Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Luminaries (Kindle Edition)
Wonderful, wonderful book! Such interesting and depthful characters, a well plotted mystery, a lot of insights into everyday life in New Zealand in the time of the gold rush in the 19th century. But the main asset of the novel is the way the story is told - from the many different perspectives intercepting one another. I was very impressed with the rich and some times old fashioned language that Ms. Catton uses. I wish there were more authors like her! The astrological charts in the book are essential, meaning they show us how different characters interact with one another in the story and they are also useful in order to understand the temper and nature of the different characters. It is really a very ambitious work of fiction! Deserves the Booker prize!
