2 Sentence Review: Bel Canto by Ann Patchett

April 28, 2010

According to Wikipedia, the characteristics of the Bel Canto as an operatic vocal style include: “the ability to execute fast, accurate divisions” and “a pleasing, well-focused timbre.”

Without understanding these musical terms precisely, Ann Patchett’s PEN/Faulker award-winning Bel Canto seems to include similar characteristics as it floats seamlessly between narrative perspectives and introduces characters whose identities ring loud enough to penetrate any circumstances.

Buy Bel Canto from Amazon or the audiobook from Alibris.
