Book Review: The Art Forger (Quite Good!)


The Art Forger, B. A. Shapiro

Really interesting, strong female character? Check. Fascinating look into the world of counterfeit art? Check. Suspense, drama, this book really had it all and I found it immensely enjoyable. Kirkus noted that it was a stronger on process than on plot, but the process was so fascinating that I didn’t mind that yes, one could poke some holes in the plot if one were feeling pokey, but I was too interested in the descriptions of painting, copying a great painter’s work exactly, and the main character’s internal ethical struggle  to worry about that. 3.5 Stars.
