Burton, Jessie. The Miniaturist. Book Review.

I really wanted to like this book. I like historical novels and I love miniatures, especially houses that are replicas of real buildings. I read to page 106 but just could not continue. The pace was slow, the characters had potential but failed to hold my interest, and the plot was threadbare.

Because I did not finish this book, I cannot give it a fair rating. Another reader may make it to the end and love it. I just couldn’t manage it.
