Inhaltsangabe

Bloomsbury presents Piranesi by Susanna Clarke, read by Chiwetel Ejiofor.

A Sunday Times best seller.

A New York Times best seller.

The spectacular new novel from the best-selling author of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, ‘one of our greatest living authors.’ (New York Magazine)

Piranesi lives in the House. Perhaps he always has.

In his notebooks, day after day, he makes a clear and careful record of its wonders: the labyrinth of halls, the thousands upon thousands of statues, the tides that thunder up staircases, the clouds that move in slow procession through the upper halls. On Tuesdays and Fridays Piranesi sees his friend, the Other. At other times he brings tributes of food to the Dead. But mostly, he is alone.

Messages begin to appear, scratched out in chalk on the pavements. There is someone new in the House. But who are they and what do they want? Are they a friend or do they bring destruction and madness as the Other claims?

Lost texts must be found; secrets must be uncovered. The world that Piranesi thought he knew is becoming strange and dangerous.

The Beauty of the House is immeasurable; its Kindness infinite.

Kritikerstimmen

"A book to look out for in 2020." (Guardian)

"Just read Susanna Clarke’s extraordinary Piranesi.... Like nothing else." (Justine Jordan, Guardian)

"Piranesi astonished me. It is a miraculous and luminous feat of storytelling, at once a gripping mystery, an adventure through a brilliant new fantasy world, and a deep meditation on the human condition: feeling lost, and being found. I already want to be back in its haunting and beautiful halls!" (Madeline Miller)

Piranesi

I am one of the few people who did not get a kick out of "Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell" so I was hesitant with this one. But the title drew me in. And well, I am glad it did. The story is really great. Mysterious and weird. But if there is one aspect of this audiobook I really want to rave about it is the narrator. So many audiobooks seem to be read in the same kind of "acting-voice", which always sounds slightly the same and is a bit annoying until you get used to it. But this one was perfection. It is a complete merging of the actor's voice and the character of Piranesi. It definitely added a layer of pleasure to the story, since I so clearly had the impression that an actual person, Piranesi, was telling me their story. So if you're interested in a philosophical mystery or just a weird tale, do yourself a favor and don't read it – listen to it.
