The portraits made me re-evaluate how I’ve imagined the characters from the books I’ve already read and I know I’ll be returning to this book each time I read more of the novels involved. Although this book takes a very short time to read, it is a great coffee table book to flick through. I know I will cherish this book for a long time.
