Book Review: The Leopard by Giuseppe Di Lampedusa

Much emphasis was placed on getting this story published. Mission accomplished. The build up for that, however, did not fully meet my coaxed anticipation as a result. I also had some difficulty staying “on point” with name changes and the authors odd inclusion of modern day time references. I wanted to stay in the period, understand Garibaldi’s influence on the characters and move forward with them. The last chapter, however, took a major leap, forcing an ending that otherwise would have been better for me if allowed to build. All in all, I learned some things, found the author’s skew interesting, and warmed slightly to the overall tale.
