Beckie reads The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton

Why did you read it: It won the Booker Prize (youngest novelist and longest book to do so), and it sounded interesting.

Has Jeremy read it?: Yes. I’m editing my original post to match the format he came up with for his review.

42-word review: I mostly ignored the astrological framing device while reading this gripping 848-page jigsaw puzzle of a book. Turns out, that’s the cleverest part. The masterful characterisation and plotting that kept the mystery intriguing over its entire length made the book great, anyway.
