Piranesi's house is no ordinary building: its rooms are infinite, its corridors endless, its walls are lined with thousands upon thousands of statues, each one different from all the others. Within the labyrinth of halls an ocean is imprisoned; waves thunder up staircases, rooms are flooded in an instant. But Piranesi is not afraid; he understands the tides as he understands the pattern of the labyrinth itself. He lives to explore the house. There is one other person in the house-a man called The Other, who visits Piranesi twice a week and asks for help with research into A Great and Secret Knowledge. But as Piranesi explores, evidence emerges of another person, and a terrible truth begins to unravel, revealing a world beyond the one Piranesi has always known. For readers of Neil Gaiman's The Ocean at the End of the Lane and fans of Madeline Miller's Circe, Piranesi introduces an astonishing new world, an infinite labyrinth, full of startling images and surreal beauty, haunted by the tides and the clouds.… (mais)

It would be impossible for me to describe what this book is about, but it really doesn't matter because it's best if you don't know much about it going in. It has beautiful world-building, there is a building of suspense as you learn more in the story, and it will keep you thinking about the book long after it is done. Piranesi is the type of book that gets even better the more time that passes after you've finished the last page. ( )

Definitely as good as they say. Wonderful, psychedelic, fever dream of a novel. Takes a concept whiffed in House Of Leaves and adds an unexpected murder mystery, sinister academics that are perhaps a pastiche of Timothy Morton and postmodernists, and so much beautiful language that I felt my innser self joining the House!

So mysterious! Loved reading this so much. Want to read it again. ( )

An easy five stars, this book will transport you to another world, and it's such a gentle and marvelous place, you may want to stay a while. ( )

Piranesi begins with a logical and scientific catalogue of a world that is both foreign and familiar, but the experience of reading it is anything but orderly. In fact, I felt a bit untethered throughout most of the mythos—if it can even be considered myth. I began reading it as an allegory but without a firm fix on the foundation. Is it religious (think creation and flood stories) or mythological (think Daedalus’s labyrinth) or philosophical (think Plato’s Cave). Like Piranesi experiences in his research, I definitely felt adrift in this world, tossing amongst the waves, questioning everything and having no idea in which Hall I might wash ashore. ( )

Here it is worth reflecting on the subject of Clarke's overt homage. The historical Piranesi, an 18th-century engraver, is celebrated for his intricate and oppressive visions of imaginary prisons and his veduta ideate, precise renderings of classical edifices set amid fantastic vistas. Goethe, it is said, was so taken with these that he found the real Rome greatly disappointing. Clarke fuses these themes, seducing us with imaginative grandeur only to sweep that vision away, revealing the monstrosities to which we can not only succumb but wholly surrender ourselves.

The result is a remarkable feat, not just of craft but of reinvention. Far from seeming burdened by her legacy, the Clarke we encounter here might be an unusually gifted newcomer unacquainted with her namesake's work. If there is a strand of continuity in this elegant and singular novel, it is in its central pre-occupation with the nature of fantasy itself. It remains a potent force, but one that can leave us - like Goethe among the ruins - forever disappointed by what is real.

How fantastic to have a bestselling novel with an index right at its heart.

"I am the great scholar, the magician, the adept, who is doing the experiment. Of course I need subjects to do it on".

The Magician's Nephew, C. S. Lewis
"People call me a philosopher or a scientist or an anthropologist. I am none of those things. I am an anamnesiologist. I study what has been forgotten. I divine what has disappeared utterly. I work with absences, with silences, with curious gaps between things. I am more of a magician than anything else."

Laurence Arne-Sayles, interview in The Secret Garden, May 1976
