Exhaustive. Readers with an interest in art history or in Leonardo da Vinci are those most likely to enjoy reading Ross King’s book, Leonardo and the Last Supper. King has a lively writing style, and I found myself drawn into the story of Leonardo’s life and how he went about creating this particular work of art. King’s exploration of the subject is comprehensive, and he approaches it from a variety of perspectives. For me, the book was more exhaustive than satisfying. I learned a thing or two, but the path to that outcome was more tedious than I would have liked.
Rating: Three-star (It’s ok)
