NATIONAL BESTSELLER A NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW EDITORS' CHOICE Proclaimed as "truly spellbinding," a "great fable" that "functions as transporting romance" by the Guardian, the runaway #1 international bestseller "A rich, gothic entertainment that explores what books have trapped inside them and reminds us of the power of storytelling. Spellbinding." -- TRACY CHEVALIER Imagine you could erase grief. Imagine you could remove pain. Imagine you could hide the darkest, most horrifying secret. Forever. Young Emmett Farmer is working in the fields when a strange letter arrives summoning him away from his family. He is to begin an apprenticeship as a Bookbinder--a vocation that arouses fear, superstition, and prejudice amongst their small community, but one neither he nor his parents can afford to refuse. For as long as he can recall, Emmett has been drawn to books, even though they are strictly forbidden. Bookbinding is a sacred calling, Seredith informs her new apprentice, and he is a binder born. Under the old woman's watchful eye, Emmett learns to hand-craft the elegant leather-bound volumes. Within each one they will capture something unique and extraordinary: a memory. If there's something you want to forget, a binder can help. If there's something you need to erase, they can assist. Within the pages of the books they create, secrets are concealed and the past is locked away. In a vault under his mentor's workshop rows upon rows of books are meticulously stored. But while Seredith is an artisan, there are others of their kind, avaricious and amoral tradesman who use their talents for dark ends--and just as Emmett begins to settle into his new circumstances, he makes an astonishing discovery: one of the books has his name on it. Soon, everything he thought he understood about his life will be dramatically rewritten. An unforgettable novel of enchantment, mystery, memory, and forbidden love, The Binding is a beautiful homage to the allure and life-changing power of books--and a reminder to us all that knowledge can be its own kind of magic.… (més)

Good marketing, blurb and cover lure you to this book under the belief that you are going to read a clever fantasy novel. indeed the first part of the book shapes up well in this respect. Unfortunately it ends there. As the story moves on to part 2 we have lost one of the key characters and essentially forget everything that happened in part one.

So, unfortunately, you need to be aware that you have been deceived. This is not the magic fantasy story you are expecting.

Ultimately I think this book can be considered historical romantic fiction, centred around fantasy/magic idea.

I’m pleased for those that loved the book. It was an engaging read, just disappointed that I felt cheated from the way it was marketed. ( )

4 stars :
* generous amounts of swirling snow
* mystery
* original conception
* star-crossed lovers

Beautifully written. And I loved the imaginative premise of this novel, that memories can be removed then saved within a book binding; and Bridget Collins masterfully illuminates all the ramifications of that conceit. ( )

This was my last book for 2021 and what a banger it was! I absolutely loved it. I think it has one of the most original main plots I have come across in a long time. The concept of being bound, being able to forget entire parts of your life, and then that constituting a book is phenomenal. It is one of those ideas I wish I had come up with.
This is the story of Emmet Farmer and how he is destined to be a binder, a profession frowned upon, but widely used by people. As he is doing his apprenticeship, he comes across a book that has his name on it, and that sets out to be one of the most beautiful stories there are.
Please do read this book. It is original, moody, uplifting and heartbreaking at the same time. Like I said, a banger. ( )

This book was a solid 4 star rating for me. I absolutely loved the first half of this book. It was beautifully crafted and a wonderful design, but the second half did not feel as strong to me. I enjoyed hearing Lucian's voice as well as Emmett's but I wish that the story would have stuck around with Emmett. I also noticed that if you were a woman in the book nothing good would happen to you. It was distressing in a sense, but overall it was a good read and I got through it very easily. ( )

“The Binding” succeeds in creating the magic it proposes: the experience of memory returning, a rush of recollection that can change the whole world, if only for one person at a time — or sometimes two.
afegit per KayCliff | editaNew York Times, Naomi Novik (May 8, 2019)
 
The Binding is an unpretentious work of escapist fiction. The morality of the book is simple; the good are essentially noble and their enemies unambiguously wicked. The vaguely antiquated setting could as easily be Westeros or Hardy’s Wessex. At the heart of the novel is a love story that develops along a familiar trajectory, from immediate dislike to inexplicable flutters of the heart to full infatuation with its feeling of being “breathless and dizzy, as if my blood was too thin”. When the protagonists are happy, it’s spring outdoors. When things go wrong, a wet snow falls.... The Binding is a kissing novel par excellence, and on this level, it is like a wonderful meal made from a few simple ingredients: the feeling in your chest when you hold someone in your arms for the first time; the sight of a host of bluebells. In recent years, the state of the world has threatened to make us forget the simple pleasures of kisses and bluebells and thick novels that tell stories of heartbreak. Here is a book to help us remember.
