This book has had a tremendous impact in my mind, because, among others, faces some of the most burning topics of our time, such as economic crisis, the endless and sinister power of central banks and how to retrieve a peaceful life in a moneyless economy. I am talking about Soul Theory, the free e-book written by Subhendu Das, an Indian author who lives in the US. And it is just for this clear clash between the birth town of the author and hi...

After reading this novel, I am still wondering if it is science fiction or religion fiction. What is surely proved is that is the most religious and spiritual book I ever read in my lifetime. Although it is set in a hedonistic, atheist and selfish future, topics and underlying sense drive us to deepen the Bible once again. I am discussing about Puzzle Master, the book written by T J McKenna.

Here is another book dropped into my hands in the proper time. Just a few days ago, in fact, in Italy, it arrived the spy movie titled “Allied”, with Brad Pitt. Well, I loved this book as much as I loved this movie. I am discussing about The Downing Street Plot: An Agent’s Revenge, a compelling and fast paced spy tale written by Toby Oliver.

Review in Italian L’emozione delle cose. Che bel titolo per un romanzo. Questo titolo racchiude tutto l’amore per le piccole, ma importanti cose della vita e rappresenta un fulgido esempio di come si possa fare grande letteratura partendo proprio dalle piccole cose, “l’emozione delle cose”, appunto. L’autore di questo piccolo, grande capolavoro sui sentimenti, è Angeles Mastretta, affermata scrittrice messicana di origini italiane.

Relief, freedom, deliverance. Here is what I felt as soon as I finished reading “Choices and Illusions“, the inspirational book written by New York Times bestselling author Eldon Taylor. Before browsing the book on my tablet, I didn’t believe to feel what I wrote above. This book is indeed focused on an important topic, namely change what we believe to be and be really ourselves.

Many colleagues defined this book as the modern version of the Divine Comedy and since I am Italian, this description filled me with immense satisfaction. Yes, the book is a modern, whirling and scary version of the poem written by the superb Italian writer Dante Alighieri. The book I have reviewed is titled Highway To Hell and the author is the talented English author Alex Laybourne. I must confess that as soon as I have seen the book on my b...

Review in Italian Questa è la storia di una figlia che ha due padri. Sì, due padri, non un padre e una madre, come è sempre stato secondo una tradizione universalmente accettata. Questa è la storia della piccola Eva, nata all’interno di una coppia omosessuale. I suoi due padri sono, infatti, Christian, giovane professore di latino, e Giose, all’anagrafe Giuseppe Autunno, ex astro nascente della musica punk rock degli anni ’80. Christian ha las...

Sometimes, unlike the Italian language, English does not allow to create an emotional writing for some literary genres. I think, for example, about horror fiction or fantasy or mystery, but this was one of the very few books which managed to impress me even in English. I am discussing about Dark Tales ( the cover is from free-ebooks.net), a sort of dark fiction gushed from the creativity of Chester Lee. In the book, the author faces a burning ...

Why to edit the translated edition of your book
Translations into Italian , Writing / March 29, 2017

With this post,  I want to explain you why you should edit your book after a literary translation into Italian.

Unfortunately, I refused to promote many of these translated books,  because the translations were full of spelling and grammar mistakes.  Then, I discovered, that the authors got the book translated ...

Recensione L’ Eredità di una leggenda di Lory La Selva Paduano
Review IT / February 20, 2017

Quando ho iniziato a sfogliare le prime pagine di questo romanzo storico, mi son detta che sarebbe stato ideale per una fiction televisiva, una di quelle ambientate nell’antica Roma. L’eredita di una Leggenda , ovvero l’edizione italiana del romanzo scritto da Lory La Selva Paduano, si presta benissimo ad una rappresentazione televisiva. In un mondo di soap opera e telenovele stereotipate , questo romanzo rappresenta certamente...
