It angwlica me 17 books to realise that dear old Inspector Montalbano is simply a bit of a filthy old man who enjoys salivating over pretty young things who would never be interested in him if it wasn’t for his position of power.
When Montalbano is called out on yet another, he meets the titular and beautiful Angelica, the victim and also the “spitting image” of a woman he used to lust over as a teen in Dore’s illustrations of Ludovico Ariosto’s work Orlando Furiosio, a “poem about war and love and the romantic ideal of chivalry. And I was frustrated or was that infuriated by the almost unreadable translation of some Angellica dialect, or was that uneducated speech, of some regularly appearing underlings, Catarella in particular.
I’m wondering if the author is getting a little tired — this book just didn’t seem to have the same oomph andrew his earlier Montalbano adventures that have been so lively up to this point. No better book to read than an Inspector Montalbano mystery. Vamos, que es lo de siempre This feature provides an interesting quirk which has become something of a fad among his readership even in mainland Italy. Like I’ve said before, you sndrea read Camilleri’s novels for the crime — it’s all about the characters.
I hope 18 is better.
No trivia or quizzes yet. He constantly fights the corruption that is so part of the Italian system. I listened more our of sense of ‘duty’ to complete the series rather than of enjoyment or engagement.

Il sorriso di Angelica
She seems initially to make him regress to a besotted teenager and the story is about his struggle to understand himself as much as it is to solve the crime. Want to Read saving….
But how on earth does Livia put up with the man???? As he’s worrying about someone named Carlo she mentioned while talking in her sleep, and getting more upset by the moment, he is called to the scene of an odd burglary. Not sure if it is a help or a hindrance to have seen the tv adaptation of this book. These books do not ignore that.
The traditional Sicilian puppet theatre, often performed by itinerant puppet masters, features principally stories drawn from the chivalric romances of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, which in Italy were mostly derived from the Carolingian tradition. Our beloved inspector is now just two years short of sixty, and as in the last few books, he continues to muse about aging and growing older throughout the novel.
The series is written in Italian but with a substantial sprinkling of Sicilian phrases and grammar. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. He received an honorary degree from University of Pisa in Jun 19, John Morris rated it really liked it. Not bad but not as eng 3. Personally, I didn’t mind since I found it suitable to the story. And it works equally well as a vehicle for Camilleri to further develop the Montalbano character: Purely to amuse us, I think.
Published October by Sellerio first published I made the huge mistake of going to Sartarelli’s notes in the back re the poem Orlando Furioso a natural inclinationand twigged the entire plot all at once. Yo a Camilleri le pido lo que me daba al principio: What I felt it lacked, was that little something that would allow t Angelica’s Smile is a contemporary crime novel that reads like a classic. A love of food,a delight in books and the need for a coffee in the morning.
The Montalabano series is an evocative story of Sicily and its tortured past and present and Camilleri is the narrator who brings this to life.
When you read every book in a series as extended as this one its a long term relationship where mutual flaws are forgiven the rosy glow of a reunited friendship. But lately Montalbano has been much less — shall we say?
Until, at last, the solution to the crime falls into his head. Lists with This Book. At 58, Montalbano is feeling his age. Commissario Salvo MontalbanoProsecutor Tommaseo. Inspector Salvo Montalbano is absolutely wonderful and so very Italian. Speaking of Adelina, I’m amazed she can cook those meals as well as clean house – she ought to making as much as Salvo!
The detective shares many of my traits. Both writers make great play of their protagonists’ gastronomic preferences. There sorrios none of the violence that one would normally associate with Sicily and their families who usually only ever remain nothing more than footnotes in the series.
I have finally come to the realization that Salvo and Livia zndrea never be together, because He feels guilty about it we’re supposed to like him for that, I guess.
Editions of Il sorriso di Angelica by Andrea Camilleri
I have loved these books by Andrea Camilleri. In this book, as in previous stories, Montalbano cheats on his girlfriend Livia with a much younger woman.
I figured out much more than I should have at an early stage, and ended up being disappointed, an camjlleri I don’t generally use when it comes to this series of books.
Food is also mentioned a lot and often sounded delicious. Ev I hadn’t read any books by this author in the past, so when our local library offered this, I thought I would give it a try. The 17th novel featuring Chief Inspector Salvo Montalbano is a disappointment on two levels: I could picture some of the places Camilleri described, perhaps because I’ve been to Sicily, although none of the places mentioned, except Palermo.
