    This is Irving Stone's powerful and passionate biographical novel of Michelangelo. His time: the turbulent Renaissance, the years of poisoning princes, warring popes, the all-powerful Medici family, the fanatic monk Savonarola. His loves: the frail and lovely daughter of Lorenzo de Medici; the ardent mistress of Marco Aldovrandi; and his last love - his greatest love - the beautiful, unhappy Vittoria Colonna.

    Richard says: "Don't go to Italy without reading this!"
    "Great book, great story, very good reader"

    Where does The Agony and the Ecstasy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best, I'm and artist and I've listened to The Agony and The Ecstasy for years on books on tape, but tapes wore out so I ordered the audio book and am very pleased with it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    How much I identify with Michelangelo, the only difference between us is that he was a genius and a great artist, I'm not a genius and I'm only a good artist, also the historical significance.


    What does Arthur Morey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Feeling and emotion


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    After Michelangelo finished the Pieta' and his friends helped him place it, he later came back and put his name on it. The most moving part of the book to me was when he rode away. He had completed one of the greatest pieces of art ever conceived and there was no one there. He and his few friends were the only ones who knew what he had accomplished. I cry every time I get to this part in this wonderful story. I have a tear in my eye right now.
