I did like this book....I can't say I think it measured up to The Historian, which really kind of blew me away...and I'm not someone whose all caught up in Dracula stuff, but that book was so atmospheric and subtly chilling. This just seemed to be a very level book...no real highs, it just kind of plodded along. I was intrigued by the main character, pretty sure I would have fallen for him myself....I enjoyed all the art references, since I'm a painter myself...although Impressionism is not my thing at all. What I was thinking would happen in the end, or the reason for Robert Oliver's obsession...didn't really seem to warrant his condition...still I had no problem finishing the book. It just was very level...if that makes any sense.
