Rated 4 out of 5 by from Twice as good i have read this book in its original italian and after a few years in english; nothing is lost in translation. The book is incredible and so is Calvino. He was a brilliant writer with a wonderful imagination, that makes us all think twice about ourselves and why we live our lives the way we do.
