Piranesi
Piranesi | Susanna Clarke
The Beautiful Orderliness of the House is what gives us Life. Piranesi has always lived in the House; or, for as long as he can remember. Day after day, Piranesi records in his notebooks with precision and carefulness the House's endless halls, their great and strange statues, the ebb and flow of the tides within its walls. He speaks to the birds; and brings tributes of food and waterlilies to the House's Dead. Once in a while, he sees his friend the Other. But mostly, he is alone. Then messages begin to appear, scratched out in chalk and spelled out in pebbles. A new person has come to the House, and there is something they are trying to tell Piranesi. But another story is unfolding, within the pages of Piranesi's own journal. A story written in his own hand, that he cannot remember writing; a story of a group of strangers, in an unfamiliar world. The Beauty of the House is immeasurable; its Kindness infinite.

Got this book from the library as I love dark academia and it was on one of those “best of” lists for that genre. An interesting choice for that list but I can clearly see why it was included. This is a unique story and one that initially will leave you asking “what the heck am I reading.” However, it quickly begins revealing itself, bit by bit. A fascinating read. Worth your time if you like fantasy and, yes, dark academia. #puremichigan

Slim book which weaves in mystery and magical realism. I was absolutely drawn into the story when the labyrinths were introduced. However, I found my interest lagging slightly as we approached the halfway point of the book. It seemed to drag a little. The end really pivoted - I definitely did not think it was heading that way.
A soft pick for me (partially due to all the hype as well I think).

A uniquely captivating read and a marvel of world building, not a page passes by without the plot slowly creeping in like the tides. The ending was satisfying without feeling as though it were grasping for a happy ending.

What an adventure! Almost dream-like, the mystery winds itself to a sharp peak, and then climbs down back into reality. I found myself unsure in the beginning, and then riveted all the way to the end. I fell in love with Piranesi even as he frustrated me, and I feared the halls even as I wanted to know more and more about them. I'm sad the journey is over.

I do not trust "the Other". I didn't from when he had access to technology, clothes, food, and vitamins that made no sense to the image of the house Piranesi's experiences have painted. But this man really just said he met 16, but that 16 didn't know the way to where they are and ensnared himself in a lie and just... left? Excuse me sir? Also don't get me started on the memory lapse conversation they had before this ?...

I don‘t think I really got this book. Yeah, the halls were described as beautiful, I‘d love to visit. But it felt lol for me, only picking up in mystery of what the hall really is till halfway through. I felt lost. Feel like I missed the point of the book, being hidden in this hidden world. To many unstable unknowns for me too soon in the plot for me. Although, I always went back to reading it. Couldn‘t ”stop” all together

💠 So far Piranesi gets a 3/5. I'm struggling to follow the descriptions at times, I wish there was a map or drawing of the general shape of things. The questions I have, though! I'm so intrigued.
💠 I do when on my kindle! Digitally marking up is easy😊

What a fascinating book this was! I loved the world that was created. A house so beautiful and atmospheric, full of wonder. Of different floors filled with different things. The ocean and tides, birds, clouds and marble statues. Is this house real or in Piranesi‘s head? A story of both fantasy and mystery. This book was a breath of fresh air! ♥️

This was the first book I read in 2022, and it was a wonderful way to start off my reading year. Piranesi is mysterious and a bit melancholy, its twists and turns mirrored by the fantastical labyrinth of the House and its ebb and flow of tides. I loved piecing together Piranesi‘s past and the mystery of the House. Such a lovely read.

With 2 more books finished late this month, I finally got a #BookSpinBingo:
- Locomotion by Jacqueline Woodson: a beautiful novel-in-poems, about a 11 year-old boy trying to make sense of life through poetry;
- Piranesi by Susanna Clarke: a great book about a man living in a House which is a labyrinth full of rooms, with an ocean trapped in the basement and a lot of life-like statues. Loved her writing!

Both picks!

♥ A perfect union of mystery and fantasy. I have made many, in this story with great simplicity despite the fact that the writing is no longer simple. The setting is spectacular. I would also like to visit The Other World and I would have liked to have lots of company with Piranesi during his adventures. A plot that is not at all trivial, original, interesting, with a few twists but just right and an unexpected ending.♥ ︎

I find the ending rather sad, still, though. He very much loses his innocence... and I can't totally understand why he'd leave the house he loves so much.

I honestly had no idea what this was about when I decided to read it. I had been seeing it around and hearing good things. I didn't really enjoy her debut novel, but this was way better. Where Jonathan Strange... seemed way too long, this was a quick paced read. Sometimes you would be able to guess the larger story, but then other times there would be a surprise. Piranesi was an interesting character and I enjoyed his story. Great read!

I think it shouldn‘t come as a shock that I really enjoyed this book. In both of her novels, Clarke does such a great job of creating atmosphere, whether menacing or reverent. Here, what stands out to me as particularly skillful is how Clarke layers the narrator‘s perspective and the reader‘s, allowing us to see past what he says toward the central mystery of the book, without ever undermining the narrator‘s dignity.

tenar I really like the way you put that! I think the dignity afforded to the main character is a major aspect of why I found the book so touching. 5mo

Piranesi lives in the House where Sea Water laps at the Lower Halls, Tides sometimes flood entire Vestibules, where Clouds form in the Upper Halls and Statues cover every Wall. He is the Beloved Child of the House until strange occurrences start to happen and he has to consider the possibility that things weren't always as they are now and that he might not remember crucial details as to how he came to be where he is. ⬇️

starlight97 This book engaged me more than I expected it to. It is a strange combination of fantasy, magical realism and sci-fi and it was just too hard to put down. 5mo

This is such a fascinating read. I loved how mysterious the story is and how the reader is putting Piranesi's background into place as he is also beginning to figure out his past.

I was never able to finish Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, so I probably wouldn't have picked up Piranesi if not for the #newyearwhodis rec from @Johanna414 so I'm very glad this was on your list. #nywd22 @monalyisha

I think this book takes the award for all of the things. It‘s perplexing for about the first fifth you really do not know what you‘re reading or what is going on. Stay with it, because when things change they change quickly and it becomes something else entirely. I don‘t want to spoil anything but as soon as I‘d finished I started again and reread the entire thing with a whole new level of understanding. The less you know, the better. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I might not be smart enough for this book! I appreciated the religious and perhaps even mythological symbolism but I'm sure there were metaphors and themes I didn't pick up on. It's a quick read, and a thought-provoking one, but not for every reader. Certainly not an escapism read.

Finished this fantasy novel that won the Woman‘s Prize last year. The story centers around a character named Piranesi, who inhabits a strange world filled with many rooms, each filled with statues. Only one other person inhabits this world, which is all Piranesi has ever known. The world has more to it than meets the eye, and Piranesi starts to piece together the secrets of the place through clues from the other inhabitant and from his own journal

It‘s a curious little book, with an unreliable narrator cataloguing a mysterious world. A portal fantasy? A philosophical treatise? A warning against trusting academic magicians? Yes, kind of. I really enjoyed this as an audiobook - I could let Piranesi‘s lists and observations wash over me like his tides until they receded enough for a plot to sweep me under.

It‘s not something I‘d recommend really. But I have seen tons of rave reviews, so maybe don‘t take my word for it.

Most of this fantastical novel made me awfully melancholy. The protagonist is sensitive, and I related to how well he did in his own world, and how easily his equilibrium was dismantled by the outside. But by the book‘s ending I felt healed, one of my favorite reading feelings.

Reflecting on the author‘s long illness gave this work many shades of meaning. How vivid was the House, the mystical, marble setting - its ins and outs, tides and seasons!
