Do you ever pick up a book, thinking it sounds really interesting, and then when you start reading it, go "wait a minute, I think I've read this already!" Yep. Happened with this one. And I remember I liked it the first time I read it. But let's just say it doesn't age well, and I wasn't so fond of it the second time around. I like Chevalier (The Lady and the Unicorn is my favorite of hers). But this one was really almost too simple in writing. I kept picturing Mary Poppins through the whole thing (which has nothing to do with the story at all).

But if you like a quick easy read, this one is a good one. But if you've never read Chevalier (she's most famous for Girl with a Pearl Earring), there are better ones to start with.
