The Leopard - Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa Referred to in That Summer in Sicily: A Love Story, but do I like the text style?

Thanks to Laura I listened to this on BBC. I totallly enjoyed myself. If felt like going to a theater, not like reading a book. As a theater experience I would give it 4 stars, but as a book just 3. I give it more for the listening b/c the experience was great. The content of the book I felt was less amazing. I am glad I listened rather than read it.
