A review by pat
Piranesi, by Susanna Clarke

adventurous dark mysterious fast-paced


As per my usual style, I didn’t even read the blurb of this book before diving in, so I had no idea what to expect. My only presumption was it would be set in a time of myths and gods, based on the cover. That was a fair way off the mark.

But it was wonderfully, intriguingly odd. I might not be entirely satisfied with the ending, but that might be because I want to hear more of what happens next. However, I suspect it also finishes at the right point.

Also: I’d love to see a TV adaption of this - perhaps an episode per chapter.
