44.) Mary Gentle, Ilario: The Lion's Eye

I love the worldbuilding, the various physicians, the hot eunuch and the not-dead, not-gay dad, and the premise of painters inventing realism makes me wish I loved the rest of the novel, but the wandering tenses, plethora of exclamation points, and abrupt transitions gave me problems. And Ilario is so desperately too stupid to live that I kept wanting to shake and shake and shake him/her.
