    I am ashamed.I am a foolish reader who, like many, take on a booker short list, or a booker winner, and expect it to wow me And it did, and it didn t I have an unsophisticated mind.To any reader who reads books as an art critic views a great master, they will read and hear the subtleties of the writer s mind as they structure their work, layer upon layer, until a masterpiece is drawn They will see and know the influences that formed the concept and guided the writer s pen in its construction.

    I m abandoning this book, with regret for having read it against my better judgement, without thorough research And yes, I m two starring and reviewing an unfinished book If that offends you to your very core, then stop reading now You ve been warned 1 There s a trend among reviews of three stars or less on this book to say things like I ll simply attempt to explain why I gave such an accomplished book only 3 stars It s just the sort of book I should have given 5 stars.

    I m a New Zealander like the author Everyone here is raving about this book including people who write great novels themselves I m feeling pretty miserable about the fact that I couldn t get into it, forced myself to read halfway, started again and then gave up in despair I liked the beginning, started to identify with the first character, Moody, then lost the plot when the other 14 or so main characters took over the story The faux 19th century style felt slightly forced and the sentences w

    4.5 A rip roaring yarn and awe inspiring use of experimental form it s not every day you see that in a book Like Catton s previous near masterpiece, The Rehearsal, this suffers from a rather misleading cover The illustration, and the very title The Luminaries seem to allude to a different world entirely a world of drawing rooms, and calling cards, and gowns p.31 not a mystery adventure involving gold prospectors, prostitutes, drug addiction and frontier town bigwigs One likely t

    Aries the Ram thrusts forward, discarding the past except as a symbol of what has been overcome Fearsome, single minded Aries This book does not fall under the sign of Aries it is invested in the past, it is enchanted by it The past is such an important part of the novel that the narrative continues after its climactic resolution with a series of escalating chapters that take the reader back to where it all began The Luminaries characters live under the shadow of their own pasts, they judg
