The lowest point reached by De Carlo in his whole career as a novelist.
This novel is able to defeat even "Treno di panna" (Cream Train) in ugliness and believe me it's such a difficult task.
If you want to demolish Andea De Carlo's way of writing I suggest you to take this book as the key proof.
While if you're kind of fans of this author just take his "Tecniche di seduzione" (Seduction techniques) or "Due di due" (Two of two?) and I'm pretty sure you won't be disappointed by them.
