If you love Moore because he's so funny, this isn't for you. It's nowhere near laugh-out-loud funny as his other books. If you love Moore because of quirky characters, this fits the bill. If you love the art world and historical fiction, you might not like some of the liberties taken with character's lives. If you're looking for vampires, here there be no vampires.

Now that I said all that up front, here's my actual review: it's good. The story pushes along at a good pace. There is humor but it's more of a smirk than a LOL. Toulouse-Lautrec is drawn as we expect Moore to draw his more eccenric characters, but it fits nicely with his reputation. The central mystery takes a while to figure out and has nice supernatural tones. It's fun. It's not amazing or life changing, but fun. I strongly appreciate the pictures of the famous paintings throughout.

An enjoyable read, with disclaimers. Not my favorite of Moore's (that'd be Fool), but good nonetheless.
