I love the contest and like to read the winner. I often read the others on the shortlist. Great fun.

I like the concept but there was an imbalance of dialogue and description. I would have liked more prolonged discussion.

I love this book as reminder of the portrait gallery, which I have visited many times. The writing was excellent, giving me an idea of the life of the person depicted.
