Review: A dolls house is a tough one for me. I know that I read it in Norwegian before I started rating books, so this rating would reflect what I thought about it when I read it in English a few years later. However, I recall never having liked it much in written form.
That said, I’ve seen at least three productions of it on stage, and I’ve always liked the staged versions a lot, so I undoubtedly think it’s a good play, and a great story. It might just be one of those plays that for me works much better as an actual play than it does in written form.
