Complex characters wrapped in a narrative of elegant writing excite you.
Man Booker prize-winner The Luminaries is a careful kaleidoscope of humanity set in 1866 Aotearoa New Zealand. It's a complex weaving of stories and characters. It’s ornate and gripping. When Walter Moody moves to the West Coast goldfields to make his fortune, he stumbles into a intricate web of unsolved crimes and suspicious persons. This certainly isn't a rapid read. Instead it's a careful unfolding that kept us intrigued and desperate to know how all the pieces would fit together.
