I've read almost all of Banville's novels and have yet to be disappointed. I think The Infinities is among his best. Although reviews in the NY Times and New Yorker appeared to criticize this book because of the opulence of the language on display (the purported self indulgence of the writer) I find this to be one of Banville's greatest merits. He writes consistently beautiful prose. Perhaps, in this country, we've gotten too accustomed to simplistic writing that does little more than move a story along. Banville is not your writer if this is what you're looking for in a novel. If, on the other hand, you're looking for a beautifully writen book that addresses serious ideas I heartily recommend The Infinities.
