The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton

 The Luminaries The winner of the Man Booker Prize is a hefty novel and a really good read. My review is on Goodreads.

This New Zealand writer's biography can be found on the New Zealand Book Council website. This is only her second novel and is the longest work to receive the prize in its 45-year history.

  1. I enjoyed the piecemeal construction of the mystery through the reappraisal of the same events from different perspectives, followed by the formal legalistic elucidation, and then the rounding out via the examination of the interactions of the parties. That sounds awfully dry - believe me, the book is anything but, as the process of drawing you in is more or less irresistible.
