    (15)

    Georgio Vasari's original vision of the arts was to see the artist as divinely inspired. He describes the lives of 45 artists, including Giotto, Brunelleschi, Fra Angelico, Botticelli, da Vinci, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Titian, with striking immediacy conveyed through character sketches, anecdotes, and detailed recording of conversations.

    Gregory says: "Interest to the artist, as well as the historian"
    "Can't get through the whole thing.."
    Overall

    I was so disappointed in this one it has made me create my first review.. The narrator's pauses don't allow it to flow smoothly. Sometimes her nose makes noises. Her voice itself is nice. But I also don't like how there are many statements or quotes, some lengthy, that are not translated into English. I have yet to listen completely. As for the substance of the book, the issues listed above stop me from enjoying it.
