This one is going to be an acuired taste I found myself getting completely sucked in the historical detail is immaculate and the characters are strong However this is not an action packed history In fact not a lot actually happens in this book Instead of a heavy plot we get personal politics and betrayals Both da Vinci and Salai are a mess personally and watching their big ball o' fuck up play out is highly entertaining But that is coming from someone who finds complex and layered historical epics awesome

Unter Machievelli Cesare Borgia Michelangelo Katerina a dwarf with a uniue talent and the model for the painting Mona Lisa I feel the book will be a welcome addition to the wealth of books on Leonardo this season. I don't think I care for graphic novels very much and so that's hardly this book's fault I really liked From Hell and so I've been picking up graphic novels that sound interesting every now and then from the public library This one like From Hell is historical fiction and that appealed to me and it's ueer so that appealed to me too But the central conflict between di Vinci and his protege Salai was a bit too understated for me and I think the connections between the plot and known history are a bit of a stretch

Chiaroscuro The Private Lives of Leonardo da VinciThe book is a Private Lives PDFEPUB #235 compilation of a ten issue mini series which originally ran fromIt looks at Leonardo from the view point of his ne'er do well apprentice and servant Giacomo known forever. DC Comics' Vertigo line in the early '90s must have been a fascinating place where seemingly anything could happen How else could one account for the green lighting of a massive ten issue long piece of historical fiction like this And yet the collected edition here is clearly the form it was ultimately designed for as the intricately structured plot weaves around and around touch once and again on certain times and events only illuminating the earlier allusions when the moment is dramatically right Keeping track of all the details is challenging enough when reading the work over the course of a few days; doing so over the ten months of its original publication would have been impossibleMixing biography conjecture and drama the story painted of Leonardo and his young ward Salai is a complex one filled with ambition desire politicking philosophy and sex The outlooks DaVinci and Salai voice are often bleak ones tinged with cynicism and regret but their relationships dark and otherwise are as compelling as the secrets they hold How much of it is historically accurate and how much is true I've no idea But it reads as plausibly true and keeps your attention throughout
