    Two magicians shall appear in England. The first shall fear me; the second shall long to behold me Centuries ago, when magic still existed in England, the greatest magician of them all was the Raven King. A human child brought up by fairies, the Raven King blended fairy wisdom and human reason to create English magic. Now, at the beginning of the nineteenth century, he is barely more than a legend, and England, with its mad King and its dashing poets, no longer believes in practical magic. Then the reclusive Mr Norrell of ... Show more

My favorite fantasy since JRR Tolkien

by Louis@HoustonBookClub.com on Feb 2, 2012

I couldn't believe how I could have missed such a wonderful book. Not since I read JRR Tolkien as a teenager has there been such an entertaining book, and a magical literary journey. While it's not action packed or fast paced, it makes the pleasure last, like sipping fine wine instead of downing it ... More

delightful read

by auntmar on Apr 3, 2009

This book starts a bit slow and there are too many characters introduced in the beginning to keep up with. But as you get into it, you are somehow transported back in time to the early 1900's and can witness the Napoleonic wars and hobnob with Lord Byron. The world of lost magical possibilities is ...

*yawn*

by greenenvelope on Feb 15, 2007

I got through two thirds of this book and I finally got tired of waiting for something interesting to happen. The premise of magic in a Jane Austen-type of setting is what lured me in, but the pacing in this book is so poor that I couldn't stick with it. Clarke is not a bad writer, but she ain't no ... More
