Customer Review

on February 19, 2014
I LOVE reading and I love reading a challenging, complex novel - this is neither ! It is tedious, dull and never ending , The Booker prize winners have often been criticised for being pompous and highly over rated , I have read many and never felt that to be true until reading The Luminaries! What angers me most about this book is that the story is so simple - it just does not justify over 800 pages.And " simple" can be good but in this case its just deadly dull. The characters are uninteresting and the plot just drifts about getting nowhere. Also each chapter has a heading which is suppose to have some significance to the Zodiac and this is where the pretentiousness really comes in. Sadly it's not even a book to hate - its too boring for that. I refused to give up so read to the very last page - don't know about 50 Shades Of Grey this is 800 Pages Of White !!
