Read in January, 2012

Sometimes I liked this novel. Every so often it made me think, but not so often about events in the book. Then again, there aren't many events in the book. Banville has a good eye, good vocabulary, good turn of phrase, but the lack of plot made it hard for me to care about the characters. The supporting characters remain as elusive as the figures in a painting that the narrator is examining. Perhaps that was the point. If so, for me, it didn't carry the novel.
