The Neapolitan Sisters: 02/17/23
The Neapolitan Sisters by Margo Candela is a novel of three sisters coming together for the youngest sister's second wedding. Maritza wants the perfect wedding and refuses to settle. Claudia, Harvard educated is now a film producer. Dulcina "Dooley" works as a bartender in San Francisco and is a recovering addict.
The chapters alternate points of view among the sisters, starting with Maritza. If you listen to the audiobook, each sister will have her own narrator in her point of view chapter.
I chose to listen to the audiobook version because I normally am better about not skimming or skipping when listening. After about two hours of this nearly ten hour book, I was bored to distraction.
The chapter that did me in and made me decide to skip to the last half hour of the book was the one in which Dooley describes a night of sex with someone. Sex here. Sex there. Sex everywhere. She and her partner must be Olympic athletes to have so much in such a short amount of time. It was both ridiculous and incredibly dull to listen to.
