Comments In Calabria

  • Philip

    3.5ish stars. Wistful and lovely in a lot of ways. The man knows his unicorns. I immediately felt for Claudio, older than his 47 years (it felt like he was 85), and I would totally live on that farm. His relationship with La Signora is beautiful and the book really shines when it's just the two of them and the farm animals. Once the people come in (humans ruin everything), the book crashes back down to earth and becomes much less exciting. Overall simple, sweet and enjoyable.

  • Mogsy (MMOGC)

    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2017/02/07/With the deft touch of a master storyteller, Peter S. Beagle weaves a strong thread of mythology into this gorgeous and emotional tale about love, sacrifice, and courage. Reading In Calabria is like stepping through a veil and into a dream, crossing into that secret and magical place where everyday life comes face to face with the fantastical. It’s an unforgettable, stunning experience.In a small village nestled in the peaceful and sce [...]

    Claudio Bianchi is a rural Italian who's gone out of his way to assure his solitude. He hangs out with his dog and his goat, and his social contact is often limited to the mailman who drops off the junk adverts. But then, one day, a unicorn appears on his land. Bianchi, a secret poet, is perhaps the ideal type of person to appreciate the magical beast with his combination of rustic earthiness and appreciation of beauty. He wants to keep the creature's secrets and to help as he can with what she [...]

  • Margaret

    Hmm. I'm having a hard time deciding on a rating with this novel (more like a novella in length).Claudio Bianchi owns a farm in the small Italian village of Calabria. He's grumpy, likes his privacy, and writes poems he shares with no one. In his late forties, his only friend is a young postman who comes a few times a week to deliver the mail. Oh, and his goat. Two things converge to break his comforting privacy: a pregnant unicorn appears on his farm, and the postman's younger sister starts deli [...]

  • Nikki

    Received to review via Netgalley; publication date 14th February 2017In Calabria is a quiet sort of story. It has dramatic moments, certainly, but those weren’t what will stick in my mind in the slightest. What will stick in my mind is Claudio’s quiet care for the unicorn, his moments of inspiration, and his love for Giovanna. He opens up, going from old curmudgeon with a heart of gold to a man who loves, who is brave, who will put himself on the line — and it’s because of the unicorn.It [...]

    4.5 starsUnicorns come to Calabria. Not once upon a time in an imaginary land, but now, in the 21st century, a beautiful unicorn comes to a run-down farm on a hillside in Calabria, South Italy, and settles in. The farm owner, a lonely hopeless man, shuns the technology of his times. He ekes out his meager existence from the land and takes care of his few animals, when he witnesses the miracle of the unicorn. The strange, un-earthy creature gives a new meaning to his life, opens his eyes and his [...]

  • Tracey

    Like most people who are able to read and enjoy fantasy, I have a tremendous amount of respect for Peter S. Beagle. That's not to say I'm a real fan, however; he's a remarkable writer, and uses language like a virtuoso uses a violin, but I've just never warmed to him. And In Calabria is a perfect example of why. It's a beautiful book. The characters are marvelous. The intrusion of the rare and beautiful into the life of a reclusive and misanthropic man is intense and utterly real. But, for me, t [...]

  • The Captain

    Ahoy there me mateys! I received this fantasy eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. So here be me honest musings . . .So did ye know that Peter S. Beagle has written another awesome unicorn tale? Well, now ye do. If ye don't know who Peter S. Beagle is then go and find a copy of the last unicorn and read it immediately; it's one of the best books of all time. Then watch the animated movie for good measure. So when I saw that there was another unicorn tale, I had to read it.I foun [...]

  • wishforagiraffe

    A short book, but not exactly a quick read, Beagle's second new book in less than a year has some familiar themes (the transience of immortal beings, their impact on humans, how love shapes people) and a completely new setting. I think that this book NEEDED to be set in Calabria, a remote part of Italy where our main character lives much as his forebears did for generations, and in doing so, the setting absolutely became one of the most important characters in the book. I was pleased with the st [...]

  • Melanti

    This is really more like 3.5 but I'm rounding up since I like Beagle's work in general. This isn't quite as polished and cohesive a work as his Summerlong, which I read earlier this year. Most of it works together very well - it's a simple, quiet tale about a cranky, reclusive man who has to adjust to a lot of extra social interaction after a unicorn takes up residence on his remote farm.But this quiet tale is somewhat marred by some suspenseful action towards the end of the book. Those frenetic [...]

  • Maggie Gordon

    Oh Peter S Beagle once again you have written a story that normally I would have no interest in and managed to make me love it. In Calabria is about unicorns, so fans of The Last Unicorn will probably jump on it. However, I should warn readers that the two books are quite different. The Last Unicorn is a more traditional fantasy, and In Calabria is a magic realism story where unicorns most certainly exist, but the world is ours with little bit of magic. That being said, it's still an excellent b [...]

    3.5 stars - Metaphorosis ReviewsClaudio Bianchi is a grumpy, lonely farmer and poet, whose only visitor is Romano Muscari, the mailman. Until suddenly a unicorn turns up on the farm, involving Bianchi, Muscari, and Muscari's gentle sister in situations they'd never imagined.Peter S. Beagle seems to have a thing for unicorns. There's his most famous book, The Last Unicorn, and a handful of others. Now, In Calabria brings the unicorns back again.There's nothing really new here; we've seen this sam [...]

    You know a dude wrote the book when the woman 23 years younger than the man initiates a sexual relationship. Other than that, I enjoyed the book. Good beach read.

  • Jeremy

    Great things come in small packages! Don't go in expecting straight fantasy, even vaguely in the realm of the author's classic 'The Last Unicorn.' Here is something quite different. This subtle and lyrical short novel is so many things: magical and ordinary, simple and profound, rough and loving, mysterious and frank. Mr. Beagle lays down such bare emotion that you cannot help but savor his story, characters, and writing. I'd especially recommend for readers who have experienced some of life's h [...]

  • kari

    The language is exquisite, the exoticization of Calabria isn't. And I'm creeped out by the frequency with which Beagle writes romance between elderly men and very young women.

  • Juushika

    A farmer's prosaic, solitary life is disrupted by the appearance of a unicorn. Beagle has a phenomenal eye for "it is not the same thing, of course, but still it is"--for moments where the specific meets the metaphorical, imprecisely but profoundly. The plot doesn't always live up to that--the intrusion of the modern world is intentional but still unwelcome and makes for a literal, overlarge conflict; the romance fares somewhat better--but there's an abundance of beautiful scenes and the end is [...]

  • LindaW

    A short quick read. I liked it, but didn't love it. Somehow the reality of the modern day setting interfered with the lovely fantasy of a unicorn deciding your isolated farm is the perfect place to hang out. Word gets out, people of all ilks show up to see the unicorn, but of course they never do so they all gradually lose interest. Except the bad guys, the "monsters", who will do anything to get what they want - the unicorns. There is a showdown and magical things happen, both good and bad, dep [...]

  • Janice

    I am a long-time, unabashed fan of Peter S. Beagle. I first read The Last Unicorn in the summer of 1968. My original copy of the book is older than my husband. I've lost track of how many time's I've read it. I read it for comfort, for hearts-ease, and to revisit old friends.I've enjoyed most of Beagle's other books too. Here's another unicorn book of his. But it's mostly about finding love and wonder and a bit of redemption at any age.I agree with another reviewer that Bianchi seems older than [...]

  • Coolcurry

    As a new unicorn story by the acclaimed Peter S. Beagle, I had high expectations for In Calabria. Unfortunately, this novella didn’t do much for me.For many years, Claudio Bianchi has lived alone on his farm in Southern Italy, writing poetry and tending to his three cows and other animals. Then one morning, he discovers a unicorn has arrived at his farm. The arrival of the unicorn will change Claudio’s life forever.The focus of In Calabria is Claudio Bianchi. He’s cut himself off from othe [...]

  • Mary Catelli

    Beagle returns to the subject of unicorns for a very different take. For one thing, this one happens in modern Italy. An aging, cranky farmer on a hillside, who only speaks with the post man on a regular basis, raising vegetables and keeping his animals and (secretly) writing poetry -- a life drawn in loving detail -- when one morning he walks out and the unicorn is there.This leads onward, involving helicopters, the postman's sister who has learned to drive and take his route, the fortune-telle [...]

  • Deborah Ross

    Claudio Bianchi, a crusty not-so-old hermit, farms an aging plot of land in rural Southern Italy. At first glance, he is not very prepossessing; he’s crotchety, battered, and solitary. He also has a secret: he writes poetry. One day a unicorn appears on his land, and she too has a secret, one that will forever transform their lives. Like everything else by Peter S. Beagle I’ve ever read, this short work brims with earthy magic and tenderness. He has the ability to take a character who at fir [...]

  • J.A. Ironside

    ARC provided by Edelweiss in exchange for an honest reviewThis is classic Beagle bearing many of his hall marks not least of which a story in which the mundane comes face to face with the fantastical. The unicorn is a powerful symbol of purity, healing and wildness and here, in a magical realism context, it is used beautifully to reflect the inner life of the main characters, especially cantankerous misanthrope Claudio Bianchi. I did not expect to be so charmed by the love story woven into the p [...]

  • Andrea Blythe

    In Calabria presents a lovely story of an ornery old farmer and unicorns who choose to take up residence on his land. A miraculous event that unsettles his quiet life as visitors come from far and wide to get a taste of the miraculous themselves. While it did not quite have the same level of wonder for me as The Last Unicorn, this was beautiful in its own way.

  • Paul

    In the 1970's, the first book I read about Unicorns was the author's "The Last Unicorn." This book is also about Unicorns, and an old man who lives in Calabria, the toe of the boot of Italy. It is a small book, and it tells its story exactly as it needs to be told. What do you do, when you find a unicorn eating weeds in your garden? What if you tell no one? What if others find out anyway? What do you do?

  • Debs

    I liked it - it was very simple, but beautiful. There was a clumsy grace to Claudio that I found quite endearing.

  • David

    Beagle is amazing. This book, though short, had a very large mythical message. So many layers and nuances. I loved it.

  • Nancy

    I wanted to like this short novelbut it was really just okay. The characters didn't engage me, didn't like Claudio and I really didn't care about his romance with his mailman's sister. The unicorn didn't even peak my interest. Thankfully it is short, but read some of the other reviewsme of those who loved the story, it just didn't do anything for me.

  • Brice James

    It's like "The Last Unicorn," only the unicorn doesn't speak, and there's sex. Among the named characters, there are more animals than humans. It'll enchant your face off.
