Description

Imagine you could erase your grief.
Imagine you could forget your pain.
Imagine you could hide a secret.
Forever.

Emmett Farmer is working in the fields when a letter arrives summoning him to begin an apprenticeship. He will work for a Bookbinder, a vocation that arouses fear, superstition and prejudice - but one neither he nor his parents can afford to refuse.

He will learn to handcraft beautiful volumes, and within each he will capture something unique and extraordinary: a memory. If there’s something you want to forget, he can help. If there’s something you need to erase, he can assist. Your past will be stored safely in a book, and you will never remember your secret, however terrible.

In a vault under his mentor’s workshop, row upon row of books - and memories - are meticulously stored and recorded.

Then one day Emmett makes an astonishing discovery: one of them has his name on it.

The Binding is an unforgettable, magical novel: a boundary-defying love story and a unique literary event.

Critiques

"The Binding is a dark chocolate slice of cake with a surprising, satisfying seam of raspberry running through it. It is a rich, gothic entertainment that explores what books have trapped in them and reminds us of the power of story telling. Spellbinding." (Tracy Chevalier) 

"Pure magic. The kind of immersive storytelling that makes you forget your own name. I wish I had written it." (Erin Kelly, author of He Said/She Said)

If you wished for another Wuthering Heights

The Binding transports you to the marshes of Yorkshire and binds you to the characters as if you were written into the story along with them. It has the spacious quality of a Max Richter piece of music and the melancholy of a modern Gothic masterpiece.

Different

I felt that the story was wonderfully different to what I had expected and similar in ways to "The watchmaker of Filigree Street" by Natasha Pulley.

The narration was incredible- Prekopp did an outstanding job.

I just felt a bit underwhelmed by the ending.

absolut fesselnd

Dieses Buch ist sowohl schaurig und geheimnissvoll als auch herzerwärmend, berührend, bildgewaltig und spannend zugleich. Der Sprecher ist einfach super! (Ich habe das Buch in englisch gehört.)

mostly "romance"

it was an ok story. full of drama and action. I feel the description wasn't accurate, though. I thought the book would be more about the interesting, binding process which it barely goes into at all. there remain several important loose ends at the conclusion, also, as the author instead focuses on the love angle. it's probably not a book I'd have read if the description had been more accurate, something like, "what if you were forced to forget your true love?"
