Rishason
The book Leporello caught my ear with the first page and never let up. Any story told from a servant's viewpoint can be delicious, but this servant shares all the tasty treats about his cunning master Don Giovanni as if sharing secrets that only the reader is privileged to hear. You realize immediately that the servant is taking you down an adventurous path of unbridled adultery and deflowering. It is a fun read that always has the reader wondering what the next female encounter will bring to the story.

I like that the females in most cases are as guilty, if not more guilty than our seducing Don who feasts on them. Here in this story, the playing field of intimacy is nothing short of a chess game, where planning strategy and laying the groundwork for attacks and/or retreats are the highlight of battle. Once the master has conquered his prey, the joy of the hunt and slaying is over. Though in some cases the prey is left breathlessly waiting and hoping to be conquered again.

The writing is done in a style that gives character to the characters. After a few words from one's lips and/or the lips of the servant Leporello describing them, you know the type of person laid before you. Leporello holds back nothing when unveiling his thoughts and descriptions to the reader. Though Don Giovanni is his master, Leporello tells the story as if he and not his master is the better man but for their stations in life. For through Don Giovanni, our servant is learning just how cruel and selfish love and those wanting to be loved can be. Well done humble and faithful servant, well done.

To eat, To enjoy, To dwell!

Took away one star for the lack of quotations and such. Like reading Jose Saramago. Great writing, but not an easy read.

William Palmer tells the captivating story of the adventures, travel, conquests, and demise of Don Giovanni. The interesting twist is that it is told from the perspective of his loyal servant, Leporello, who emulates his master, but understandably harbors a bit of jealousy. The story embodies a commendable mixture of unpredictability and inevitability. Leporello draws the reader into his tale by frequently stepping out of the story to provide his own commentary. The warm descriptions and unusual circumstances make Leporello a rewarding read.
