Wouldn't recommend this book to anyone going through marital problems but would recommend it to anyone else. Fabio and Nina are a young couple with a daughter living in Italy in the s. Fabio gets cholera and dies He is placed in the family above ground crypt quickly because of cholera being so contagious with many dying of the same thing. Yet Fabio revives in a cheap wooden casket not sure what happened. He escapes the casket and the crypt a What a great story.
He escapes the casket and the crypt and heads for home anxious to see his wife and daughter. He then discovers he has physically changed. His hair is white and he looks older. He also discovers Nina has been having an affair for quite sometime with his best friend Guido. Fabio now plots his vendetta against Nina and Guido. That this book was written by a female suprises me in that the main character, Fabio, has very negative thoughts towards all females which the author expresses throughout the book. This book would make an excellent movie.
Enjoyed it very much. View 1 comment. Jan 07, Dave rated it liked it Shelves: speculative-fiction , fiction.
Vendetta: A Story of One Forgotten
Unlike her first novel, this one makes no pretence of being true, nor does it push her religious beliefs the way her first book did. This story opens with a bang, so to speak, as the narrator announces that he is dead. It is that of Count Fabio Romani, a nobleman in Naples who was stricken with Cholera and appeared to have died, so much so that he is buried. From there, he has to fight to escape his coffin and his tomb, but before he does the latter, he discovers a great amount of riches have been stored in his family tomb, presumably by a famous thief, Carmelo Neri.
He naively believes he will return to his previous life, having been buried only one day, but that soon proves to be impossible. For one thing, his appearance is greatly changed; his hair has turned white, and his face appears thin and sick, not surprisingly considering how ill he was. However, the main obstacle proves to be his friend, Guido Ferrari, and his wife, Nina, neither of who are morning his death, but rather looking forward to being open about their love for each other, after a respectful morning period, of course.
Fabio overhears this when approaching his house, and at that point he decides to get revenge. The vast majority of the book covers his preparation and the details of his actually taking revenge on his former friend and his unfaithful wife. Count Romani never gives the reader the full details of his plan prior to its execution, so the reader gets to guess at the direction it will go, though that is not so difficult.
I'd like to be notified of new arrivals in the following categories.
From there he can try to gain the trust of Guido Ferrari, and the eye of his former wife. For that reason, I think that some may find this book far too slow in its pace. She writes paragraphs which go on for more than a page, and provides very a very detailed telling of the story. This actually worked for me though, because I found it interesting, and I think it works as well because it shows the narrators obsession with getting his revenge. As he moves forward with the execution of his plan, those whom he still loves are injured and killed, which would not be the case if he exacted his revenge quickly.
Overall, this is between three and four stars, and due to its style being somewhat old I am rounding it down to three, because I feel that many modern readers will lose patience in the reading.

This was a very depressing Gothic horror without any of the supernatural elements of Gothic storytelling.
The story starts with a young rich nobleman, happily married with a charming daughter.
He tries to help a boy with the plague and wakes up in a coffin in his family vault. The book then becomes focused on his revenge on his wife, who was having an affair. It is rather depressing, and his motives, rather ludicrous. He does seem more upset that his wife didn't actually love him, and was "false This was a very depressing Gothic horror without any of the supernatural elements of Gothic storytelling. He does seem more upset that his wife didn't actually love him, and was "false" than because of the affair with the other gentleman.
Vendetta: a story of one forgotten by Marie Corelli (2010-01-29)
I think if a man had written this it would have been appaling misogynistic crap. But coming from Marie Corelli's perspective it was quite entertaining. Not her best, or her worst, but worth reading. Jun 22, Larisa rated it it was amazing Shelves: classic. Marie Corelli has been one of my favourite authors since I read The Sorrows Of Satan, and which I have re-read few times over the last few years.
In Vendetta or the Story of One Forgotten, she uses the same style, morbid, desperate, dark. And yet, I could not help, but to feel a ray of hope throughout the whole book, hoping that the story eventually will carry a happy ending, or at least it will bring a relief to the main character in some way.
I like how she described his tormented heart by the Marie Corelli has been one of my favourite authors since I read The Sorrows Of Satan, and which I have re-read few times over the last few years. I like how she described his tormented heart by the betrayal of those he loved most. One can almost feel what it would feel like to be him.

A man who died and came back to life only to find lovers turned to traitors. A man who would give all rich man's gold for justice in return. This book is a great example of how wealth destroys people, how pride destroys one's soul. And finally, how vengeance can be just as ruthless when it comes to forgiveness.

I found an old copy of this book at an estate sale and decided to take a chance on something that sounded reminiscent of The Count of Monte Christo This book mirrors The Count of Monte Christo in many ways.
Husband, rather than fiance, "dies," finds untold riches belonging to an infamous bandit, and comes back to his wife only to find that she's been having an affair with his best friend. He I found an old copy of this book at an estate sale and decided to take a chance on something that sounded reminiscent of The Count of Monte Christo He's shattered and decides to have his revenge. Where Dumas goes into great detail connecting members of society and shading the levels of malice, guilt, complicity, indifference, and regret of those who wronged Dantes, Corelli keeps everything black and white.
