free read Il paradiso dei diavoli ô PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Naples is a city with two sides the sun kissed coast and the shadows of the back alleys It is at once beautiful and full of suffering It is the paradise of the devilsThis novel by Franco Di Mare is a mournful h. Mr Di Mare describes a Naples I didn t know existed Among the gangs the alleyways the killings is a love of food that is incongruent with the grime I found the story extremely compelling but the English translation somewhat confusing Not being familiar with Naples there are so many references to street names and areas that it made my head spin With the introduction of each character I found myself checking to see if I had met them already I loved the duality of Carmine actions and his conscience Loved the story but there was a lot of noise in between

free read Il paradiso dei diavoli ô PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ymn of love for Naples and the compelling story of its eternal contradictions A vivid and dreadful portrait of the city setting the stage for a diverse cast of characters from Carmine a man with a double soul a. 4 stars for story idea 25 stars for execution at least in English translation The Paradise of the Devils tells the stories of a variety of Neapolitan citizens all of whom are connected in some way to Carmine Cacciapuoti a former scholar of romantic philology turned Camorra hit man Di Mare s characters are well drawn particularly those of Carmine and his girlfriend Lena and they would normally have earned him a 4 star ratingHowever there are two significant flaws in this book The first and lesser issue is that Di Mare skips around wildly in time which makes the overall plot difficult to follow I finally started annotating each chapterepisode with the approximate year in which it occurred so that I could follow the development of the characters relationshipsThe greater issue by far is the poor uality of the English translation Gemma Webber the translator is a native Italian speaker not a native English speaker and it shows The translation is replete with anachronistic slang which is both jarring and lends a presumably unintentional pulp feel to the dialogue I m fairly certain that no one refers to women as dames any At other times the translation is stilted Here is Lena s description of her students For her they were like amoebas elementary organisms whose sole reason for existing was to satisfy their basic animal needsWebber also appears to have substituted American references for their Italian counterparts with no consideration as to whether such a substitution makes sense For example Marco De Matteo a reporter with the Corriere del Mezzogiorno wonders whether a story will earn him a Pulitzer nomination yet only US newspapers are eligible for the Pulitzer competition At another point Lena follows Carmine to discover the real nature of his job wondering to herself whether Carmine will claim that he worked for the Secret Service or the FBI American organizations which do not operate outside the United States Given the pervasive use of Italian phrases throughout the book I simply cannot understand why Webber chose not to leave the original Italian names with if necessary an explanatory phrase or footnoteAlthough I enjoyed Di Mare s story I strongly suggest that he and his publisher find another translator for any future works otherwise I will not be reading him againI received a free copy of The Paradise of the Devils through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
