Well, I made it through.
This book wasn't terrible. The prose was very direct (to the point of dryness), which worked in its favor for me, since I wasn't big into the subject matter. If it had been flowery and overly done I would have probably hated the book.
It's about art collecting and the politics and people that inhabit that world. I appreciated the pictures of artworks that were mentioned in the book, but I wish they had included more of them, to be honest.
I couldn't bring myself to either like or care about the main character, so I think that brought the book down for me by quite a bit.
