This is such a page-turning book, yet filled with [some] melancholy! I love this book so much; it is like you're living in 2 legendary Painter brothers' lives through a tragedy. Many ups and down throughout the book. I'd recommend this to everyone (ages 11-13+) who would enjoy reading a biography of 2 famous, yet astonishing Painters.

Although the simplicity of the text bothered me, it was probably chosen on purpose to match Vincent van Gogh’s painting style. It’s well research and the reader finished knowing a great deal more about the deep friendship between Vincent and his brother, Theo.

Very thorough look at the relationship between Vincent Van Gogh and his younger brother Theo. I learned so much about Vincent's art, his life, and how significant Theo's support was (emotionally, professionally, and financially). Direct quotes from letters between the brothers and the author's use of detail really helped transport me back in time. Some parts dragged for me a bit, due to the sheer amount of information, but overall, the book was very engaging.
