I just finished reading my first novel of the year, which is a bit surprising since we're already two weeks into 2014. However, there is a good reason for this. The book is over 800 pages long! What book was good enough to hold my interest for over 800 pages? The Luminaries, written by Eleanor Catton and winner of the Man Booker Prize.
When I first heard a review of this book on NPR after it was announced that it had won the Man Booker, I knew I had to read it. I was not disappointed.
If you are looking for a long, yet very engaging book, to get you through this cold, grey winter, I highly recommend The Luminaries.
