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)

  3. 70
    House of Leaves af Mark Z. Danielewski (hubies)
    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.

    The Affirmation af Christopher Priest (tetrachromat)
  8. 10
    The Memory Theater af Karin Tidbeck (Aquila)
    Aquila: There's a similarlity of background and form in these two books - alternate worlds and amnesia and intellectual cults. And yet they are quite different stories.

This review is featured on Behind the Pages: Piranesi

Piranesi takes its time immersing readers in the environment that the character Piranesi finds himself in. Each statue encountered in the labyrinth is gone into detail. This includes what they mean to Piranesi and how their different poses are interpreted. While this builds the world around the character, it also shows how isolated Piranesi is. Alongside interactions with the statues, are brief glimpses of animals he encounters. Again, he adds extra meaning to these encounters, adding a fictional element to his responses and ideals.

The pacing of Piranesi is slow. There is not much action in this novella. It is more so the type of writing to make the reader sit back and think. To question what the character is experiencing and try to think outside of the bounds of what is presented. When Piranesi begins to uncover the truth behind the house he lives in, a slow dawning horror will come over the reader. However, Piranesi’s reaction lessens the emotional impact.

This is a novella for readers who enjoy high attention to detail in settings and a slower-paced read. Piranesi does not go through much character development. A majority of the focus remains on Piranesi’s surroundings and is accented by the story behind his arrival in the labyrinth. ( )

It would be impossible for me to describe what this book is about, but it really doesn't matter because it's best if you don't know much about it going in. It has beautiful world-building, there is a building of suspense as you learn more in the story, and it will keep you thinking about the book long after it is done. Piranesi is the type of book that gets even better the more time that passes after you've finished the last page. ( )

Definitely as good as they say. Wonderful, psychedelic, fever dream of a novel. Takes a concept whiffed in House Of Leaves and adds an unexpected murder mystery, sinister academics that are perhaps a pastiche of Timothy Morton and postmodernists, and so much beautiful language that I felt my innser self joining the House!

So mysterious! Loved reading this so much. Want to read it again. ( )

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
