I read this in 2022 but this is not my copy. Here are my thoughts from that time:

Piranesi by Susannah Clarke - still thinking, but I think I enjoyed it

Oh dear. I read this so many weeks ago now. I put off reviewing it in the last batch as I didn't have the words to do it justice and I still lack them.

As many twists and turns as the labyrinth it suggests, it defies definition.

A man alone in his halls. They are full of classical sculpture, awash with water, teaming with life. Once a week he meets 'the other' who questions him, occasionally brings him things that he needs, but mostly he is alone with his thoughts and his journals.

Just where is he? What is he? Even he doubts himself...and then he sees another person, fleetingly. The 'other' warns him off, this person means harm.

Slowly he begins to rediscover himself, remember who he is and how he came to be in the halls. But can he truly find himself and escape back to his life?

Although this book is registered at www.bookcrossing.com, you don't have to be a member. It's perfectly OK to just take the book and enjoy it. Of course, if you can visit the website and let us know that you've picked it up, that would be even better - you don't even have to join, you can add your comments anonymously - you can also post your review when you've read it, then return it or pass it on to someone else.

If you do join Bookcrossing, you'll be able to see what happens to it afterwards - for ever!
