Bel Canto - Ann Patchett

Bel Canto Bel Canto by Ann Patchett

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
Loved this book. Unlike many I've read lately, this one started out just ok, then about 100 pages in it became fascinating. One of the best books I've read, couldn't put it down.

The premise is a hostage situation in Argentina involving an Opera Singer, Japanese businessman, Vice President, inept kidnappers, Red Cross negotiator, translator. The situation continues far longer than anticipated and the story is about the relationships developed during their time together.

Read it.
