From the New York Times bestselling author of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, an intoxicating, hypnotic new novel set in a dreamlike alternative reality. Piranesi's house is no ordinary building: its rooms are infinite, its corridors endless, its walls are lined with thousands upon thousands of statues, each one different from all the others. Within the labyrinth of halls an ocean is imprisoned; waves thunder up staircases, rooms are flooded in an instant. But Piranesi is not afraid; he understands the tides as he understands the pattern of the labyrinth itself. He lives to explore the house. There is one other person in the house-a man called The Other, who visits Piranesi twice a week and asks for help with research into A Great and Secret Knowledge. But as Piranesi explores, evidence emerges of another person, and a terrible truth begins to unravel, revealing a world beyond the one Piranesi has always known. For readers of Neil Gaiman's The Ocean at the End of the Lane and fans of Madeline Miller's Circe, Piranesi introduces an astonishing new world, an infinite labyrinth, full of startling images and surreal beauty, haunted by the tides and the clouds.… (mere)

    hubies: Piranesi is not scary, but in both books there is this mystifying, unpeopled world of impossible (and perhaps infinite) house-like space. Also: cryptic diary entries, unstable mind, short film as a plot device.

Tip: do not read ABOUT this book before you read the actual book.
Book Twitter had been raving about this book, so I bought it on a whim. I was not disappointed. Recommended for fans of The Goblin Emperor.

An amazing book. It takes a Borgesian fantastical setting and places a compelling mystery inside of it.

The World is an enormous House which have many Rooms that contain Statues. (The capitalization is a part of this World.)

Our protagonist, who is called Piranesi but does not think that is their name, tells us the story through journal entries, as they live in this world.

But every early on, questions start forming for both Piranesi and the reader. (Though the reader has separate and additional questions from Piranesi.) They know an Other, who mystifies the protagonist but which we find very recognizable, and refers to our 'normal' world.

The book gives revelations of it's mystery in a perfect order and continues to leave you with questions even as the book finishes in a very satisfactory way.

If you like weird fiction, whimsical fantasy, or esoteric philosophy, you can't go wrong with this book. ( )

Mostly audio

A plot that is Impossible to explain but absolutely lovely and the audiobook is excellent.

Oh. My. Goddess!
I will admit that I was very nervous about this book because the cover art, and some elements of the story brought on unpleasant memories of "The Starless Seas," which (alas) I detested.

I am SOOOO glad I ignored all that.

This book is a TREASURE. I will say no more, other than:
READ IT! READ IT! READ IT!

You're welcome.

I am still digesting this short but rich tale of memory loss, crime fiction, and stories within stories.

Piranesi the novel feels like a cold forbidding place. It has skeletons literally in the closet, noisy birds, and empty halls filled with towering sculptures.

But I read this story on heels of reading Gabrielle Zevin’s Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow, a story that is objectively about people who construct video games.

Piranesi has that feel as well.

The title character has been tricked into slipping into a parallel universe of halls and vestibules, looking and sounding a lot like the drawings of the historical Giovanni Piranesi.

It also sounds like a prison, but it also sounds like a video game, a game which Piranesi wants to stay in even once he learns there is a real world to which he can return.

It also sounds like the gamers I know all around me, including employees, former employees, even a little like my daughter and her partner who are both professional game builders.

Their society is virtual for the most part. The same can said for the social media worlds.

I see the games as prisons, but I am not a gamer. ( )

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.
 
How fantastic to have a bestselling novel with an index right at its heart.

"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
