The almost-true tale of how the tomato came to 16th century Italy and the forbidden love between Davido, a Jewish tomato farmer, and Mari, a beautiful Catholic girl. But it's not only Davido and Mari who have secrets of the heart. Everyone around them yearns for something--from Davido's grandfather, who tenderly cultivates the tomato plant he stole on his voyages with Columbus, to Mari's villainous stepfather, whose eye is trained on his stepdaughter's virginity and his neighbor's land. Caught in the midst of these passions and machinations is a village full of eccentrics who speak in rhyme, celebrate the Feast of the Drunken Saint, and live a life untouched by the passage of time. The schemes and dreams of these men and women are about to change as what is forbidden becomes too delicious to resist. Tradition, religion, and good taste collide in a story about the courage to pursue love and tomato sauce at all costs.… (mere)

I do not know where I picked this book up nor why because I do not even like tomatoes! It just looked and sounded interesting. Well, it was a great read, full of comedy, family love and tragedy, wonderful characters that you just have to love! The whole time I was reading I kept visualizing this as a Mel Brooks comedy. I would love to see this made into a movie. The end just leaves you feeling so good I had to give it 5 stars. ( )

Tantalizing, irreverent, delicious, quirky and thoroughly enjoyable. ( )

This is a most unusual novel. Set in 15th century Tuscany, it's a tale of love, lust, food and life. It features broad and bawdy comedy, poignant drama, rhyming dialogue (said to be in imitation of the peasant dialect of the place and time), random Italian words and phrases, commedia dell'arte elements, authorial asides, sensual descriptions of the joys of eating a tomato and creative explanations for the origin of foods such as tomato sauce and pizza.

I've noted that the book polarises opinion. Goodreads reviewers seem to either love it or hate it. I fall into the former camp. Although I thought the narrative dragged just a little bit in the middle (although that could have been because of my mood and not because of the writing), there was lots in Schell's writing to make me smile and enough in the plot to make me want to know how it turned out. The descriptions of food were a definite plus, although for reasons which I won't go into here, I may never look at a vat of homemade tomato sauce in quite the same way again!

While I found the novel a very enjoyable read, I can understand why it doesn't have universal appeal. I don't think it's possible to predict which readers will like the book, so I won't take on the responsibility of recommending it. Readers will know whether they are going to like it by the end of the first chapter. For my part, I'm glad I read a GR friend's enthusiastic review, because otherwise this novel would never have come my way. (Thanks Tracey!) ( )

Tomato Rhapsody was fun, fun, fun. There were so many laugh out loud, tongue in cheek parts. I really enjoyed it. The novel written as a play in the making was a genius approach and the little tidbits of history were fun if not hilarious. (knock on wood...oh my) Just a great fun book. ( )
