I don't have any strong feelings about this one. It was passably interesting, and I thought Griet was a fairly well-developed (if slightly tragic) character, but the plot itself was not exactly gripping. It would probably appeal to someone with a lust for historical fiction of this era. Me, I'm just glad this was the version with the painting on the front cover rather than the picture from the movie. I often turned back to look, comparing the descriptions in the narrative to the original artwork. It certainly made me see things in the image I never had before.
