I've *ahem* been to Prague (nbd) but I still had some trouble visualizing what Matthew and Diana were seeing when they go back to the 1590 Holy Roman Empire. Thankfully, Deborah Harkness has a Flicker page dedicated to the monuments and details our star-crossed lovers would have seen. Check it out!
The man goes by many names, but as a vampire, Matthew Clairmont's looks are consistent(ly amazing!) Harkness describes the 1,500 year old wearh as around 37 years old (at the time of his re-birth), 6'6", with dark hair and green/hazel eyes. Which actor do you think would do the best job of portraying Matthew's internal struggle and piercing gaze?[Vote here!]nt
Well I'm half way through book 2 (no spoilers, promise!) and already dreading the ending. I can't imagine how Diana and Matthew (almost wrote Bella and Edward, my bad!) are going to figure this stuff out. I'm really enjoying Harkness' detailed description of some of the alchemy experiments though. Anyone ever tried it out?
