    1.

    2. As I work my way through this series, Andrea Camilleri is quickly becoming one of my favorite crime fiction authors, and Salvo Montalbano one of my favorite characters How can you not like him He s grumpy, cantankerous, and crabby and yet he has a compassionate side He lives for the best, most delectable food, and although flawed in many ways, he has an incredible handle on human nature The Snack Thief is number three in this series, and I wasted absolutely no time after Terra Cotta Dog to start [...]

    3. This takes the prize My all time favorite Montalbanod as usual, when I really like something, it s harder to write about it D habitude, I retreat into quotations So here goesClementina Vasile Cozzo makes her first appearance a minor character but both admirable and spicy For decades the respectable people here did nothing but repeat that the Mafia was no concern of theirs but only involved the people involved in it But I used to teach my pupils that the see nothing, know nothing attitude is the [...]

    4. Tercero que leo del inspector Montalbano y, de momento, el mejor El que m s me ha gustado, quiero decir.Como en anteriores se mezclan dos investigaciones que tiene poco que ver o no Y tenemos a Montalbano en estado de gracia disfrutando con las comidas, manipulando las pesquisas y a sus superiores, peleando con sus compa eros de oficina impagable Catarella y peleando su relaci n con Livia Y entre unas cosas y otras va descubriendo detalles que le llevan a resolver la trama pero de esa forma tan [...]

    5. Rating 4 of fiveAmbiguity is a highly valued and well tolerated state in Italy Likewise Japan It makes so much of the insane, illogical world the Italians have created and laughingly called a government and a social fabric function, this ability to be than one thing at one time.Immigrants, seldom from high ambiguity tolerant climes, screw things up mightily Karima certainly does, that Tunisian house cleaner cum sex worker She thinks she s moved to a place away from the stark complexities she co [...]

    6. A wonderful series, growing in skill with each volume, but volume three marks the point of oversentimentality and plotiness when Camilleri realized he was not LaCarre As the absurdity and freedom of style grow, Camilleri reaches his full abilities.

    7. The Snack Thief is the third in Andrea Camilleri s wonderful series starring the Sicilian detective Salvu Montalbano Here is a heady combination of crime, intrigue, sun, seafood dishes, pasta and a tangled love life Salvu is a bit snitty round his staff sometimes, but he s also great fun My brother, who s read them all in the original Italian Sicilian , says Signor Camilleri is somewhat formulaic, but I haven t yet found that What I have found is pacy writing, formed largely from dialogue and pi [...]

    8. The Snack Thief is probably my favorite Camilleri novel for one simple reason you see Salvo coming to terms with fatherhood or rather that he isn t a father It is a bittersweet epiphany that is captured in a sincere way He comes to know a young boy who is on the run from killers Read the picnic scene and the interaction between Fran ois and Salvo and it ll bring a tear to your eye Camilleri also shows Salvo s girlfriend Livia s struggling with motherhood Emotions run deep in the Montalbano serie [...]

    9. 3.5 stars The plot is extremely relevant given the current global debates around immigration The descriptions of the food prepared at the trattoria in Mazara made me salivate I d love to be able to try the authentic dishes described.The book also develops the relationship between Livia and Montalbano with an interesting addition to the family.I really enjoy the series for the authenticity of the setting and characters.

    10. The third in the Montalbano series and our Sicilian detective uses insight, compassion, intelligence and subterfuge to solve a murder of a businessman And spends considerable time eating beautifully described meals.

    11. Camilleri, Andrea THE SNACK THIEF 2003 I got about fifty pages into this book when I realized I had read it before I hate when this happens, but I had to finish it because I couldn t remember how it ended It is another in the excellent series by this author featuring Inspector Montalbano of the Sicilian police force Things go differently in Sicily than they do in the rest of the world, and nobody knows this as well as the Inspector He has to think like the criminal element, and think ahead of t [...]

    12. This is the third book in Andrea Camilleri s crime mystery series featuring Inspector Montalbano I love how cynical Montalbano can be, how he thinks things through in his own way times appearing to be heartless and mean without reason But there is always a reason Also love all the food talk Find myself wanting to cook the Italian foods that are mentioned often throughout each of Camilleri s books.Jacket notes When an elderly man is stabbed to death in an elevator and a crewman on an Italian fish [...]

    13. This is the first Montalbano book I ve read after the series was recommended to me by a friend I love Sicily, and am a great fan of Donna Leon s detective stories which are set in Venice so I was pretty sure I d like this and I did The hero, Montalbano, is a real character, a man with an appetite for good food, wine, his work and life But he is also a maverick, whose back is constantly being covered by long suffering colleagues He also does not appreciate his poor girlfriend and has terrible com [...]

    14. Camilleri sets a series of mysteries in Sicily, with Inspector Montalbano as the sleuth The books are written in colloquial Italian Sicilian and translated the writer or the translator is getting better This, the third of the series, is decidedly easier to read and entertaining than the earlier works Local color makes the books interesting The local political scene, set in the present day, is reminiscent of the common view of a Sicily in which corruption is commonplace Perhaps the author is exa [...]

    15. This is the third in the Montelbano series I just love this series It is not as dark and troubled as the Zen series character which I also enjoyed Montelbano is confused, chaotic, multi faceted, in fact very Italian with a central theme of the food Oh, the food I am recreating the dishes described in the book as far as I can And, the humour there are laugh out loud moments and moments of genius insight I enjoyed the first few TV progs and now am downloading Series 3 from itunes Highly recommend [...]

    16. I enjoy Andrea Camilleri s Inspector Montalbano stories Just good entertainment, a bit of spice and nice mysteries with interesting twists Good reads for holidays or trips

    17. Il terzo libro del commissario Montalbano mi piaciuto molto perch vi ho trovato tutta l umanit del commissario uscire fuori Si parla addirittura di matrimonio con Livia poi vedremo che ne passeranno ancora di anni prima che i due dicano S , la morte del padre, i due omicidi che sembrano distinti ma sono collegati Un Camilleri in grandissimo stato di grazia, al meglio della sua verve creativa e in cui traspare la passione ma soprattutto il divertimento con cui ha scritto quest opera Tanti ad esem [...]

    18. Il mio primo MontalbanoMi sono avvicinata tardi a Montalbano, le prime puntate tv le ho viste forse un annetto fa nonostante il successo sar che io le cose tanto strombazzate e acclamate le guardo sempre con un certo sospetto ma Montalbano e ovviamente Camilleri una garanzia Grazie a Dio che ci ha dato Camilleri, che rende alla Sicilia un immagine non pi legata soltanto a mafiosi, padri padroni e ommini gelosi E una Sicilia che io credo autentica quella che ne esce dai suoi libri, il dialetto si [...]

    19. Montalbano has been revealed in this book to be a much larger ass as he has been called by most of the people who work for him and his girl friend He is ruder, mean, nastier than he was in the first two novels, in my opinion The story itself is a interesting convoluted mystery on two planes a personal murder and international complications The story does end with Montalbano trying to make nice to his girl friend by talking about changing the nature of their relationship I am not sure I will read [...]

    20. This is the first book I ve read in this series And I will certainly be reading the rest of the series Montalbano shares some character traits with Reginald Hill s Fat Andy Dalziel Montalbano is unconventional, has his own sense of justice, and is fearless about seeing that his justice is served But I have to hope that not every book in this series ends with a case summary I definitely didn t like that aspect.

    21. Another very good book in the Inspector Montalbano series This all stems from a mysterious death in an elevator and someone being killed on a boat Quite a bit of intrigue and plotting in this book Also some interesting development between Montalbano and Livia If you haven t given this series a try, I would most definitely recommend it I look forward to reading further books in this series.

    22. Uno dei primi Montalbano Personaggio in divenire, macchiette e caratterizzazioni assenti Commissario intelligente e schietto, ma non eroico, anzi alquanto umano con le sue rosicatine e gelosie immotivate.Si legge d un fiato, gustandosi quel lessico a met fra il siciliano e il camillerese cui s affianca il gergo italiano per una fruibilit che vuol essere non terrona ma nazionale.

    23. Of the three Inspector Montalbano books, I ve now read, I prefer this one as the writing is tighter The author tends to waft off into atmospheric writing inbetween the story But this mystery has characterisation of the policeman And compassion Plus plot twists.

    24. Come tutti i libri di Camilleri fino ad ora per niente deludente scorrevole, divertente, avventuroso raccomandato al 100%

    25. Very entertaining I adore the character of Montalbano and Camilleri s witty writing The only problem I have with these books are the plots they stretch my credibility at times Definitely worth reading however for the humour.

    26. 3rd in the Inspector Montalbano series return return Montalbano is faced with something of a dilemma A fishing boat has been fired on in what the captain claims was international waters by a Tunisian patrol boat one of the crew was killed Although the boat is from a different port, it docks, with the body, in Vig
