I didn't get far. It was becoming a nasty story that promised to become even nastier.

Prose writes very well and it's always a pleasure to read good writing. I enjoy vicarious travel, and because I am a fan of Andrea Camilleri's Montalbano books as well as the Italian TV filmed versions (which are wonderful), I was especially interested in learning more about Sicily. The problem is that I am not educated enough to understand the many references to ancient history, which would probably make this a more interesting book to someone who is.

I expected more from the author based on prior work. It was an entertaining premise but I found the book to be "lite" and an easy read without much depth, character development (other than Lula the Albanian immigrant who came up with the occasional pithy remark) or plot.

This book follows a collection of characters involved with the production of a children's musical, "Mister Monkey." It's over-all an engaging and funny book, though I would say a little disjointed and slapstick.
