Titus Groan has fled the rambling, ruined and ruinous castle of Gormenghast, desperate for a view of the world beyond. But he wasn't prepared for this! Satellites, death-rays, sinister policemen and underworld outcasts live in a nightmarish contemporary city that feels like something by Wells, Burroughs or Philip K. Dick. Threatened and lost, he begins to miss the home he left; but surely he won't be tempted back?

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Roger Kirkbride | 2/1/2014

    " Ghormengast and Titus Groan give a hint at Mervyn Peake's mental processes; Titus Groan is what happens when they break down altogether. It's difficult to read until you understand what the author was going through; then the thread seems easier but the emotional ride is much harder. Read it with sympathy "

    " Weird, disjointed, and a bizarre edition to a strange series. In a word:YES! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by John | 1/20/2014

    " Still not seeing it as up to the standard of the previous two but probably enjoyed it more this time round than before. The characters simply aren't as appealing/memorable and Titus himself seems more a recipient cipher than a protagonist. Brilliant flashes in the writing ("It was a light to slaughter infants by") rather than any sustained flights of genius. Had Peake been on top of his game then things might have been otherwise. "

    " This book left a lasting impression on me. The intensely weird imagery isn't common in adult fiction and, unlike the previous two in the trilogy, this one reads quickly. Highly recommended. "
