Reading Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke

blurb from Amazon:

Any book touted as the ‘adult Harry Potter’ runs the risk of attracting critical parries from swords of the double-edged variety. If this wasn’t enough, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell--the debut novel from Susanna Clarke--also invites comparisons with Jane Austen. Set in the early nineteenth-century, the action moves from genteel drawing rooms—albeit where a mischievous Faerie king sips tea with the wife of a very human government minister, to the bloody battleground of Waterloo, where giant hands of earth drag men to their doom. The juxtaposition of perfectly realised magical worlds and the everyday one with which JK Rowling and Philip Pullman so successfully captured our imaginations and the social comedy of Austen and Thackeray can easily be recognised. But less easy to pastiche is the ability of these writers to induce sheer narrative pleasure, and it is Clarke’s great achievement that she succeeds with this hugely enjoyable read.
Gilbert Norrell is determined to single-handedly rehabilitate his sanitised and patriotic version of English magic, which has suffered a post-Enlightenment neglect after a richly dark history. He ruthlessly secures his place as England’s only magician in two marvellously drawn feats. First, he brings the statutes of York Cathedral to life and then, to facilitate his entry into London society, he brings a young bride-to-be back from the dead--a feat with terrible consequences. However, another more naturally gifted magician—Jonathan Strange—emerges to become his pupil and later his rival. Strange becomes increasingly obsessed with the Raven King—the medieval lord-magician of the North of England and pursues his desire to recruit a fairy servant to the edge of madness. Whilst the differing characters of Norrell and Strange give the book a central human conflict, it is the tension between the dual natures of civilised and wilder magic that lends it a metaphysical texture that shades the narrative with wonderful and troubling descriptions of ships made of rain, paths between mirrors and faerie roads leading out of England to a bleak yet dazzling realm. Fortunately, the precision of her storytelling never reigns in Clarke’s prodigious imagination.

Clarke’s broad canvas of characters—including Wellington, Napoleon and Bryon, locations and tones are masterfully realised. However, sometimes her own enchantment with them leads her to drop her pace, although even at almost 800 pages, this is a book to which you’ll muster up little resistance. Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell is the perfect novel to take up residence in as the nights get longer. -- Fiona Buckland

Just finished Just One Look by Harlan Coben, the first thriller/mystery to keep me guessing until the last few pages in an absolute age. Possibly the best book I've read in a while too.

Although his last one "Swords of Night and Day" was pretty dire.

His last book was dire and yet he "rocks"?

I used to love Gemmell as a kid, but re-read a couple of my favourites recently and cant believe how bad they were. I dont dare reread any of the others as I may be similarly disappointed.

Generally, yes, considering he wrote a good dozen or so that I did like.
Similarly, I really dislike some of Iain Banks work, yet I still consider him one of my favourite authors.

My favourite Pratchett.

Finished Durant's book and A Bridge Too Far. Am now mid way through Harlequin by Ian Watson and half way into Second Foundation (book 3 of the first Foundation trilogy) by Isaac Asimov.

1984 is a fantastic book, you'll love it lungers.

Imagine a boot stamping on a human face, forever...

Halfway through a collection of Phillip K Dick novels, which are quite good.

Also reading Bill Bryson a short history of everything which is good.

Bought and read the latest Pratchett too which is fun.

Can thoroughly recommend 'Cheese Monkeys' by Chip Kidd (what a brain that man has got... ) and for an odd read 'Pink' by Gus Van Sant.

Oh I forgot... also recently read "Vernon 'God' Little" the booker prize winner.

Pleasantly surprised, found it an entertaining read.. its a nauseating (and satirical) look at a backwater US state town and a gobshite of a boy who gets stitched up by a combination of chance and unscrupulous reporters and officials.

Can recommend it. Tho fear it may be for hollywood treatment some time soon :/

Night Watch for me - it took a while but the watch books have edged out the death books.

Saying that though, I am really into all of them.

Still doing my Spanish (just about) and havent made much progress through Red Rabbit...

Watch books are the best series, but Night Watch was a bit weird for the whole time travel thing... Men At Arms is one of my faves though, along with Feet of Clay.

Aye, great book. A little bit clichéd anti-Americanism, but still very good.

Just started robin hobbs Fools Fate (I got it for 2.99 from the works books shop bot bad huh). I hope to read Ring worlds Children but not till its out on paper back. I still mean to get into Micheal Moorcock. Hopefully i will next year.

Anyone read the book of the New Sun, books by Gene Wolfe? I quite liked them may read them in the future again.
