    DNF One look at my book list would reveal I love books about artists Not this one I found the writing style clumsy and the story seedy and uninspiring I finally gave up about 40% into the book It may have been free as an Prime First Read but the cost in time of finishing it is just too high.

    PicasoThis I enjoyed because it was about Picaso an artist I love I had not heard much about his early life His struggle to start painting was immense His young life was hard, so he had the blue period It was a nice change of pace.
