And Peppone. And Smilzo. And the way Christ talks to Don Camillo. I first found Don Camillo stories when I was quite young and am so happy to re-find him years later. I wish the books were more readily available because I think there's a whole new generation who need to be introduced to these to frenemies from Italy. They're wonderful stories! Sep 01, Geoff Bottone rated it really liked it. Now he's a priest in a small Italian town, constantly butting heads with Peppone, another partisan fighter turned Communist mayor. When Peppone wins ten million lira in a lottery an unseemly amount for a member of the Party , Don Camillo helps him to keep it a secret.
In return, the priest forces Peppone to take him with other Italian Party members on a tour of the USSR, where he hopes to win souls back to the church. As an added bonus, Don Camillo talks to Jesus--and Jesus talks back. It's an enjoyable, if very dated book.
A working knowledge of history will certainly help, but the translated prose is clear and readable, and makes it easy to get into the story. Don Camillo's relationship with Peppone is the core conflict of the story and makes for hilarious reading. There's also quite a few genuinely touching moments in the story that warmed the coal black heart of this agnostic, including the climactic miracle of faith on a storm-tossed sea. In addition, Guareschi shares King Missile's opinion of Jesus--who by far the nicest and sanest person in the story. Apr 04, khashayar added it.
Very well, I have not much to say, the book is indeed the cheapest mockery of soviet union I've ever read.
At first this is a very light read, with Don Camillo a thorn in Comrade Peppone's side and post-Stalinist Russia an easy target for ridicule, but from Chapter 8 "Christ's Secret Agent" to the end a more serious tone emerges. As a non-European I was struck by how many untold stories there must be from the traumatic experiences of WWII, both for the Russians and the Italians. Guareschi manages to provide an amusing yet meaningful examination of a post-war Italian community whose hope in communis At first this is a very light read, with Don Camillo a thorn in Comrade Peppone's side and post-Stalinist Russia an easy target for ridicule, but from Chapter 8 "Christ's Secret Agent" to the end a more serious tone emerges.
Guareschi manages to provide an amusing yet meaningful examination of a post-war Italian community whose hope in communism was perhaps ill-advised but understandable Quede encantada con este libro critico pero divertido. I loved picturing the twinkle in his eyes as he wrote about the sabotage.
Dec 11, Jackson Matthews rated it it was amazing. Each book I read it seems as if it is the best. That everyone is filled with the goodness and the scoundrelness is so happily presented. Non ho molto da dire su questo libro. A masterfully entertaining story of ideologies colliding like two deer with their menacing antlers. A good thing it is done in a key of comedy, and considering the heart has a soft place for compassion.
