To say that Ms. Patchett’s book is beautiful, would be an understatement. To think that I could love this book even more than Ms. Patchett’s, “The Patron Saint of Liars,”is hard to believe but I did.
“Bel Canto,” which won numerous awards is the type of book that stays with you. It is perfectly crafted, and structured, and very seldom will you see such a diverse cast of characters so beautifully developed over the course of a book.
One could say its main theme is MUSIC conquers all. Its universality transcends different cultures, language barriers, makes friends out of enemies, and brings lovers together.
Such an amazingly beautiful piece of literature.
