Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier
Girl with a Pearl Earring

bakurabi, September 24, 2009

This book is honestly one of, if not the, worst book I've ever been forced to read for school, and I've read some pretty bad books. The plot, if you could even call it that, was so monotonous, that I often realized that I'd read the same line five times already without noticing. Also, the dialogue is so bland, the book would be better without it. If given the choice, I would have put this book down after the first page or two because there is nothing that would make you want to keep reading.
