Blue Italian is so moving, so different in tone from Rita Ciresi s later novels It s the type of book you know the ending by the second chapter, and as I kept reading it was like prodding a scab Did I really want to continue watching Rosa fall in love with Gary Did I want to see what they go they go through before he ultimately succumbs from cancer not really a spoiler most of the novel is told in flashback, and as I mentioned earlier, it talks about his death in the second chapter Then again, h [...]

I think I am the only person I know who has read this book, and I have read it multiple times It s a tale of a woman from a working class, Italian neighborhood in New Haven who falls in love with a Jewish guy from a fancy background Challenges ensue The plot may sound hackneyed and predictable but Ciresi s characters, Rosa and Gary, are multi dimensional and flawed, which makes the story take unexpected turns that depart from the usual tensions over religion, money, and culture that one would ex [...]

A story about a woman from Connecticut raised in an Italian American family She seems to struggle with her background, her family, and life She meets and eventually marries a Yale law student, who is from Long Island, and is an only child from a Jewish family There is a lot to connect in the story to the title Blue Italian That said, I picked up the book to read because the author is a woman, writing about a woman I figured, as a male, I could peer inside the mind of a woman, a little, and see w [...]

The characters in this story made this book a fun read for me even though the ending was sad The Italian references were spot on in my family anyway I just loved Gary s sarcastic wit with his wife and mother in law This book really should have gotten attention It is just as good as any fiction that is currently out.

A fun quick read The language used by the characters seemed so real and gave an authentic flavor to the Italian and Jewish components Rosa s and Gary s embarrasment of their respective families was palbable It was easy to like this couple and even though you know what the ending will be it was well written.

Throughout the first 2 3 of the book, just wanted to tell them to get over their childhoods already However, the end of the book allowed enough growth of the characters that I could muster up some sympathy and even cried at one point Not my favorite.

I really liked this one, despite the fact that it made me want to cry at times The ending was a bit predictable I especially enjoyed the author s liberal use of Italian slang and curse words it reminds me of my family.

I had fun with this one This novel truly shows the intricacies of marriage and family dynamics It s a bitter sweet tale that shows how we can love and hate our spouses at the same time and that s normal

As unfunny as Sometimes I Dream in Italian was funny This chronicles a young married couple through courtship, marriage, in laws, miscarriage, and death of the husband from cancer It was interesting but too grim The bride complains all the time and never expresses her love.

This story was emotionally charged but captured my attention it highlights the value of relationships never taking anything for granted.

The many Italian references and originality kept my interest, though I want to scream at the protagonist to stop feeling so Catholic and therefore guilty for things that weren t her fault.
