Gormenghast

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Titus Groan is seven years old. Lord and heir to the crumbling castle Gormenghast.

A gothic labyrinth of roofs and turrets, cloisters and corridors, stairwells and dungeons, it is also the cobwebbed kingdom of Byzantine government and age-old rituals, a world primed to implode beneath the weight of centuries of intrigue, treachery, and death. Steerpike, who began his climb across the roofs when Titus was born, is now ascending the spiral staircase to the heart of the castle, and in his wake lie imprisonment, manipulation, and murder.

Gormenghast is the second volume in Mervyn Peake's widely acclaimed trilogy, but it is much more than a sequel to Titus Groan—it is an enrichment and deepening of that book. At this very moment, a new generation of fantasy fans is growing to love this masterpiece that ranks as one of the twentieth century's most remarkable feats of imaginative writing.

Customer Reviews

Gorgenghast

A Book trully well before its time, the rich eccentric, magnificently realized characters are timeless and preposterously human in their quirks and foibles. Yet we feel for each and every one of them in their immence, sometimes preposterous condition. The battles (both emotional and phsical) are played out to the fullest and run the gambit of human idiosyncrasy.
