    " Just re-read, while visiting Florence..I still loved it "

    " I read this for extra credit in high school. Only later did I learn there was a film which might have helped me more...but it was a decent book. It dragged in parts, but there was quite a bit of drama between Michelangelo and the various popes. Frustrated and demanding artist vs. even more demanding and egomaniacal religious figures. "

    " It took me long time to read this, but it was great. I went to Europe shortly after and saw several of Michelangelo's sculptures. It gave me a whole new respect for him as an artist. Definately worth reading "

    " I read this book first as a college student in the late 1960s in a Reader's Digest Condensed Book format and really enjoyed it. It needed a lot of condensing because the "real" book is close to 800 pages long. After my trip to Italy--to Rome and Florence--last March, I was inspired to order a copy and finally managed to read it all. I learned a lot about Michelangelo and his contemporaries and wished that I had read the book prior to my trip. Stone's research was amazing. "
