Check out our episode about this novel of multiple and overlapping perspectives. We were intrigued but not quite convinced that its a must read before you die book. #1001books #podcast #applepodcasts #googleplay #soundcloud.

BarbaraBB Love this review. I feel so about many more #1001books 😃. They represent important moments and developments in books but sometimes I wonder if I really should be a witness of all of these moments! 2mo

Liz_M This was one of my favorite books that I would never have heard of without the list. I LOVED the format and was impressed with how much story could be told through what I think of as "stage directions"! 3y

Prediction: this book will still be in our bottom 3 after we‘ve read all 1001. Yikes. Enjoy listening to us tear this book apart. #1001books #bookpodcast #applepodcasts #soundcloud #google play

DreesReads I enjoyed this one, it was weird and original. Gormenghast put me to sleep (I only made it halfway). 4y
1001BooksPodcast @AudreyMorris gormenghast is next week‘s episode. We‘ve been dying to find someone who likes these books because they do seem to be beloved and we couldn‘t figure it out. What characters or plot points that really made you love it? 4y
DreesReads It was the world building. The crazy castle, which is really a town, and the centuries of standards that have been followed unquestioningly. Everyone in their place and making the town work. And one guy who disrupts the whole thing. In Gormenghast my interests waned as soon as Titus left the castle. I guess I found Titus boring—his parents were fascinating. I was hoping to get to Titus-as-adult but didn‘t lol. 4y

DreesReads I read this with a GR group (just the first) and was sure I wouldn‘t like it. I do not like fantasy (I HATED The Hobbit). But this book is about people! Yay! No made up creatures or talking animals or fairies. 4y
DreesReads I also loved Undermajordomo Minor by Patrick DeWitt (I read that first). I think DeWitt likes Peake. 4y
1001BooksPodcast @AudreyMorris thanks for the info! We are both fantasy lovers and wanted there to be creatures and magic haha so that probably explains it. 4y
Daisey I listened to this as an audiobook several months ago and finally got around to listening to your podcast. I didn‘t hate the book but felt much the same as your comments. I enjoyed the world building but kept thinking it was building to something and then nothing actually happened. 3y
