From the New York Times bestselling author of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, an intoxicating, hypnotic new novel set in a dreamlike alternative reality. 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.… (més)

Mi viene difficile definire questo libro, di sicuro non è un fantasy puro come mi aspettavo ma più che altro una storia di mistero e scoperta, con degli elementi fantastici e perfino degli aspetti thriller.
Siamo catapultati in un mondo onirico e classicheggiante, tra vasti saloni ed enormi statue: è li che si muove il nostro protagonista Piranesi, tutto solo (o quasi) come un Adamo senza Eva. E' molto interessante la sua caratterizzazione perché unisce le qualità del "buon selvaggio" di Rousseau ad una fede incrollabile nella scienza e nella ragione. Il suo viaggio verso la verità è il tema portante del romanzo e nonostante per noi lettori le cose siano chiare fin da subito, è affascinante seguirlo mentre pur tra mille ingenuità e passi falsi riesce piano piano a recuperare se stesso e a trovare delle risposte.
L'ultima parte è un po' deludente, con una lunga sezione action che ho trovato superflua e poco in linea col tono filosofeggiante ed astratto che aveva contraddistinto l'opera fino a quel momento. La conclusione vera e propria invece torna vaga e immaginifica, lasciandoci appesi sul filo dell'ambiguità. [SPOILER]-C'era davvero un altro mondo, o era semplicemente il costrutto delle menti seviziate e plagiate delle vittime del Profeta e dell'Altro?-[FINE SPOILER]
Nel complesso è stato un libro particolarissimo, che mi ha avvinto fin dalle prime righe e che non riuscivo a mettere giù una volta iniziato; peccato che siano mancati quei fuochi d'artificio finali che sembrava promettere e che si sia chiuso tutto in anticlimax, ma resta una lettura che consiglierei a tutti.

I devoured this book! It's been a long time since a book commanded my attention from start to finish, but Piranesi did just that. I want to visit this world again, I still have so many questions.
I finished this book feeling inspired to up my journaling game, and get into creative writing. ( )

Struggled a lot to get into this one. Mostly because sci-fi and fantasy are just not for me. The writing was excellent, but the story didn't grab me. I did finish it, and there were parts I enjoyed in between. ( )

What a weird fantastical dreamscape of a book. For about the first third of the book, you don't know what's going on, and then you get to get glimmerings of a larger mystery/intrigue and just why Piranesi is in the labyrinth. It's super compelling - I stayed up half the night reading the first half, and then read through the rest in one sitting. It's part mystery, part fantasy world building exercise, part philosophical pondering, all tied together in a fever dream. ( )

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
