The Luminaries - Finis

Last hundred pages: think of running downhill with small, frantic steps to try and keep your balance.

Last words: "The rain." Did it hark back to weather on Page One? Or refer to a drought? Neither.

Peculiar, precociously clever book. Reminded me of Jonathan Safran Foer, except that "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" had the heart of a boy beating through it. Catton sets us among the stars, where there is energy aplenty, but no blood or brain or breath.
