    1. I probably wouldn't have finished it if I hadn't been a captive audience -- I was at a workshop for 6 hours, 5 hours of which were spent waiting for the next station. The times were different, but it's still creepy for a thirty-something guy to fall in love with a 13-year-old and then wait a few years to marry her. Also, they talk a lot about how lovely the protagonist/narrator is, and how incredible Van Eyck is for capturing her beauty. Do you SEE the face on the girl in the painting? Maybe thi [...]

    2. just enough intrigue and romance to make this an entertaining, quick read. esp because the painting really is fascinating, and I've had the opportunity to see it in person! Even though we are doing Van Eyck for our picture study right now, it has a bit too much mention of the "marriage bed" and the like for me to hand this over to my kids to read or as a family read-aloud. I'd say it's more appropriate for ages 18 and up.

    3. I picked up this book when another book by a different author with the same last name wasn't on the shelf. It looked like it had promise, but I didn't expect much. I found it to be incredibily well written. The story flowed very nicely. The main character sometimes annoyed me. She was a bit naive and I predicted which way the story would take me before I ever got there (It's kind of a Romeo and Juliet with a twist). But that was all right, because it was fun to read. I originally gave it four st [...]

    4. I was excited to find this book at a library book sale. The Arnolfini Portrait is one of my favorite paintings and I was interested to see what kind of story the author could weave with it. I was disappointed though. The story was terribly unbelievable and contained a ridiculous amount of cliches. My eyes nearly rolled out of my head when Angelo leaped up onto the convent roof to make his escape. This is one of those historic novels that places too much value on modern ideas of love and marriage [...]

    5. I picked up this book because I like to read about paintings. A viewer can Always use his imagination and it's very interesting to read the imagination of an author.The girl in the portrait is a very young girl who is promised as a bride to an older merchant who is a friend of her father.She doesn't like him and tries to run away, but she doesn't know anything about the danger that is threatening her.

    6. Harmless YA book for the 13-14 year old crowd. Based on enough hitsoric fact to not cause me to stop reading it; although, the intrigue and Romeo/Juliet theme was a bit too easy to see through. Sorry to be so critical it did its job for me--wanted to read books about Belgium,The Netherlands and Czech Republic while I traveled there.

    7. I don't normally read this type of book. I only bought it because I love the painting it is based on. I really wanted to like it, but found it hard to get into. I had a hard time believing the characterization of Giovanni Arnolfini. He just looks too grim for me to believe he was thatce? I guess? I don't know.

    8. this book is about a painting w/ a little background. This book genre is historical fiction and has a scenes of sensuality.:P
