This is Irving Stone's powerful and passionate biographical novel of Michelangelo. His time: the turbulent Renaissance, the years of poisoning princes, warring popes, the all-powerful Medici family, the fanatic monk Savonarola. His loves: the frail and lovely daughter of Lorenzo de Medici; the ardent mistress of Marco Aldovrandi; and his last love - his greatest love - the beautiful, unhappy Vittoria Colonna. His genius: a God-driven fury from which he wrested the greatest art the world has ever known. Michelangelo Buonarotti, creator of David, painter of the Sistine ceiling, architect of the dome of St Peter's, lives once more in Irving Stone's marvellous book.

Würden Sie es noch mal mit einem anderen Hörbuch mit Arthur Morey versuchen?

Even in the most upbeat conversations Mr Morey sublimly captures at least the agony. After every Dialog you expect Michel to either cry and sob or hear a sigh and a plop. Hard to unhear and really dive in to the story. But lots of interesting content, still worthwhile...

One of the best books I've ever read!

The amount of detail, the description of the life in Florence and Rome, the lists of people, pieces of art and artists, absolutely fantastic!
