A very well done take on a mystery. I went blind into this book and I was very pleasantly surprised. Check out our discussion about it on the Mind Duck Books podcast ep.32: https://bit.ly/3hjJexB

Announcement of the shortlist tonight.
Exciting! I'm hoping that #TranscendentKingdom and #VanishingHalf make the #shortlist

#WomensPrize #Fiction

Cinfhen Can‘t wait!!! I‘m hoping for #NoOneIsTalkingAboutThis #BurntSugar and I think this one will make it #Piranesi 2y
charl08 @Cinfhen I always predict wrong, so looking forward to hearing what they do decide on! Too many books. 2y
Cinfhen I think your predictions are pretty solid!! 2y

If you are a fan of Sally Rooney you will enjoy this. I am not. Good narrator on audio. This is my second book completed from the #WomensPrizeLongList and so far #Piranesi is far ahead. 3⭐️

I know, I know, I'm reading it again but I had nothing in the house to read and then I got my library books and you don't expect me to just not finish it?

Like the #piranesi #bookmark?

IamIamIam Nothing in the house to read 🤣🤣🤣🤣 (and other lies we tell ourselves...) I loved The Night Circus and just haven't gotten around to this one. 2y
emz711 @IamIamIam you must! I think it was better than the night circus 🤫🤫 2y
IamIamIam @emz711 ooooOOOOOOoooo 👀 2y

Well..... don‘t give up in the first half (I nearly did and that would be typical buddy read behaviour for me 😁) because the second half is awesome.
Not going to say anymore until discussion time. But I have lots of questions/thoughts.

MsMelissa Ok, now I‘m very curious about this one. Have you read Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell? If so, did you like it? I tried to read it three times but finally gave up. I wondering if this book is worth a try or not. 2y
TrishB @Book_Fiend_Melissa I bailed on that one too! I think even if you don‘t like this one it‘s very short. Unlike Jonathan Strange 😁 2y
squirrelbrain I agree, it was definitely a book of two halves, although I was rather intrigued by the first part. @Book_Fiend_Melissa - I‘d give it a go. Although I never tried Jonathan Strange, this isn‘t my genre but I loved it! 2y

MsMelissa Alright, you two have convinced me to give it a go ☺️ @squirrelbrain 2y
thewallflower0707 I‘ve never read her Strange & Norris book and am not interested in it, but all the buzz around #Piranesi intrigues me... should I try it? 2y
TrishB @squirrelbrain I was just getting to the point of - I need a bit more! And the story started for me. 2y
TrishB @Book_Fiend_Melissa quiet persuasion 😁 I‘ll be really interested in your review. 2y
TrishB @thewallflower0707 go on 😁 give it a go. 2y
thewallflower0707 @TrishB I think I will, that cover is too tempting😅 2y
TrishB @thewallflower0707 hope you like it 👍🏻 2y
Caroline2 Well I‘m up to page 30 now and I haven‘t got the foggiest clue as to what is going on!! Glad to hear it picks up in the second half! 👍 2y
TrishB @Caroline2 it does become clearer! 2y
rockpools So if I‘m really loving the weirdness of the first half, am I going to hate the second half? 😆 2y
TrishB @rockpools shall we take bets 😁 2y
Vansa @rockpools definitely not. The second half ties things up and is very moving. 2y
Vansa I found it extremely clever that just as the reader is starting to wonder where exactly this is going, she makes it all very clear. Incredible writing. 2y
TrishB @Vansa - yes, just in time she starts to drip the actual information. 2y
Cathythoughts 👍🏻😁 2y
batsy @Vansa I thought she pulled it off really well! Real mastery of her material 😍 2y

I snagged a sample of Susanna Clarke's new book and it was so enchanting I can hardly wait to read the whole book.
