Kind of interesting, but read like a young-teen novel. I had picked it up to learn about Casanova's other accomplishments listed in the teaser, but the details included from the autobiography bogged down the narrative. I couldn't bring myself to continue after about a quarter of the way through.

Below expectation. Many long quotes of Casanova's original autobiography. Few real critical analysis of Casanova's message.
