As a lover of art history mysteries, I've been meaning to read Iain Pears for a while, so I purchased a batch of his novels on eBay. They're all going in my to-be-read pile. Once I've read them, I will post a short review and release them in the wild or pass them on to another reader.

I was disappointed by this book, perhaps because my expectations were too high. This is one of Pears' early works, and I hope that his more recent books are more polished. I enjoyed the plot, but the protagonist annoyed me. The book reflected some of the atmosphere of Italy, but it was hardly steeped in atmosphere. I did not feel transported to a different place.

Since this is one of Pears' early works, I will give him the benefit of the doubt and attempt some of his more recent books. I have heard wonderful things about "An Instance of the Fingerpost" and will probably read that shortly.
