A tour de force
I literally did not want the book to end. I became thoroughly engaged with the main characters, Gauguin and Flora, both so obsessed with their own very different versions of paradise. I especially liked the descriptions of Gauguin's artistic process--his supposed thoughts and experiences as he painted masterpieces so familiar to us. I also relished the varied settings--France, Peru, Tahiti-- and the range of colorful characters. This book sent me straight to others by Vargas Llosa...
