Up may feel rather clich d and typical innocent civilian gets caught up in a murder that they decide to solve on their own here the story does a commendable job in offering complex reasons for Charles involvement He starts to wonder who killed Paolo mostly due to his slow realization that he s been blinded to a lot of things around him Realizing that Paolo may not have been the kind gentle artist he thought he knew Charles uestions his thoughts about his mployees and friends This is an interesting take and helps carry the story for why Charles is digging into Paolo s death Yes he s trying to figure out who did it but he s so trying to figure out if he s right or wrong in reading people This helps keeps the ultimate culprit a mystery and the tension high as the reader follows Charles first person point of view You learn uickly that Charles is not a reliable narrator since he views the world through his own bias Once realizing this Charles is scared uncertain and determined to figure out the truth He wants to know if he s really been so blind for so long or is someone fooling him The cast is well characterized and given good depth Charles comes across as an interesting mix of innocence na vet and ambivalence He is the impetus for a lot of his own issues which he slowly comes to realize Buffeted with his almost rose colored glasses he s ignored reality and coming to grips with that harshness changes him The romance between Antony and Charles is rushed although there is dynamic chemistry Their scenes together are xplosive on many levels and show some of the best use of subtly description and conversation Charles wild ideas towards Antony cause a lot of passion and Malakai (Wicked Games, emotion both good and bad These scenes arespecially nice to give tension and fear as Charles realizes he can t simply accuse random people of his wild assumptions Their instant passion is asy to believe although Antony s later actions feel scripted and less authentic I didn t believe their asy resolution but as that s not the focus I could ignore that honestly The great descriptive prose gives the book an interesting appeal It has a languid writing yet the pace feels uick and interesting It never slows down or gets boring and the Celtic Fire (Rogue Angel, ending is clever andxplosive The final culprit offers a brilliant The Family Plan explanation of themotional physical and psychological reasons for the murder and the A Family Practice entire scene is fraught with tension and drama The only downside to this is what I felt to be a totally clich contrivance I don t want to give too many spoilers and I don t consider this a huge one but skip over if you don t want to read it the villain confesses all This didn t make much sense with the complex personality afforded the culprit Either they re anmotional wreck or a cunning genius and really they are portrayed as both yet their final actions didn t support this fully I found it to be an A Doctor in Her Stocking (From Here to Maternity easy way to wrap up the mystery and frankly that contrivance is annoying in murder mysteries Yet this is definitely reader dependant and some may not mind Injoyed reading the story despite this Overall I njoyed reading Blinded by Our Eyes for the great cast and compelling mystery It s not perfect but the charm of the main characters translates very well and the story sucks you in The small details carefully worded dialogue and incorporation of art crafts a great backdrop to a classic tale with a fresh spin Although the final nding bugged me I still recommend this to readers if you re looking for a solid and interesting story. Dsome sculptor with unsavory ties to Paolo Charles is unsettled by Antony's forceful nature but irresistibly attracted to his passion and his artWhen the For Better and Worse evidence points toward Antony's guilt Charles is thrown intomotional turmoil Has he lost his heart to a kille.
