A good yarn in the fashion of Name of the Rose but set in early 19th century London. Rich and many-layered. ( )

exciting, intricate tale, but the idiocy of the mother drove me up the wall. this did not ruin the book though.
  lidaskoteina | Jul 22, 2023 |
Reading this epic story is like trudging through mud, the details and characters like a recipe for Mexican mole sauce! Tedious, I decuded its not worth the effort especially with nearly 800 pages of 9 point size text! ( )

Huzzah! What an adventure! Couldn't put it down. Contemporary writer deftly delivers a sprawling Dickensian masterpiece with unreliable narrators thrown in to boot. The reader has to actually solve all the unanswered questions without the direct help of the narrator/sequential plot. Hidden within the quincunx of The Quincunx, the true story is apparently accessible (from reviews I've read) if one carefully rereads and studies the clues... ( )

'"The Quincunx" deserves the hoopla; it's an astonishing imitation, a Borgesian feat of sustained imaginative anachronism, the fictional equivalent of Colonial Williamsburg.'
tilføjet af bookfitz | RedigerNew York Times, Michael Malone (Mar 4, 1990)
 
"Quintuple the length of the ordinary novel, this extraordinary tour de force also has five times the ordinary allotment of adventure, action and aplomb."
tilføjet af bookfitz | RedigerPublishers Weekly (Jan 1, 1990)
 
"Palliser's first novel is an extraordinary achievement: a triple-decker (800-page) Victorian pastiche, obviously modeled on Bleak House, unfolding the staggeringly complex tale of young John Huffam's attempts to ward off ruin and death until he can solve multiple family mysteries."

It must have been late autumn of that year, and probably it was towards dusk for the sake of being less conspicuous.

This is the omnibus of the 5 Quincunx books, do not combine single split books into it.

Amendment: Originally published as one volume in English language editions, this was subsequently published as five separate books in France and some other countries - The individual editions should not be combined with the single volume English editions, the English listing on Amazon with the subtitle 'The Inheritance of John Huffam' is for a combined edition and is not in fact 'part 1'; the same goes for the Dutch edition 'De Quincunx : de erfenis van John Huffam', which is a translation of the complete work.
