It was an interesting concept but I couldn't lose myself in the story so it took a long time for me to finish. It was fun reading about the food of the time and I liked the protagonist a lot.

Excellently written, very evocative, enjoyed the characters, all that, but it just kind of...ended. The climax was not very climactic. Ah well. If you enjoy tales of the Italian Renaissance, I do recommend it.

All the new roses in Piera's cheeks drained away, leaving her looking as though she'd been carved from the palest ivory. Tommaso was sure he appeared the same. Although that particular pattern of the bells had never run before in his lifetime, he knew--as did every other citizen--what the chimes announced: The plague had come again to Florence.

Good book. Damned good book. One of the best ones I've read in awhile. The way the author builds the post apocalyptic world makes you feel like you're there with the main character.

I love the way she described the world developing after the Vanishing ,and how people pulled together in different groups; some to help each other, and some hellbent on destroying the others.

The only reason I didn't give the book 5 stars is the predictability. Within the first 3 chapters you can pretty much see what's going to happen with a lot of the characters.

The ending isn't predictable, so that came as a complete surprise. I also love the fact that if the author chooses to do so, she can continue stories in this world by picking up side characters, or even going on with the main characters who can have future adventures. If you're into post apocalyptic stories that don't focus on a Dystopian future, pick up this book. Read it, then read it again to see the stuff you missed the first time through.
