I picked this up at the recommendation of another Bookwyrm user just a few days ago and tore through it in just two sittings. I very much enjoyed Clarke's first novel, but its difficult language and enormous size made it difficult to grasp the whole story. Piranesi is fast, almost breezy, but still has Clarke's incredible world building. The House—an infinite collection of halls and vestibules populated with unending statues, with a sea sloshing around the lower floor and clouds filling the upper—is an incredibly potent concept, and one I know will stick with me. If you love Borges, you'll love this book.
