The Miniaturist
The Miniaturist | Jessie Burton
Sold in over thirty territories, this evocative debut in the tradition of Sarah Dunant, Tracey Chevalier and Emma Donoghue is set among a wealthy, dysfunctional family living in Amsterdam in 1686 during the decline of the Dutch Golden Age"There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed . . ."On an autumn day in 1686, eighteen-year-old Nella Oortman knocks at the door of a grand house in the wealthiest quarter of Amsterdam. She has come from the country to begin a new life as the wife of the illustrious merchant trader Johannes Brandt, but instead she is met by his sharp-tongued sister, Marin. Only later does Johannes appear and present her with an extraordinary wedding gift: a cabinet-sized replica of their home. It is to be furnished by an elusive miniaturist, whose tiny creations mirror their real-life counterparts in unexpected ways . . .Nella is at first mystified by the closed world of the Brandt household, but as she uncovers its secrets she realizes the escalating dangers that await them all. Does the miniaturist hold their fate in her hands? And will she be the key to their salvation or the architect of their downfall?Beautiful, intoxicating and filled with heart-pounding suspense, The Miniaturist is a magnificent story of love and obsession, betrayal and retribution, appearance and truth.

I felt a little deflated after reading this... It felt like a very "Negative Nancy" kind of story line and then got worse! It held my attention rather well, but it didn't leave me feeling anything but sad.

It has a very unique plot, and well formed characters. It's also very thoroughly researched for the time period. I just wish there were more cause for joy. A happier finish... It seemed, to me anyway, that in the end everyone loses.

Caroline2 I know what you mean, I was underwhelmed by this one too. 3mo
MrsBibliophile It just seemed so, apathetic. Which is disappointing because it had such potential. 3mo

Okay, so on the way to the bank I passed the charity shop. Only I didn't pass. I went in and this book insisted on coming home with me. I explained that I already had a huge pile of books that hadn't been read yet but it still insisted on coming home with me. After paying 99p here I am with this beautiful hardback book 😊

Another #PrettyBooks for me. #30JuneBooks
I‘m surprised to see such opposite reviews on this! Probably because I started it before all the hypes set in & so I wasn‘t expecting anything while reading it, but was immediately drawn by its beautiful writing and the setting of the story, a period fiction with a little mystery & sadness. A beautiful cover too
Which one are you, love it?Or hate it?

I completely bailed out from this one. I've heard such nice reviews about this book. Such nice reviews. And I was so excited to read this one. But, this one was so bland for me. I've seen so many people love it, but this just didn't click with me. I expected it to be dank and dark. I read the summary after bailing out, and found my decision of bailing out to be apt.
Any reviews, people?
Can't even rate it, Sorry.

Again I'm underwhelmed by Jessie Burton, and I'm beginning to think that perhaps she's not the author for me. "The Miniaturist" started well but couldn't really keep me interested and its 400+ pages dragged on quite a lot which definitely didn't help the situation. I didn't hate it but I won't be recommending this book to anyone in a hurry - 2 stars.

My full review is up on my blog now ?

A strange story of love, consequences, life & death. It compels you & fascinates. Woven through the story is the strange influence of the miniaturist.

IndoorDame I‘ve read The Miniaturist (which I HIGHLY recommend) and Ink and Bone (which I enjoyed but didn‘t leave much of a lasting impression with me). The Witch of Willow Hall, Once Upon A River A Secret History of Witches, and the Anatomist‘s Wife have all been on my TBR for a while. I‘ve never heard of the Familiars or Closed Casket but they look awesome! 10mo
IndoorDame By the way, how do you tag books in comments? 10mo
MarriedtoMrT @IndoorDame Touch the little ribbon looking thing under the comment text box when you‘re composing (next to skull). You can only tag one book in a comment and it shows at the end of any text so it‘s not always useful. 10mo

I liked this but did not love it. The story is fine overall but weaves too much into a short time span and ultimately I glance at lives of characters without feeling I know them. I found myself enjoying it when i read it but not rushing to pick up. I am certain many will love it but ultimately it's a bit dull for me.

I'd heard such food reviews of this and I finally got around to reading it. I thought the writing was very nice but it was so slow and boring! I enjoyed it when I was reading it but it didn't make me rush to pick it up again (hence with it took me so long to read it) I wasn't sad to finish it and found it so long and drawn out

I was very impressed with this book! I‘ve read some reviews by readers who felt that the mystery of the character of the miniaturist wasn‘t adequately revealed and/or was anticlimactic. I‘ve also read that some readers felt this book didn‘t live up to the hype, but that wasn‘t the case for me. I felt that the character development was very well done, and the writing was exquisite. Highly recommended!

It took six or seven tries to get this shot of #Chloe with this book. I am not actually DNFing because book club, but I want to run away from it. The prose is so PURPLE. I read my husband several passages aloud to highlight how silly some of it feels... I don‘t know, it‘s a bestseller, and I‘ve read some wordy stuff I‘ve loved. But this book is like swimming through peanut butter. #catsoflitsy #tuxedokittiesoflitsy @MinDea

Overall I loved this book & the very feel of it. It was good to have some historical fiction set in the Netherlands, & in the late 17th century. By the sound of the book a very controlling community you didn‘t want to get on the wrong side of. A few shocks in here especially towards the end. I did this as an audiobook, which was perfect, and read by the author. If anything a bit slow in places and the very end of the book left me wanting more.

I enjoyed this book! I didn‘t love how all of the plot points ironed out, but the atmosphere was fantastic — I love how you‘re never quite sure if there‘s magic swirling around you — and the characters so vivid. Now off to watch the Masterpiece adaptation!
