Accurate Descriptions of Amsterdam

  • Author: David Hewson

Review Author: JSAuthor



House of Dolls takes place in Amsterdam and the author describes the city quite beautifully and accurately. One of his characters live on a houseboat close to my neighborhood and his descriptions were extremely familiar – well done! I also loved the very Dutch attributes he’s given some of his characters (calling while biking, constant presence of small, nippy dogs). The plot line about missing and abused children disturbed me somewhat, making it difficult to finish. However David Hewson is a fantastic writer and I would definitely read another book by him.It’s perhaps important to note that I found this book through TripFiction’s list of books set in Amsterdam.
