An original Italian easy reader by Francesca Colombo

Meet Anselmo the apothecary, one of the few educated men of his day. And it’s because of his learning that he’s occasionially called upon by the powerful when they need help resolving their problems.

This time, the apothecary’s task is to discover who was behind the killing of the Pope’s son. Certainly a learned man should be able to figure it out! An important political alliance depends on his answer, not least the unity of the Borgias themselves, a powerful ruling family who are famous for their power struggles and indfidelities.

As Anselmo soon learns, though, it appears to be in nobody’s interest for him to actually find the truth. And in an age in which only power really matters, he’s playing a dangerous game…

(This is Volume 1 in the Anselmo trilogy. Volume 2 is Anselmo e la moglie spagnola and volume 3 is Anselmo e l’avvelenamento del Papa).

4 reviews for Anselmo e l’omicidio di Giovanni Borgia (C1/2)

    I found this an entertaining read. I reckon I’m at about B2 level although I read at a bit higher. As an experiment, I read it straight through without a dictionary (although the glossary was useful). I found I could easily follow the story although there was some new vocabulary for me. I came to this after reading Il Nome della Rosa and some of the vocabulary was familiar although the structure and language was sooo much easier. I liked it so much I’m going to buy the other two.

    I finished reading this great little story 2 weeks ago & I’m sorry I took so long to put up a review.
    I can read much better than I can speak and write in Italian hence this being in English.
    I was attracted to the story because it has the sort of plot and setting of books I like to read in English – a murder mystery set in 15th / 16th centuries – and I wasn’t disappointed. I found the characters of Anselmo and his brother engaging and the plot kept me going til the end.
    (A general comment :- I like the way the audio is within the book so you don’t have to insert a separate cd rom or download some other app to listen. I also like the short exercises at the end of the chapters – just enough to keep you on your toes but not enough to interrupt the flow)

    Ho appena iniziato questo eBook e non riesco a smettere di leggerlo. La storia è intrigante e il vocabolario stimolante, così come l’uso del passato remoto. Mi piacciono anche gli esercizi alla fine di ogni capitolo. Dopo aver letto il testo, ascolto on line. Esistono molti modi per utilizzare questo testo e ascoltare una storia interessante.

    Ho comprato questo libro stamattina e l’ho già finito. Mi è piaciuto molto. Per me questi libri sono un buon metodo per arricchire il lessico. Sto preparando le flashcards su Anki e poi lo leggerò di nuovo ad alta voce per migliorare la mi pronuncia.
