Reading The Luminaries

Catton dissects her characters as they walk, lays out the pieces, zooms in for closer inspection. They couldn't know themselves as well as she does.

She makes each man appear the same, or nearly so, by the time she's done with him. All the different faces, physiques, backgrounds and abilities become dull in the light of their insecurities and weaknesses.

Reader applause.
