Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell

18 Jan

I don’t normally do book reviews.  In fact, this is barely a book review at all, for all it’s marked with that tag.  Suffice to say that if you have not read Susanna Clarke’s “Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell”, you ought to get right to it.  I know I’m woefully out of date, the book being published in 2004, but I can only say it’s the best historical fantasy (or possibly fantasy in general) that I have had the fortune to read.  Damn long, though.  But worth it.

    If you liked The Big One, you should read Clarke’s small book of short stories, set in the same universe: The Ladies of Grace Adieu and Other Stories. Fantastic stuff!

    Hey there, Nicole. Thanks for dropping by. 🙂

    Yes, I have heard of the book, and it sounds quite interesting. Although it’s not high on my already enormous TBR list, it’s definitely in my future.
