  1. Follow on to The Little World of Don Camillo my review here review show , a continuation of of the same If you liked the first, you will probably like the second The sense of looking at a lost time and place some aspects of which are very much better staying lost is strong and interesting also of looking at a time and place undergoing change both in its recent past and its unsuspected future, the latter of which angle would not have been available to its original 1950s readers, and which occasi [...]


  2. Not sure why I found this a bit disappointing, but it felt a bit flat after having watched throughout my childhood the Don Camillo and Peppone film with the magnificent Fernandel Also made the mistake of reading the foreword, which explained all about how the stories were sort of meant to be a parody of the Cold War Until then they were just hilarious Italian stories with quite a lot of wisdom thrown in, even if often it is Jesus himself who makes you or Don Camillo see it.




  3. Reading stories of Don Camillo is to travel to the Valley of the River Po, Italy s widest and most fertile plain, with its unique atmosphere, culture and natural history And to do so in the incomparable company of a cast of characters who testify to the exquisite humor and humanity of their creator.Giovanni Guareschi, himself a native of the Lower Plain, first drew breath in Fontanelle di Roccabianca on May Day, 1908, returning to buy a house there in Roncole Verdi in 1952, after a decade of get [...]



  4. Ottimo seguito del primo Don Camillo Pressoch un tutt uno con il primo romanzo.La recensione della serie in calce a Don Camillo Mondo Piccolo.




  5. I did not enjoy this as much as the Little World but even bad Don Camillo is pretty good Flock was let down by a lack of focus on the relationship between Peppone and Don Camilllo we seemed to have Camillo as our POV character often, and Jesus didn t seem to be much of a factor at all as Camillo went through largely uncorrected There were some high points though, notably Two Blessed Hands.I liked but didn t love it, so three stars it is.


  6. I had to read the 3 Don Camiilo volumes after I started the first Morality is woven throughout in these wonderful stories.


  7. Leggendo queste pagine sembra di vivere al fianco dei personaggi che di volta in volta vedono le proprie strade incrociarsi Persone semplici, che spesso solcano le stradine di campagna e le sconnesse vie dei paesini della Bassa a piedi, talvolta in bicicletta, come Don Camillo, o a bordo di una sgangherata motocicletta, come il vecchio Peppone.Forse proprio il trambusto dei nostri giorni moderni a farci apprezzare ancor di pi l aroma pittoresco della campagna incontaminata e il suono della piogg [...]


  8. Don Camillo e il prete di Brescello, con mani come due badili e un cuore grande come i suoi enormi scarponi Ha solo un piccolo problema iul suo calendario sio e fermato al 1666, e sembra non rendersi conto di vivere nel 1966 Per ricordarglielo, viene mandato in canonica il giovane e rampante Don Francesco, detto Don Chichi, prete del popolo , sempre pronto a stare, non sempre a ragione, dalla parte del povero E poi c e Caterpillar detta Cat, la scalmanata nipotina di Don Camillo E Veleno, ultimo [...]


  9. Originally published on my blog here in April 2000.The second collection of Don Camillo stories continues to be charming, though it is not as good as the first The limitations of the chosen subject begin to become apparent, and some of the stories from Don Camillo and the Prodigal Son are little than repetitions of ones from The Little World of Don Camillo The altar crucifix plays a rather smaller role than it does in the first book, which is a pity though the voice of Christ is barely present [...]



  10. The first book in this series The Little World of Don Camillo is still one of my all time favorites and I read it every time the election cycle ramps up and I recently got my grubby hands on a bunch of the sequels If you haven t read them, this series is basically made up of short satirical stories set in a small Post WWII Italian town where the communist mayor and Catholic priest are both bruisers who clash all the time and sometimes solve things with guns and fists but are also grudging friend [...]


  11. Gli angeli e i demoni del dopoguerraAlla fine degli anni quaranta e inizio anni cinquanta, il parroco Don Camillo e il sindaco comunista Peppone, avversari nella politica e negli ideali, si contendono i cuori e le anime degli abitanti d un un paese della bassa parmense Tra episodi comici e drammatici, dichiarazioni di saggezza popolare e spunti di riflessione, i racconti che compongono queste raccolte, pur fornendo una visione edulcorata e di parte dell Italia del dopoguerra, restano un testamen [...]


  12. the series of Don Camillo is the village priest his adversary is Peppone, the communist Mayor and how the two deal with sitations that occur within their little village in Italy The two antagonists stand on either side never shifting from their stance, but yet come togerther in their won ways to keep the peace within Very humoursly written by Giovanni, a humour that even the most die hard leftists those of a religious bent of mind will find hard not to agree.


  13. Hace casi 40 a os que lo le , lo que significa que los detalles sobran, sin embargo tengo un muy agradable recuerdo de este libro.Con un estilo muy natural y poco rebuscado relata las relaciones de un cura y un alcalde comunista en un pueblo de Italia Se han hecho peliculas del libro que resultaron un xito y el libro se recuerda con mucho cari o y buen humor.


  14. I am only giving this 3 stars because it did not seem up to the wonderfulness of the first book, The Little World of DOn Camillo or the stories in Don Camillo s Dilemma However, any time spent with DOn Camillo and Peppone in the Po River valley is time well spent.


  15. Giovanni Guareschi s short stories set in a community in the Po River Valley after WWII describe the world as seen through the eyes of the local priest, Don Camillo and the Communist mayor of the town, Peppone.An old classic worth re reading in today s world.



  16. Humor en ontroering De bekende vete tussen een dorpspastoor en een communistische burgemeester in het naoorlogse Italie Ik vind het minder grappig dan vroeger en ook minder relevant Het boek is duidelijk getekend door de tijd, maar ja, dat ben ik zelf ook.
