A Great Short Story About the Joy of Discovery
Reviewed in the United States on September 22, 2021

 

This is a beautiful short read about the beginning of a journey, how immersing yourself in a great book can open up a whole new world of meaning for you. Emerson really captures the feeling of a spark igniting the spirit, and through the narrator's personal journey we become inspired to discover more of the world and its culture and history.

"Ein kurzes, aber knackiges Buch über Dante, Espresso und wie sich der Mensch von Tag zu Tag, von Seite zu Seite verändern kann. Schön geschrieben und macht nachdenklich. Außerdem hat man danach ein starkes Verlangen, in Italien Espresso zu trinken und dabei den Marktplatz zu beobachten. Sehr empfehlenswert."
