I rather expected more from this having read An Instance of the Fingerpost, The Dream of Scipio, and The Raphael Affair. Put bluntly I found this pedestrian for the most part. I did enjoy some of the more lively interchanges between the character but the mystery itself as well as the interplay amongst the crew in Italy left much to be desired in my opinion. However it is a nice fluffy read for summer and I suspect many will find this just to their tastes.
I recommend spending extra to get the illustrated version. It's well worth being able to see all the art that it talks about in the book as it's such an integral part of the story to make it credible.
Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side - this is it ... Still at it and I know it(His words) will go on, like He said.
I was sadly disappointed. It started off well and I was excited to see where it was going but the last two stories threw me off of the whole experience. I went in with no expectations and was still disappointed.
