Beautiful Ruins


     Beautiful Ruins is a novel that takes place in 1962 in  a small island called, Porto Vergogna in Italy. This novel was written by Jess Walter. This story is about a young mysterious actress that comes to the island and an innkeeper of the island finds her very beautiful, breathtaking. Pasquale, the main character, is a young Italian who studied in Florence and returned to take care of his mom after his father's dead. Pasquale also came back to take car of his parents hotel. He has many dreams for the little island and i wonder if he is going to realize them.

     I decided to read this book because it reminded me of a movie. The setting of this novel was what brought my attention. The only way that the visitors could come was by boat and it is exactly the same as the movie. I believe that the novel will be interesting because of how the author is explaining the little village and the habitants of the island.
