Reading progress update: I've read 5%.

The Luminaries - Eleanor Catton Quincunx - Charles Palliser

Oh I can tell already that I'm going to love this. Catton has absolutely nailed that 19th century writing style. 


I usually hate it when the book I'm reading is compared to either the latest blockbuster or a literary classic, because more often than not I end up rather underwhelmed. But The Luminaries is already reminding me of The Quincunx by Charls Palliser which I absolutely loved.
