Reviews for Bel Canto
My favorite book of all time
A beautiful book, I was enraptured from start to finish. In this story music transcends language and is a source of inspiration, a catalyst for change, a soundtrack for joy and for tragedy.
I was particular enamored with central character Katsumi Hosokawa, a Japanese businessman and lover of Opera. If you share his love of Opera then you will enjoy Bel Canto (an operatic term meaning 'beautiful song') all the more. by Kristyn Andrew

Clichés and bad Spanish
The characters in this book are so cliché (i.e. all the Greeks wear a moustache, of course) and it was so clear that nobody had took their time to make the terrorists speak in proper Spanish (instead we have a incorrectly written mix of different Spanish styles), that I barely read more than one chapter. by Belen Garcia
