I was inspired to read The Gormenghast Trilogy after hearing wonderful things about it at the Vintage Classics Day. A couple of people mentioned that they’d also like to read it and so I thought I’d see if anyone was interested in participating in a read-along.
Gormenghast is a cult classic that has been described as:
one of the most distinctive, absorbing and wonderfully strange books ever written.
It is set in a crumbling castle and describes the lives of the heirs to this dark kingdom. I’m afraid I don’t know much more about it, but I’m looking forward to finding out!
Amazon states that it is a book:
no reader interested in Gothic dare to miss.
The fourth book in the “trilogy” is being released in July and so it seems appropriate to read these books now, making the way through the entire series in one long stint.
I was thinking about starting the read-along in June, but am not sure about what pace to take.
Are you interesting in reading Gormenghast with me?
If so, how quickly would you like to progress through the books?
