The opening pages are terrifying -- calm but relentless. A great read... ( )

This is an odd little backwards pioneer story. A few generations after the collapse of industrial civilization, Americans are heading for the east coast to try and get a berth to Europe. A man and woman meet in a pesthouse where she's been recovering from sickness and team up for the various adventures on their way. It was OK, but not compelling. ( )

A lot of the procedural details are inaccurate, which was distracting, but the story engaged me. ( )

I am a big fan of Jim Crace and treat his novels like a warm blanket, although his subjects are not always easy. I have had this one on the shelf for some time saving it for a time when his wonderful prose was just what I needed. In the Pesthouse he takes us to a regressing America, where 'People were becoming scarce. America was emptying.' This is a novel of a rural America, there are highwaymen and human dangers but little sense of wild animals. Occasionally a relic of the former industrial America is stumbled upon. He writes with poetic sentences that are never a 'difficult' read, they flow. Jim Crace's characters are characters you know, they are people who doubt themselves, who are awkward and lonely. He writes affectionately about these people and understands their stories. The novel has a sense of the wild west, a sense of the medieval and a sense of the future, it is an excellent read. ( )

Crace revels in putting his protagonists in rough spots and watching their survival instincts take over.
 
Where Crace’s first, Calvino-inspired novel, “Continent,” conjured an imaginary continent through the sheer poetry of language, “The Pesthouse” is blandly and perfunctorily narrated, as if in the debased speech of Dogpatch . . .

The book’s droll, mock-tall-tale tone soon grates: it isn’t clear whether Crace wants us to feel sympathy for his characters or laugh at them as fools who have brought their collective doom upon themselves.

So it wasn’t any affront to my delicate, jingoistic sensibilities that kept making me put down “The Pesthouse.” Days would pass before I picked it up again to learn Pigeon and Mags’s fate. I hoped things would work out for them, but I didn’t much need to know.

The Pesthouse finds the author not just on his own best form, but arguably on the best form any English writer has shown in the last couple of years.
