Neil Olson Ò 3 characters review ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ò Neil Olson review The Black Painting Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB S when Teresa arrives to find the old man dead his horrified gaze pinned upon the spot where the painting once hung As the family gathers and suspicions mount Teresa hopes to find the reasons behind her grandfather’s death and the painting’s loss But to do so she must uncover ugly family secrets and confront those who would keep them hidd. Nothing invokes sympathy than a tale about suabbling over privileged entitled rich brats suabbling over money when their eually asshole y patriarch grandfather dies unexpectedlyThe Morse cousins have been persona non grata ever since a priceless Goya painting disappeared from their grandfather s study years ago Suspicions arose between the family on the theft of the lurid self portrait of the famous artist which legend says can cause madness and insanity if you look at itWhen their grandfather calls the cousins to his estate Theresa the youngest hopes to finally make amends but that is shattered when she discovers his dead body As the hunt for the painting is revitalization and the cousins eye one another warily Theresa takes it upon herself to search for the truth of her grandfather s death revealing family secrets of her own troubled past and disturbed father and those of the Morses Talk about hating on all of the characters which I did Not only were they unlikeable not one of them was clever or witty or smart just cliche and sad A soap opera has nothing on the problems and issues of the Morse cousinsWe have the sexually promiscuous Audrey who hooks up with pretty much anyone she can take advantage of which I get because if she s been treated like an object all her life that s all she knows her very oh so fragile brother who we later learn had seen the painting which explain his numerous neuroses but we can t leave Theresa behind since madness also runs in the family after her father s suicide she has spells and conveniently had been incapacitated with such a spell on the day the painting was stolen all those years ago hey let s not also forget the pedophile uncle and caretaker the hiring of an investigator Dave who hooks up with Audrey ewwww who also loves to infantilize his name to Davie Ugh gag me with a spoonI thought The Black Painting was about you know a painting I thought it was about Goya the creepy legend and madness and insanity and his brilliant artistry It was none of those things and I feel cheatedI really disliked the author s portrayal of all the female characters not even Theresa was depicted as a strong empowered female despite having figured out where the painting was all this timeInstead I got a cast of ridiculous characters who are neither brilliant or compelling and when the painting is finally brought to light it feels less like Oh my gawd YES and like Oh my gawd is this over yet
