If the problem persists, please try again in a little while. Read preview. His articles are often very personal: he professes his antimilitarism, his hate for war, army, and discipline, but he is always realistic; on 12 August , in the article "Chiamata al dolore" Call for Pain signed "Pierino", he speaks of his wish that a normal life would come back as soon as possible: Purche finisca! E la parola d'ordine. Tutti la conoscono e se la passano. E un basso ostinato d'ogni discorso e d'ogni pensiero.
Tra poco sara insegna di negozio e cartellone di spettacolo Questi uomini che hanno paura di soffrire ancora, di piu.
E sono pronti e maturi per la piu grande vigliaccheria. It is a tale of hypocrisy, unholy symbioses, closed societies and bestial famille alliances.
RE DI GIRGENTI LA DOCUMENT PDF Original - Free E-Book Download
The ruling classes are undermined when two respected families learn independently that their daughters have fallen pregnant but neither girl will not disclose the father. To save face, dishonour and public gossip they hide away while the local doctor rallies around. This leads to a number of signals that are misinterpreted to the point that their imposed quarantine is viewed as being due to cholera. This creates a number of interesting episodes with the dangers of travel being highlighted. This is a wonderful distraction but it does lay the foundation to plot developments later.
It brings to the fore a Captain Montagnet to reinstate law and order. Resented as neither a local man nor open to political persuasion. Before his arrival the most hated man in town was a lawyer, Matteo Teresi. They work well together with deferent motives, Teresi is seen as anti-clerical and writes a newsletter highlighting some of the establishments excesses. While in tandem they solve the mystery of the unexplained pregnancies and wider corruption. The mayor outwardly pleased feels his power base has been undermined and the bishop as a loss to deal with implied corruption in the church.
I loved the bit about rendering unto Caesar. Once the official police officer is prompted away the power struggle resumes. Montagnet warns Teresi to watch his back but the battles appear to begin each day and the three shadowy political powers flex their muscles determined that their kind are not at a loss.
A fascinating reversal of fortune is played out that makes you want to pinch yourself and say but we read that so A wonderfully interlaced story with characters believing that money, genes, history and necessity gets things done. A rally call to people today to look beyond tradition, political masters, class and threats to seek truth as things can slip to a time when things were not better.
Something strange is going on in Palizzolo. Will he find the truth or will his enemies get the best of him? I actually picked up this book specifically seeking works of Italian Authors. I was pleasantly surprised when I started to read "The Sect of Angels.
The Author clearly states this book is not factual in any way and explains the origin for the name and an excerpt used to structure the premises of the book. So don't get too wrapped up in the scandals I thought of the characters as an inappropriate play on the characters from "Grumpy Old Men. The true story this book is based on is fascinating; I highly recommend reading the author's note at the end of the book, where he discusses the true events that inspired this novel.
Comedy switches to the grotesque in this story, and it's very much a social commentary on small town life.
Il Re di Girgenti, Agrigento
People of the town go to great lengths to keep the status-quo, even if it means sweeping crimes under the rug and using an innocent man as a scapegoat. This is a well-written book, and brings to light a scandal The true story this book is based on is fascinating; I highly recommend reading the author's note at the end of the book, where he discusses the true events that inspired this novel.
This is a well-written book, and brings to light a scandal that has mostly been forgotten about and under-reported. I would love to see this story from one of the girls' point of view, and for there to be more psychological exploration into the men who decided to use God and the church to commit these crimes. I think fans of Andrea Camilleri will enjoy this, and I think this book will bring him new fans as well. Based on a true scandal in a small village in Sicily at the turn of the century, A Sect of Angels is a humorous and captivating little mystery with a wonderful setting and a large cast of colorful characters.
Putting a spotlight on corruption, elaborate cover-ups, and the abuse of power, it's near impossible not to draw parallels to current events in religion and politics around the world. Great stuff from the author of the Inspector Montalbano series and always interesting Europa Editions. This book for me was a little hard to read. There were so many names that I found it hard to remember who was who. If you can get past that, the story is quite amusing. It is based on true evevts that took place in a small Sicilian town.
It was well written and very interesting.
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. It was a rollicking and humorous story, an amusing frenzy filled with a large and vivid cast of Sicilians.

The seriousness of the story gradually becomes apparent, with ever increasing gravity, and it becomes even more shocking when one finds that the story was based on true events.

Un grave scandalo all'interno della Chiesa cattolica, abusi su ragazze minorenni e non, circonvenzione di buona fede, soprusi e vessazioni in nome dello "Spirito Santo". Ne avrei attribuite 5 di stelle, e se le merita tutte Camilleri, lo dico subito, mi sta antipatico: non mi piacciono le sue idee, non mi piace che faccia uscire un libro nuovo ogni mese, non mi ha mai suscitato il minimo interesse la serie di Montalbano, sia su carta sia sullo schermo, e mi infastidisce la sua interminabile lunghezza.
Insomma, poche sorprese. Un libro non brutto, ma senza infamia e senza lode.

Mar 07, Serena rated it it was amazing. Sono una fan del Camilleri di Montalbano, ma devo ammettere che non ho mai letto altro di questo autore finora. Il mio era un po' timore che potesse deludermi con romanzi noiosi e senza l'umorismo che caratterizza le storie del commissario vigatese. Per fortuna questa volta ho deciso di provare: libro bellissimo.
I botta e risposta nei dialoghi sono sempre esilaranti; nonostante il tema molto serio ho riso veramente tanto. Adesso so che Camilleri non si smentisce mai. Originally published on my blog: Nonstop Reader. The Sect of Angels is a novella by Andrea Camilleri , who is well known as the author of the Montalbano mysteries.
Released 30th April by Europa Editions , it's pages and available in paperback and ebook formats. Prolific and engaging, Camilleri's books are readable and always enjoyable. I have been following his work for years.

I found this story, based on true events from in a rural town in Sicily, a lot heavier going than the Inspector Montalbano books which are lighthearted and fun. The central themes of duplicity and exploitation of the weak and naive by people in power religious and political leaders has too many parallels in today's world to make for entirely comfortable reading.
