Very emotional, even though it was pretty easy to predict who lived/died. I also predicted the dramatic climax quite early on. Some of the sections involving Picasso were a bit distracting, as I felt it sort of stalled the narrative a bit, but I can understand why the author included them. However, this book is redeemed by the build-up and treatment of the bombing of Guernica. It was heart-rending without being distasteful. Because I cared about the characters, it was particularly harrowing.

All in all, a very good holiday read. Not one I would read again, but one I would recommend, and one I am glad that I have read.
