あらすじ・解説

Stories tucked away on every floor. No. 10 Luckenbooth Close is an archetypal Edinburgh tenement.

The devil’s daughter rows to the shores of Leith in a coffin. The year is 1910, and she has been sent to a tenement building in Edinburgh by her recently deceased father to bear a child for a wealthy man and his fiancée. The harrowing events that follow lead to a curse on the building and its residents - a curse that will last for the rest of the century.

Over nine decades, No. 10 Luckenbooth Close bears witness to emblems of a changing world outside its walls. An infamous madam, a spy, a famous Beat poet, a coal miner who fears daylight, a psychic: these are some of the residents whose lives are plagued by the building’s troubled history in disparate, sometimes chilling ways. The curse creeps up the nine floors, and an enraged spirit world swells to the surface, desperate for the true horror of the building’s longest kept secret to be heard.

Luckenbooth is a bold, haunting and dazzlingly unique novel about the stories and secrets we leave behind and the places that hold them long after we are gone.

Fantastically dark.

Another fantastic novel from Jenni Fagan (if you haven't already, listen to Panopticon and Sunlight Pilgrims, you don't be disappointed!). Luckenbooth is fantastically dark, and brings to life to undercurrent of Edinburgh, touching on all the best Scottish literary tropes. It's a fiery novel too, with strong political sentiment weaved through the characters lives. A very profound novel for the world we live in today.

The characters are strong and I feel as though I've met each one personally. The narration is great, with actors taking several characters each. This isn't an issue as the writing and performance set them apart. One of the Scottish accents is off which grates a bit, but thankfully it's not a main character, so we don't encounter much of it.

I highly recommend the book.

Disappointing I think and regret

I’ve listened an hour or two writing this and write with a heavy heart. The language is polished as you would expect. I’m sure the story and telling made sense to Jenni but it makes no sense to me I fear. My fault more than the author, perhaps....

Another great story by Jenni.

A tale through Edinburgh time. Twisty, turny and weird as f. Really enjoyed this work. Would recommend to those looking for a journey into the strange.

Not for me

Sorry. That unnatural intonation in that, I think, nasal Edinburgh whine, was too much for me. I lasted about an hour. Maybe I will try and read rather than listen

Yum, The Terrible House

I loved the atmosphere of this book. Woman after woman deliciously and dangerously inhabiting Luckenbooth.
