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.… (mere)

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. ( )

This was alright. I think Patrick Rothfuss' Slow Regard of Silent Things does this 'genre' better. I'll admit I didn't like the sociology/anthropology magic route here or in, say, Stephenon's DODO. It always seems to makes academics into mystics in an annoying way

For what it does, the book is at least short. I agree with other commenters that it is peaceful and doesn't get too cliche, the world=house is also given the right amount of detail. But I'll admit I don't care enough about it to ask any more questions about it. This was never going to have a hugely thrilling climactic event but it also came and went. Nicely atmospheric but I don't quite understand what people like so much about it ( )

A delightful mediation on loneliness and a slow, peacefully paced book. ( )

A rather delightful puzzle of a book with an endearing narrator. What seems mysterious is all wrapped up tidily at the end. ( )

Piranesi lives in a mansion with infinite rooms. Each room is adorned by dozens and dozens of statues.depicting scenes and stories from elsewhere. Piranesi believes he is a ‘child of the house’ and that the house provides for him.

The lower floors are flooded and provide fish and seaweed; The upper floors often have birds.

The only other living human inhabitant (he’s found a few skeletons) is a man Piranesi calls ‘The Other’, whom Piranesi believes lives far far away in the mansion. They meet for an hour twice a week. The Other sometimes give Piranesi gifts such as vitamin tablets or shoes. But when The Other lets slip that Piranesi’s memory is faulty, Piranesi goes back to the journals that he has kept for years and finds puzzling and disturbing entries. Is The Other really benign? How did Piranesi get here?

I’ve read a couple other books over the last few years featuring ‘portal’ alternative universes. This is my favorite of the three; perhaps because of the mystery and also the looming sense that all is not right. ( )

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
