In eigenen Worten:
Hi everyone! My name is Steph, I'm a student at the University of Scranton in Scranton, PA where I double major in Italian and French and minor in History. If someone handed me an gift certificate I'd buy out their entire stock of Dalida CDs! And if I had a month off I'd probably travel all around the world visiting art museums. I love anything and everything that has to do with Italy! … Mehr dazu

The Fall (Vintage International) von Albert Camus
4.0 von 5 Sternen Falling for "The Fall", 7. Juli 2000
At first I really had no idea what I thought of this book. I read it in its original French and a lot of the time I was like "Huh?" But as I got further into the book I was able to see Camus' point about life and regrets. This book is an excellent aid for someone who wants to reflect on their life, it gives ideas to ponder. I especially enjoyed the parts that dealt with suicide and the logic behind it. No one really ever thinks of it in those terms. This book is a quick read and well worth it. The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is because at times I felt like Jean-Baptiste was rambling on too much. Othwerwise, it was an excellent book and should be read by fans of… Mehr dazu
LA Dame Aux Camelias (World's Classics) von Alexandre Dumas
This book was absolutely wonderful. At first I was worried because most of the time when I read a French book in translation, it seems lacking. This one definately was NOT lacking! David Coward did an excellent job of translating the book. The characters were definately believable, from the tragic Marguerite and Armand, to Monsieur Duval and Prudence. This book will capture anyone's imagination. I read this book in under 2 hours, I could not but it down. The story is exceptionally well crafted and what really makes it interesting was that it was based on a true story with Alexandre Dumas, fils, and Marie Duplessis, a popular courtesan in Paris at the time. This book is a must-read… Mehr dazu
Bella Tuscany: The Sweet Life in Italy von Frances Mayes
1.0 von 5 Sternen Noiossimo, 5. Juli 2000
I really enjoyed "Under the Tuscan Sun", so I decided to read "Bella Tuscany". I found "Bella Tuscany" to be a little boring and not at all what I'd expected. I had expected to see Mayes grow more accustomed to living in Italy and there fore be more "Italian". She still seemed like an American living in Italy with the "Oh my I'm in a foreign country" syndrome most tourists encounter. I had expected Mayes to have grown a lot more as a writer also, I found this book to be dry. It was like she was rambling on and on and on. I was to the point where I didn't even want to finish the book just so I could be put out of my misery. The book… Mehr dazu
