Book Review: Chasing Vermeer

Summary: When a book of unexplainable occurrences brings Petra Andalee and Calder Pillay together, strange things start to happen: seemingly unrelated events connect, an eccentric old woman seeks their company, and an invaluable Vermeer painting disappears. Before they know it, the two find themselves at the center of an international art scandal, where no one — neighbors, parents, teachers — is spared from suspicion. As Petra and Calder are drawn clue by clue into a mysterious labyrinth, they must draw on their powers of intuition, their problem-solving skills, and their knowledge of Vermeer. Can they decipher a crime that has left even the FBI baffled?

Thoughts: This is a very different and interesting book, I'll admit, I've never seen anything like it, definitely not a light read though! I picked this up expecting a story similar to The Clockwork Three and ready to enjoy a light read. Instead I got a strange, complex, and thought provoking, no, demanding, story. The author riddles the entire book with codes and secrets and hidden objects and forces the reader to decipher several to understand what was happening. So, to be honest, I found it a little annoying and the characters weren't well developed either. I think I would have enjoyed this book more if I had really wanted something to work at and puzzle over, but I didn't. Overall its a good book, especially if you're looking for some brain food, but don't expect a quick, easy read.

Content: Nothing at all.
