Read ↠ Girl with a Pearl Earring 108 Iam inexoravelmente para o mundo dele Mas à medida ue a rapariga se tornava parte integrante da sua obra a intimidade crescente entre ambos ia espalhando tensão e decepção na casa e aduiria a proporção de um escândalo em toda a cida. So the parts when Vermeer was actually being a painter were interesting Seeing as I slogged through this on account of a recommendation that arose from an art class lecture on Vermeer I was hoping that the art stuff would at least deliver But it s not a good sign when a book s most compelling moments revolve around two people grinding pigments And no Grinding pigments is not a euphemism for artist bangin It is uite literally referring to the detailed descriptions of how paint was made in the days before those fancy metal tubes replaced pig bladders as the paint storing vessels of choiceThis was the most predictable book I ve read in a while and that includes the two graphic novel series that are simply retelling stories I know well in a new medium I knew exactly where the plot was going within the book s first dozen pages Every subseuent thread was introduced with the subtlety of a sledgehammer and the writerly finesse of a 14 year old s first attempt at fanfiction It was also pretty obvious what stereotype everyone was going to play from his or her very first appearance There really isn t a multi dimensional character in this book I understand that the first person voice is a limited perspective by its nature and I would write it off as just that if the peripheral characters were the only flat archetypes but even the narrator doesn t carry any convincing weight Griet is the protagonist because she s the main character And because all of the characters with whom she has scuffles are inexplicably bitchy Not giving characters any real motivations not making them behave and interact believably and generally preferring to tell rather than show all contributed to making this whole book feel sloppy underdeveloped and rushed If Girl with a Pearl Earring was maybe 200 pages of really hammering out the story and its players maybe then it d be a satisfying read At least it s mercifully uick and mostly painless at its current lengthI say mostly painless because there are some groan worthy lines showcased here While pages would have maybe benefited the plot there is nothing save for a control freak editor that could have improved the prose itself I could not get past the clunky writing It didn t take me long to get violently annoyed by the author s fondness for hitting the reader over the head with the most obvious attempts at subtle foreshadowing by way of forcing too much weight on these flimsy laughably ominous one sentence paragraphs There were numerous other technical things that kept grating on me about the writing and its myriad shortcomings Among them Griet saying things like I always regretted that decision to indicate that she s looking back on a time that is very clearly written as the present not one character shows any development throughout the novel sixteen year old Griet the daughter of a tile painter somehow knows about painting and composition than Vermeer a professional artist who actually managed to garner some fame during his living years Even when the book pissed me off which was often I will admit that I never found Griet herself to be irritating maybe because I kept fantasizing about Scarlett Johansson to save my brain from oozing through my ears but I was irked at how it felt like Chevalier was Mary Sue ing her way through the character The way that every man whom Griet encountered in the whole damn book fawned over and flirted with her the way she was presented as being uneducated but naturally clever just because she sometimes spoke her mind and separated her chopped veggies by color the way Griet s family was painted as these simple sheltered little Protestants who knew nothing of the world around them there was far too much black or white for me to take anything about the book seriously I don t care enough to write about this book any So Every other gripe I have notwithstanding here are three of the book s most glaring failures Vermeer for being the central male character remains an enigma It s not that he s shrouded in an air of charming mystery but rather that his personality is nothing than a bunch of suppositions that Griet just knows about him Griet does not ever refer to Vermeer as anything other than he or him Not Once It made her sound like a starstruck teenybopper and it undermined any sense of genuine affection between the painter and his maid The similes Oh dear sweet Baby Jesus the similes I now know that I have a limited tolerance for the number of trite comparisons of faces and voices to household objects that I encounter in one novel all thanks to the time I spent reading this book

Read ↠ Girl with a Pearl Earring 108 No século XVII em Delft uma própera cidade holandesa tudo tinha uma ordem pré estabelecida Ricos e pobres católicos e protestantes patrões e criados todos sabiam o seu lugar uando Griet foi trabalhar na casa do pintor Johannes Vermeer. Another one of my wife s recommendations I read a lot of books that way I picked it up from the bookshelf the night we came back from seeing the film with Scarlett Johansonn and Colin Firth I loved the movie it was just so incredibly sumptuous and was curious to know the story in the novel which I knew from experience and from my wife s continuous comments would be different detailed I was rightChevalier has won a place in my heart and bookshelf Her novels are well crafted simple to follow and addictive Girl was no exception The story of the maid Griet in 1600 s Delft Holland was amazing in its simple prose and endless emotion Completely fictional no one knows who exactly were the models for any of Vermeer s paintings it nonetheless possesses a veracity that makes you believe Chevalier found the long lost journal of this unknown woman and wrote her novel based on it The details of seventeen century Holland are rich you feel you are walking the canal lined streets of Delft smelling the pungent scents of the Meat Market holding your breath as Vermeer paints next to you Griet is a wonderful protagonist taking you into her world yet retaining a few secrets for herself especially where Vermeer is concernedGirl is one of those novels that truly invites you and almost kidnaps you to become part of the story to walk next to the characters to share in their lives to feel as they feel Watch the movie by all means the photography is absolutely incredible but then read the novel and get the whole story You will not be disappointed
