    "I was looking for a good picaresque novel and my book club recommended The Decameron. It is a beautifully written medieval fiction by Giovanni Boccaccio that is based in the 14th century. The book illustrates the meaning of love and adventure that can be seen from a totally different perspective. "

    "This compendium of around 100 stories from the period, it is lauded as a basis for Italian literature in general is well deserved. This is the "best" as advertised."

    "So how would we know that this is the best book by an Italian author. Just because it is so old does that automatically make it the best books I am not sure about that."

    "If you are interested in Medieval times in Italy, then The Decameron is the one for you. The erotica and the historical things will not bother you a lot if you are not interested in them. A different, nice book for you if you are trying to change your reading habits."
