I can appreciated that it's hard for an actor to voice all the characters but choosing the voice of what sounds like a immature 12 year girl for the heroine of the story - a fully grown, well educated adult - was off-putting. Some of the surprises in the book, particularly the end, are telegraphed in advance. You want to yell at the character "don't be so stupid". Also, the dialogue between characters from the middle ages is full of modern catch-phrases. Still, you do a learn a little about Italian painting in the 13th, 14th an 15th centuries.

The heroine is written as weak, selfish and kind of insipid. It didn't help that narrator uses a childish little girl voice to portray her. I did like the description of famous Canadian paintings and how they resemble current landscape, though. However, it was generally so irritating that this book made me cancel my subscription.
