The Miniaturist’s cabinet

The cabinet is the key that the plot revolves around.  What do you think this symbolises within the story?  A slow beginning, but I am enjoying this book now.  Looking forward to hearing what you think of it next week.

  1. I’m enjoying it whilst reading it, but not rushing to pick it up. The historical setting is very interesting – I want to go back to Amsterdam now!

  2. I love the cabinet, but wondering if Burton is trying to tackle too many issues in the one book – racism, homosexuality, feminism. Like you, I am enjoying it but not desperate to read it at the moment.

  3. I think that this book creates a really vivid sense of place- I feel that I am transported to the cold, draughty house in Amsterdam. The atmosphere is dark and full of suspense – waiting for the next thing to happen. But all this said, there is something about the book that makes me a bit reluctant to read it and I look forward to discussing this in the group. I do hope to complete it by the next meeting!
