"From the New York Times bestselling author of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, an intoxicating, hypnotic new novel set in a dreamlike alternative reality. 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"--… (mer)

    hubies: Piranesi is not scary, but in both books there is this mystifying, unpeopled world of impossible (and perhaps infinite) house-like space. Also: cryptic diary entries, unstable mind, short film as a plot device.

This all gets very odd, but in a most fascinating way. Our narrator is Piranesi, but he's not sure that's his name. He inhabits a world that seems to consist of multiple rooms and halls which are mostly inhabited by statues, and we experience the world through his journal entries. There seem to be just 2 human residents, him self and someone he calls "The Other". This person seems to be a scientist or similar, with Piranesi being the person who explores the halls and reports back on various elements. He seems quite innocent and unknowing which is quite endearing, we seem to discover the world with him. We also find out about some of the statues, and the various collections of bones that indicate there have been other inhabitants of this world. Then something happens to upset the apparent equilibrium - another person appears in the world. The Other warns Piranesi against 16, but Piranesi starts to discover facts about the person that are gained by his own observations that differ from that of The Other. What happens next is difficult to describe without spoilers, and this is one that I think you need to go into blind. But explores something about the nature of the mind and madness, and questions what is truth. Does the state of mind change what is true? And that old scientific truth that observing the experiment changes the experiment. The ending feels right and yet wrong at the same time. Piranesi discovers something of himself and looses himself at the same time. I'm left feeling slightly off centre. ( )

What a fun story. You have no idea what is happening when you first start, then no clue where it is going, then is just slowly dawns on you. Quite a fun read. ( )
  hhornblower | Mar 3, 2021 |
This one is very fantasy-ish, more so than Jonathan Strange, in the sense that most of the novel is spent in a strange world, where the rules and realities are dropped in piecemeal. It's a novel with a puzzle, or a code to crack. As such, I'm not sure what the experience of reading a second time will be like. But I know that I will read it a second time, because it's such a heartrending story, with fascinating characters in eldritch environments. ( )

A compulsive read, so it was a good thing it's rather a lot shorter than Jonathan Strange and could be fit into an evening! This is probably because the limited cast doesn't allow for as expansive an exploration - of the setting there is clearly an infinite space to explore, but such a travelogue would after a while start to pall, and thus lose some mystique, if unleavened with more human (or at least avian) interaction and/or plot. At this length the revelations proceed at a decent pace, and all concludes in a satisfactory way while leaving the world and its entrance as a tantalising dreamscape. ( )

I don't how she creates this world so completely, but not only can I imagine it but I understand it. I care deeply what happens to P. The structure of the book is also perfect. And though I did not want it to end, the last line was perfect except then it didn't quite end!). Want to reread. ( )

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.

"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
