Book Thoughts: The Violin (Lindsay Pritchard)

Pritchard, Lindsay - The Violin

★★★★★☆☆

Title: The Violin
Author: Lindsay Pritchard
Genre: Fiction / Historical Fiction   Pages: 384
First published: 2018
Edition: E-book courtesy of Netgalley and Troubadour Publishing

This novel follows a string of owners of a particular violin, made in 1750. It documents their fortunes and misfortunes and manages to paint a vivid picture of the times they lived in.

After a few chapters I felt really engaged and wanted to keep reading. I enjoyed the writing style and the story that was being told. Unfortunately, I did feel my interest wane a bit in the last third/quarter of the book. Especially the last chapters on Harriet did not feel as vibrant as previous subjects.

Overall, I really enjoyed reading The Violin. It was well written and plotted out. I loved how the various characters flowed into each other. The ending was good, but I just wish it had been a little stronger.

If you like historical novels and brief glimpses into different eras I am sure you will enjoy this book.

5 out of 7 stars
