This book is completely stupid and pointless
Kim

I disliked this book imensely. I found it very boring and it talked about nothing! I do not recommend this book for young readers. High school students will be very bored with it. Maybe Adults will like it but i thought it was terrible!

1. In Girl with a Pearl Earring, Tracy Chevalier treats us to a richly appointed portrait of intersecting faiths, fracturing family dynamics, erotic awakenings, community scandals, religious tensions, and aesthetic compromises-all filtered brilliantly through the eyes of the young narrator Griet, whose concise, wide-eyed perspective functions much like Vermeer's camera obscura, rendering with particularly sharp precision and subtle insight the character of 17th-century Delft itself...............
