Piranesi lives in the House. Perhaps he always has. In his notebooks, day after day, he makes a clear and careful record of its wonders: the labyrinth of halls, the thousands upon thousands of statues, the tides that thunder up staircases, the clouds that move in slow procession through the upper halls. On Tuesdays and Fridays Piranesi sees his friend, the Other. At other times he brings tributes of food and waterlilies to the Dead. But mostly, he is alone. Messages begin to appear, scratched out in chalk on the pavements. There is someone new in the House. But who are they and what do they want? Are they a friend or do they bring destruction and madness as the Other claims? Lost texts must be found; secrets must be uncovered. The world that Piranesi thought he knew is becoming strange and dangerous. The Beauty of the House is immeasurable ; its Kindness infinite.… (mais)

I have a pretty strong aversion to abandoning a book and this book is an illustration of the reason why. After the first few chapters I was very lost and confused and felt like I was dumped into the middle of the narrative. I decided to stick with it and glad that I did as the pieces started to fall into place. I don’t think I picked up on all the underlying themes that some people have but I enjoyed the story and Piranesi’s childlike wonder of his world. I think the author did a great job of world building and I could imagine myself in such a beautiful place. ( )

Just amazing. Uplifting. Five stars on all criteria. This is an utterly original story that is engrossing and deeply moving. This is the first book of Clarke’s that I have read. She writes beautifully and treats her imagined world with the respect it deserves—that is, she leads you down a path into something wondrous and never takes it back or explains it away. She has mastery of her characters and of her plot and yet I’ve never read anything quite like Piranesi. ( )

Loved the journalistic field-guide to the labyrinth set LOST-like menace of "the Other". Tight narrative without a cluttered cast and a propulsive, thought-provoking plot. ( )

I really liked the gradual reveal of what's going on, and thought it worked really well. Also, the House is a really fascinating and evocative setting. ( )

I have absolutely no idea what this was about! I don't like capitalisation of words that should not be capitalised so I struggled with that at the beginning although it became less annoying as I adapted. Fantasy? Magical realism? I have no idea - it was interesting but I am not sure I actually liked it. JS&MN, I really enjoyed despite its chunkster status but maybe I'm just not clever enough for this. ( )

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
