    Story
    (44)

    Milan, 1496 and 44-year-old Leonardo da Vinci is in a state of professional uncertainty and financial difficulty. For 18 months he has been painting murals in both the Sforza Castle in Milan and the refectory of the convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie. The latter project will become The Last Supper, a complex mural that took three years to complete on a surface 15 feet high by 20 feet wide. He had never attempted a painting so big, and had no experience with fresco.

    What did you like best about Leonardo and the Last Supper? What did you like least?

    The book was wonderful, as all King's books are.


    What didn’t you like about Mark Meadows’s performance?

    But the reader reminded me of old-time Hollywood film stars shouting at the microphone, which is what he did, in the same intonation, throughout this not-short book. It would have been better, also, to be read by someone who understands the Italian language accents and intonations.


    Do you think Leonardo and the Last Supper needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Oh, yes, most definitely, because Leonarodo is an interesting person and King is such a capable researcher/writer.
