    4.5 starsSometimes in a novel, a place is such a strong and integral part of the story that it deserves as much attention as if it were a character The house in this novel exerts so much influence over the lives of the characters, sometimes so than the other people in their lives The house, with its big windows and ornate design is a symbol of success for Cyril Conroy, th

    Attached The Dutch House is a story of siblings, Danny and Maeve Conroy, their obsessive connection with the iconic family house they lived in as young children and how their lives unfolded over the years The story is narrated by Danny over multiple non linear time periods The various time jumps and reflections back to important events felt like a jigsaw puzzle being buil

    Patchett is way up there on my, can t wait for next novel, list Her characterizations, her insight into flawed families and her wry observations of human nature, are always top notched In this, her soon to be published novel, she follows a family for five decades, a family that is broken apart, for reasons that I cannot at this time share Brother and sister, Maeve and Danny, are extre

    Ann Patchett s latest novel proves to be a absolute delight to read with its echoes of the darkest of fairytales with the requisite wicked stepmother in the form of Andrea We are provided with Patchett s acute understanding and keen observational insights of what it is to be human, the complex nature of family and the dysfunctional dynamics that proliferate Shortly after WW2, Cyril Conroy s

    A grand house with grand siblings insideA house Really I want people, not inanimate objects I thought the house would be bigger than the people in it, but thank god I was wrong I ended up loving the place Hell, I d go to an open house there any day Damn straight I d like to snoop around.The cover and the title scared me A painting of an uptight, upright woman on the cover, and Dutch House as the

    Awfully close to 5 stars The Dutch House is full of the stuff I love in fiction It s really well written, has great characters, is original and feels like a big meaty story I could get lost in Danny is the narrator He grew up in the grandiose Dutch House with his sister, Maeve, and his father What happens to his mother is a mystery that unravels over time But the fallout from her disappearance is a ver

    This was a great book with Ann Patchett s signature writing She s the queen of family sagas and this is no different The Dutch House refers to a mansion Meave and Danny live with their parents We go through the lives of these siblings from their childhood to quite late in their lives Their mother leaves suddenly without a word one day when they were children, and they never knew why We go through the next ph

    For no reason, I ve never read Patchett and I ve been missing out This is an intelligent novel that is almost a fable including an evil stepmonster but it s the house that looms large A house that represents success, greed, loss, sadness and, ultimately, forgiveness A wife is desperately unhappy, close siblings are eventually ousted and many lives are deeply affected by the house and what it means to each characte

    4.5 StarsThis is the third book of Patchett s that I ve read, the first being State of Wonder, the second, Commonwealth, and this is one adds to the proof that she was born to write these complex family dramas where each character equally shares the wounds of all involved A little like a fairy tale flipped upside down, this story includes an imposing, castle like house, which seems to affect each character diffe

    A HUGE thanx to Netgalley and HarperCollins for a review copy of this book, in exchange for this honest review I ve only read two other Patchett books, but she has already become a favorite author, and I was very excited to be granted this ARC months prior to its publication in late Sept., since her last novel, Commonwealth, made it into my top 5 reads for 2016 and I am fairly confident this one will do likewise for 2019.The
