Susanna Clarke – Piranesi

Wow. Finished Susanna Clarke’s Piranesi in less than 24 hours. It’s not the longest of books but still the first time in ages I’ve been compelled to progress so quickly through a novel.

It’s difficult to comment on the book without giving away the plot. It’s like a wine that lingers on the tongue and brings back memories of other pleasant wines.

When I picked a book last night I’d hoped for a page turner. I didn’t expect something that would consume every spare moment of the following day, but there is no other way to read Piranesi.
