An overall entertaining story, that was rich with details about the art world and processes of oil painting. I knew nothing about this subject prior to reading the book, so I can't say if it's accurate, but the level of detail makes me think that it is. I learned something. The story seems a bit contrived at the end, but kept me listening!
This is a relatively short read that kept me riveted until the end and left me thinking about it long after. It's always good to hear different viewpoints of events and to hear opinions other than your own. Highly recommend this book!
Excellent writing and a solid story. The narrator almost put me to sleep sometimes--either his tone of voice or maybe the long sections of description in the story. Worth a listen, though. Several passages in the book that I wish I would have written down as things to remember about life--well said and so true!
Tried, but could not get into this bizarre and eventually too disturbing story. I did finish it with gritted teeth, to see how it ended, but the ending was nothing great either. This book was not for me and I usually like stories about quirky characters, strange settings, and even "disturbing" or mature topics. Not recommended.
Historical fiction that is sad, but well worth the listen. An engrossing story and good writing make this book very good, even though the story is serious and sad.
Easy to listen to story that was entertaining and engrossing, even though quite unbelievable. Still enjoyed it, and would recommend it especially for someone who graduated from high school in the late 80's/early 90's. Captures this "era" well!
