Certainly interesting, and I think a very good translation. At times it was a bit peculiar I found, but not in a bad way, just not the sort of thing that I generally read. But I adored the setting so much, lovely Amsterdam in the 17th century, and the writing was flowing and pretty. Hendrickje's voice was often lovely, and very richly descriptive.

Ruby Oh you're reading it! I hope the translation's good and you like it at least a little bit, because it IS kind of weird and might not be up to everyone's taste. But I still love it dearly.

Sally It does seem to be a good translation :) You're right, it is kind of weird! But it's interesting too, I am definitely glad to read it!
