Ryan's November 2019 pick
The Starless Sea is another exceptional novel from Erin Morgenstern, the author of The Night Circus.
The Starless Sea is a love story to stories, to storytellers and to lovers of stories. It is fairy tale, myth, mystery, adventure, romance, and so much more. It has depth, it has sweetness, it has sorrows, it has fate, it has heartbreak, it has love, it bends time and space, and most of all, it has stories, which are just stories until they are more.
Erin Morgenstern chooses every word with such care and precision, every sentence in this book could be read aloud to gasps of appreciation. Creativity, magic, and love flow through these pages like light through a window, settling delicately on each word, imbuing this story with a warmth and familiarity more commonly reserved for old friends.
The diversity in The Starless Sea spans across multiple categories of humanity, bringing a refreshing amount of reality into this rich fantastical narrative.
Her alternating chapters weave myths and fairytales throughout the main narrative and bring an added layer of mysticism and mystery to the whole.
The Starless Sea is warm, glittering, golden honey. It's stories written on dust motes floating through a beam of sunlight. It's a forgotten verse to a song you heard years ago floating on a breeze. It's an adventure and a love story and a video game where all of the choices have been made for you by someone who is much better at playing the game.
As a fan of fantasy, of love, of stories, and of Erin Morgenstern, I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
“Rarely is a book such an absolute feast—for the senses, for the intellect, and, above all, for the soul. Morgenstern dazzles in her latest novel, an intricately wrought tale populated by lovers, mystery, and sumptuous magic. The Starless Sea is an ode to book lovers everywhere, reanimating the excitement as well as the pure possibility felt when reading books like Harry Potter or The Lord of the Rings for the first time. I am reminded of the famous C.S. Lewis quote, ‘One day, you’ll be old enough to read fairytales again.’ When that day comes, The Starless Sea will be waiting for you.”
