It may be that one needs to be more educated in the art business to fully appreciate the nuances, but the story and characters are not deeply enough developed for me. However, if you are looking for a quick listen and love Manhattan it holds its own!
Although I often enjoy Young Adult fiction, The Hunger Games is truly written for the "young adult" and was difficult for me to enjoy. I find the premise of The Hunger Games intriguing and was caught in the hype of the film, however, the writing style and simplicity of the characters left me feeling a bit disappointed. Judging it purely on the intended young adult fantasy genre, it is probably fabulous. Sadly, I may be a bit old....hate to say it.
Love Johnathan Tropper and this one doesn't disappoint. At times it is laugh out loud funnymixed with the usualy poignancy of his other novels.
I am an adult (thankfully not the only one!) who thoroughly loved this book. I enjoyed the combination of music and history woven into the story. Wish there were more of these!
I loved The Historian and found this book to be disappointing. The descriptions are beautiful and the characters interesting, however, I am not an art lover and found the book to be tiring. Particularly tiring is the character of Robert Oliver. By the end of the novel, I ceased to care about his motivations or his recovery. Because of The Historian, I will look forward to Kostova's next work despite the let down of this one.
The author and her pathetic tale irritated me early on. I do have a high tolerance for most literature but this one left me uninspired.
