Girl with the Pearl Earring Interpretations

The reviews of Tracy Chevalier's Girl with the Pearl Earring were very interesting. Most wrote that they enjoyed the beautiful descriptions of the town and the ongoings of the house. I wholeheartedly agree; I really enjoyed the descriptions I could really see what was happening at almost every moment. The one thing with which I did disagree was in regards to the ending. Many reviewers like the "twist" ending; I feel this wasn't a twist in any sort of way. I feel it did not really add anything to the story and did not seem to be in the character of the painter. It seemed all rather sentimental hogwash for no real reason. In fact, I cannot believe the reviewers seemed to ignore the fact that this is a story about a woman who has the possibility to do great things but settles completely and full.
