    Two magicians shall appear in England. The first shall fear me; the second shall long to behold me The year is 1806. England is beleaguered by the long war with Napoleon, and centuries have passed since practical magicians faded into the nation's past. But scholars of this glorious history discover that one remains: the reclusive Mr Norrell whose displays of magic send a thrill through the country. Proceeding to London, he raises a beautiful woman from the dead and summons an army of ghostly ships to terrify the French. Yet ... 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 ...

Worth the lengthy read

by greebs on May 10, 2007

Perhaps the most amazing thing about Susanna Clarke's debut novel, Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell is not the tales of magic, the land of Fairie, the way the English supposedly cast spells over Napoleon Bonaparte to win the war...but the fact that Clarke got a 800-plus page novel published as her very ...

*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
