2.0 out of 5 stars good in parts, 25 Jan. 2015

This review is from: The Miniaturist (Kindle Edition)
This is a mixed book, the description of culture is interesting and well researched but the story is not really a story so it becomes dull.

2.0 out of 5 stars predictable, 12 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although the writing flows well, the plot creaked and the events were very predictable and not very credible. The main problem is that when all characters are unattractive, it's hard to stay engaged enough to care what happens to them.

A good read, convincing characters and plot lines
