Resenhas

A sequel to The Miniaturist (you'd be missing a great deal of the backstory if you haven't read that first), and with most of the same major problems as that one, namely a complete lack of resolution (or even progression) of the miniaturist storyline.

This book never fully grabbed me and as a result I felt that it was too long. Around 60% through I just didn't care anymore, but I was curious about the Miniaturist so I pushed through. It was not worth it. The book is well written, and I can see the appeal, it just didn't work for me.

Okay, but only just barely. I needed a bit more explanation of what was supposed to be the main plotline of the story, the miniaturist ... overall, meh.

Charming little story, although I have never idea what the point of the miniaturist was.
