Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

An Amazon Best Book of September 2019: The best authors make the pages they write come to life: their words and characters shimmer with authenticity, motivation, and desire. The story can be simple or complex, familiar or otherworldly, but without connection, it is nothing. In Ann Patchett’s eighth novel, The Dutch House, everyone and everything bustles with vitality. It is a story about the interminable bond between siblings and it is an absolute joy to read. The novel follows a brother and sister who grow up in a fairy tale—a huge house, a loving father, and a caring staff. The only thing that’s missing is their mother, who had a more fraught existence, and fled the pressures of managing the household when they were young. When their father dies and leaves his fortune to their stepmother, the kids are left to fend for themselves, going on to live a drastically different life than they had imagined. The house of their youth haunts them through adulthood, and revenge is their desire—but not in the way you imagine. The Dutch House is moving and thoughtful—a quietly brilliant novel that has quickly become a favorite. —Al Woodworth, Amazon Book Review

Review

The Dutch House has the richness, allusiveness, and emotional heft of the best fiction.” (Boston Globe)

“As always, the author draws us close to her protagonists swiftly and gracefully.” (Wall Street Journal)

“Patchett’s prose is confident, unfussy and unadorned.” (New York Times)

“Patchett’s splendid novel is a thoughtful, compassionate exploration of obsession and forgiveness, what people acquire, keep, lose or give away, and what they leave behind.” (Publishers Weekly(starred review))

“This richly furnished novel gives brilliantly clear views into the lives it contains.” (Kirkus Reviews(starred review))

"You won’t want to put down this engrossing, warmhearted book even after you’ve read the last page.” (NPR)

"Ann Patchett spins a dark, compelling fairy tale in The Dutch House." (Entertainment Weekly)

A big-hearted, capacious novel...” (Chapter 16)

The Dutch House is unusual, thoughtful and oddly exciting, as well-told domestic dramas can be.” (Columbus Dispatch)

“Patchett’s storytelling abilities shine in this gratifying novel.” (Associated Press)
