‘The Luminaries’, Eleanor Catton

Unfortunately I had not read any of the previous works by Eleanor Catton, and purchased the book on a whim (not in half directed by the gloriously inky-blue cover), hoping for a book that would transport me away from the mundane act of studying. The Luminaries is foremost a complex web of human relationships and … Continue reading ‘The Luminaries’, Eleanor Catton
