Read from October 08 to 10, 2013

Surprisingly feministic and wildly imaginative, this story combines the work of real famous artists and their work with various myths to create an intricate treasure hunt.

It is basically one big adventure, since the story takes place in the span of a few hours, and it is full of information and enigmas to be solved before our heroes can move on to the next piece of the puzzle that would lead them to the answers they seek. Add a fanatic mastermind who manipulates and uses troubled and/or misguided souls to achieve his goals and the mystery of his identity and motives and the result is a complex story, full of action and riddles.

The narrator of the audiobook did a great job portraying the various characters, french accents and all, and I had gone through the first half without realizing it.

An enjoyable book that makes one wonder which parts of it actually stem from true stories.
