The genre feeds my yet unfulfilled longing to live elsewhere.The author, on rather limited info, decides to move to Venice and marry Fernando , a melancholy Italian banker. For much of the book she calls him 'the stranger' as they learn to live and love together. Like Under a Tuscan Sun, she struggles with Italian bureauocracy and work ethics while embracing the beauty and culture. The memoir may be a bit fluf [...]

    19. Margaret on said:

      Enough with the blueberry-eyed stranger. Does he have a name or did the author forget it in her haste to marry this man.I was not familiar enough with Venice to understand all of the things she referred to.Also, I consider myself a decent cook and her recipes were beyond my skill level.

    20. Mary on said:

      Tried to get into this book and just couldn't do it. Finally gave up since I couldn't see wasting my time after all you can't get time back so why spend it on a less than worthwhile book. I had high hopes for this so it's very disappointing.

    21. Trisha on said:

      The writing style and make-believe tone of the story bored me. I couldn't take it seriously. The MC was confusing and I didn't like her.

    22. Seamus Geraghty on said:

      I feel like I'm in love with a city that I've never even seen, and I've married a stranger who I will never know. Beautifully written.

    23. Sharni on said:

      this book makes me want to visit Venice 10000x more than i already did, even though ya know - tourism is currently destroying the Venetian culture (im such a ray of sunshine)

    24. J.H. Moncrieff on said:

      One of the best travel memoirs I've ever read. Beautiful, inspiring--a love letter to Venice and to love itself Blasi's story is fascinating. A successful food/travel writer and chef, she is still willing to put it all on the line when a stranger approaches her in Venice and tells her he fell in love with her a year ago and in his heart has been looking for her ever since. That de Blasi--divorced and middle-aged, is STILL able to follow her heart and instincts, is an amazing thing. Sometimes the [...]

    25. Suzie Kitchin on said:

      Interesting read including observations about learning to live in a different culture/language/country and the challenges and joys this brings. Also explores a couple later in life wanting to be together but also set in their ways of living.

    26. Italo Italophiles on said:

      The subtitle of this book is An Unexpected Romance. In this memoirs-autobiography-travelogue the author twists about her real-life experiences in a time-tripping, flowery-written account, to create the semblance of a fictional Venetian romance novel. We get history, Italian culture, the problems of the immigrant, and lots of late-romance angst.While reading A Thousand Days in Venice I found myself thinking about the humorist Mark Twain's observation that "Truth is stranger than fiction because f [...]

    27. Elizabeth on said:

      I didn't realize the author of this book was writing about herself until I got to the very end and then looked at the author's name. I actually wasn't even sure of the female character's name until I finished the book and then reread the back. If that gives any indication about what I thought about the book and how I enjoyed it, it wouldn't be wrong.Now knowing that De Blasi was writing about herself, my opinion of the book might change a little, because i kept thinking "Who would write this abs [...]

    28. Silvio111 on said:

      About 50 pages into this book, it started to feel very familiar and I realized that I have read at least the beginning of it once before, but for the life of me I cannot remember when.I must say, as romantic as I believe myself to be, I found it very hard to believe that this smart, successful, and creative woman would sell her house and leave everything she knew in the USA behind to move sight unseen into the rather sordid, well okay, somewhat deteriorated flat of this rather unremarkable Venet [...]

    29. Annmarie on said:

      To continue my travel memoir kick. . . this was a pleasing memoir with a lovely literary style of writing and wonderful descriptions of food and cooking. Good for foodies. The author is an American chef and writer who while staying in Venice meets a "blueberry eyed" Venetian man who looks like Peter Sellers and who falls in love with her at first sight. She falls in love with him too, and moves to live in Venice with him, in a decidedly unromantic apartment that she redecorates & then they r [...]
