Girl with a Pearl Earring

Girl with a Pearl Earring - Tracy Chevalier

This wasn't a bad book, it just wasn't that exciting.  The talk of art was interesting, especially with respect to the grinding and mixing of pigments to make the paints used by the artist.  However, the characters all seemed kind of flat and really, how did Griet think Cornelia would relate to her when she slapped her on the first day they met, in front of her siblings!

 

At any rate, there was definitely some interesting history about the Netherlands in the 1600's, but overall the book was just ok for me.
