Not my kind of book.2015年1月17日に英国でレビュー済み
Not my kind of book. I guess if you were a young girl in the early 1900's then it might have been worth reading but I found the style frustrating. Nowadays "show not tell" is the maxim for any kind of writing .. maybe it wasn't around on those days. It might be worth reading for research purposes but I think I will stick to more modern (or classic) books in the future.

This what not quite what I was expecting. It started out fine as a travel adventure but seemed to get a bit far fetched and unbelievable after a while then next thing you knew it was all over.
I recommend " Aunt Jane's Nieces " (the original) but not this entry in the series. I couldn't believe that master storyteller L. Frank Baum could write so tediously, continously "telling not showing" the action. He even manages to make an eruption of Mount Vesuvius sound dull and prosaic. The story picks up in pace dramatically when a main character gets kidnapped, but the resolution to the episode left a sour taste in my mouth. I had the impression that Baum didn't particularly like these characters and perhaps enjoyed punishing them a bit. Perhaps a publisher insisted on an "Aunt Jane's Nieces" story when Baum was trying to sell a thrilling kidnap tale, and he had to change the characters and pad it out to get it sold?
This book is the story of Aunt Jane's nieces and Uncle John's visit to Europe. However, most of the book describes their time near Italy, when a volcano erupts and they deal have dealings with some brigands. It's a cute book, written by the author of the Wizard of Oz. The family has some wild adventures, but it's not scary at all, as it would have been, had it been written nowadays.
