He hardly ever spoke of magic, and when he did it was like a history lesson and no one could bear to listen to him.
Strange frowned. He seemed to dislike the question. It is the contention of Mr Norrell of Hanover-square that everything belonging to John Uskglass must be shaken out of modern magic, as one would shake moths and dust out of an old coat.
What does he imagine he will have left? If you get rid of John Uskglass you will be left holding the empty air. See John Keats, "La Belle Dame sans Merci".

The act of reading has become a chore, a sensation that cannot be condoned or perpetuated. It's been six hundred and eighty pages, and this book has yet to enthrall or surprise.
The character motives baffle, the fantasy elements are uneven, the tone is dry and the story uneventful. Writing a tome of this magnitude is no small feat, but it's achieved to greater effect by Jonathan Stroud in his marvelous book, The Amulet of Samarkand , which I would leap to recommend wh Nope, nope, nope.
Writing a tome of this magnitude is no small feat, but it's achieved to greater effect by Jonathan Stroud in his marvelous book, The Amulet of Samarkand , which I would leap to recommend while warning bookworms to steer clear of this cumbersome book.
The result being this huge-assed, yet entertaining tome on British magic. Way to go, Boz and thanks!! Is this for real, Jeff? Not really random Goodreader.
I had too much coffee this morning and my mind is racing like a sports car driven by Danica Patrick. This book does kind of hit several literary sweet spots with me: Historical Fiction waves to the Duke of Wellington and that walking horn ball poet, Lord Byron , Fantasy and a terrific sense of humor on the part of Susanna Clarke.
The skinny: After centuries, English magic - long dormant - is being revived by a peevish asshat named Mr. He wants to be THE one and only English magician and will spare nothing to block any one else interested in pulling rabbits from hats or doing card tricks.
He reluctantly takes on a pupil, Jonathon Strange. He has his own agenda. And the great and powerful Raven King. Always the Raven King.
After the first descent and some frequent lunch losing swervings and such, the book takes off. As a lazy reader, I always welcome any sort of illustrations in books — especially page books - because I can jump ahead a few pages and feel a sense of accomplishment.
However, the art here was of the murky — just — what — heck — is — that variety. Hey, I read graphic novels and know a thing or two about art.
My advice: skip over them. I hated typing in foot notes when I did school papers and I wish a pox on the family of the dude who invented the footnote.

And even if you believe something is for you, the book still needs to reveal and unfold and delight and surprise and strike emotional chords and climax and conclude to your satisfaction by its end, all while also possessing a writing style you respond to or at least does not detract from your enjoyment.
So its sometimes a wonder we like any bo Most books are not for everyone, and it can occasionally be hard to determine from a cover, a blurb, a sample chapter if something will be for you or not.
So its sometimes a wonder we like any books at all when the stakes and standards are set so high. Add to this of course magic, magic of a nebulous and free variety, no hard and fast system, not lots of smoke though many mirrors , nothing too showy or special, a magic of an earthy, grounded, but still foreign, complicated, dangerous variety, complete with an entire history of magic in England from the 12th century and a whole host of anecdotes and tales and figures from said history that inform the present ideas, intentions and actions.
All of these disparate forces and ideas and characters and influences joined together in one place, and meant to be read as one complete work, of over a thousand pages in my edition, and perhaps understated considering there are two and three page footnotes worked in as well?
This truly is not a book for everyone. But if you read and were intrigued by my sprawling summary, and like reading things in a 19th century style or pastiche, and enjoy fantasy but don't need it to be as obvious or clear cut as modern fantasy novels typically show it, if you think it might be for you and are ready to commit to the novel's length and slow unfolding and building of events and ideas, then I wholeheartedly encourage you to pick up a paper copy, not least because the sheer number of footnotes would be highly aggravating to read in an e version, and settle yourself into bed or a large armchair or your sofa and begin.
But if it is for you, like it is for me, it is likely to vault amongst your most favorite, beloved books, something to re-read again and again, an old, familiar friend to turn to when new reads aren't hitting the mark as near as you'd like, and yet because of its depth and richness and length and detail, you'll find something new that strikes you every time.
When this book is for you, despite my version ending on page , I still crave more. More of charming and arrogant and a bit absent minded but intelligent Strange though perhaps a bit less of the Norrell of most of the book but I am a biased Strangeite, I admit , more of Arabella, more of her fascinating anti-hero of Childermass, more of the soft Mr Segundus, more appearances of Lord Wellington whose portrayal seems both accurate and inspired , more Stephen Black and much, much more of the Raven King and the magic of England.
And I love Susanna Clarke's style, and her all-knowing narrator is filled with dry wit and humor in describing events and characters.
For me the writing pulls the entire ambitious thing together, its craft and execution as important as the characters and plot for me.
I know that most books you won't know until you read them if they are or aren't for you. And sometimes a book is not for you at one time, but then later is, or vice versa.
But I have loved this book for over a decade, from my first, somewhat challenged read of it in when it was first published as a teenager, to now, and this is truly not a book I love from nostalgia, but for itself.
I wouldn't even say it holds up well: even though I don't believe it to be perfect, I read it and am enthralled and amused and delighted and pensive every time, and though I do read it in a new light each time, I am always swept away by it.
I probably read this once a year and have done so since it was first published, and can't see any reason why that would change in the future.
If you think it may not be, or start it and don't quite connect, let it pass: it is too long and coiled and difficult to pin down to waste time or effort on it if you don't like it.
If you read the whole thing and don't like it, I would love to hear your feedback. But if you've read it and know it's for you, then I'm so glad someone else loves this strange, unique, fantastic yet sober tale.
And if you haven't yet read it but you think this may be for you, then I'm overjoyed and somewhat envious that you can encounter and discover this novel and its world for the first time.
View all 24 comments. Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell is Susanna Clarke's bestselling Fantasy History Novel. And it is amazing, astounding, supertastical, and brilliant.
These are all just a handful of the real and created adjectives possible to throw at this tome. Were one to enter into an adjective war this book would defeat them hands down.
For the potency of the words inside is incredible. Jonathan S Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell is Susanna Clarke's bestselling Fantasy History Novel.
Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell is a hauntingly beautiful book. It was well written with the careful and clear strokes of a master artist.
A woman who clearly loves words and language and with abounding wit. An author who believed in her world with passion.
She wasn't simply writing but creating a world with such excellent clarity. If you're looking for more books featuring magicians I'd also recommend: The Prestige and possibly The Night Circus though The Night Circus is a polarising book and should be picked up with that in mind.
That said, The Night Circus is also a relatively easy novel to read compared with this and may appeal more to younger readers.
Also, if you like the idea of reading other historical fantasy novels: His Majesty's Dragon. While of course the urban fantasy magicians such as Harry Dresden in say, Storm Front , or the other similar series, Rivers of London , may also suffice.
This is a magnum opus. If the author never writes another book, she can still be immensely satisfied because this is a masterpiece which is not to say that I don't want more.
Quite some time ago my attention was drawn to a TV show of the same name on Amazon Prime. I read the description and since I can never stay away from magic for very long, I watched it eventually - and fell in love with the peculiar and quirky people starring in this tale of magical adventure, love and loss.
It was only late This is a magnum opus. It was only later that I was told it was based on a book I really should know better by now. Naturally, after having fallen in love with the bantering magicians as well as the scheming faerie, I had to read it and what months are better for such a tale full of crisp misty mornings in the English countryside than October or November?
We start by getting introduced to Mr. Norrell, a quite wealthy English gentleman who considers himself a practical magician. In fact, he considers himself the only actual English magician.
Considering the "society" of magicians he encounters right at the beginning a bunch of fools, mostly , I completely understand why and supported his claim.
He is a bookworm par excellence as can be seen much later when his pupil, the also titular Jonathan Strange, is sent to aid Lord Wellington in the war against Bonaparte and Norrell is supposed to give him 40 of his books to which he cries out in terror he is told by a member of the government that sacrifices must be made in times of war to which he exclaims "Yes yes, but FORTY!
Norrell is all of us. However, he also has a darker side as he wants to forbid magic to anyone but himself and later Mr.
He wants to control every aspect of magic and, indeed, humans and often succeeds in doing so - for example by buying all the books about magic that are left since he's rich, he can get them more easily than others with less of an income.
One day, when he desperately tries to get patronage from an influential politician, he performs a spell that summons a faerie.
Not long after that, Jonathan Strange enters the picture. He is not as much of a bookworm as Norrell and far better at being outgoing and social and therefore has more "friends".
He is also married to the charming and intelligent Arabella. What Jonathan Strange lacks in magical books, he more than makes up for in creativity, passion and talent.
As mentioned above, he becomes Norrell's pupil but after a while it becomes clear that this will not do. The two have too contrary an opinion about the future of English magic with Jonathan Strange wanting as many magicians as possible to revive the glory of the old days and, if possible, to bring back the Raven King once ruler of England and a part of the faerie realm.
After having fought in the war against Napoleon Bonaparte he has also learned something Norrell probably never will: to perform useful magic almost on the spot.
The problem is that these two are up against a force they know nothing about for the faerie Norrell once summoned is scheming and since faeries are not just using magic but are magical creatures, the two magicians are out of their league.
But there is also a prophecy about all these events so perhaps the Raven King has taken precautions all these hundreds of years ago?
And how many people will the faerie take to Lost Hope his domain within the faerie realm? One would think that I've told you too much of what is happening but I really haven't.
This isn't even scratching the surface. However, while this book is certainly what people call a doorstopper, it was never ever boring.
Sure, the pace is slower than in other novels but that was done deliberately. While there are some scenes that could be described as "full of action", that's not what this tale it's about.
It's about the character and heart of magic, about all that enchants us so much when we hear old fairy tales.
It's about the relationship of the titular characters to one another a more magnificent pair I've scarcely seen in literature and to others.
It's about friendship, love, betrayal, being socially awkward, making mistakes, shame. It's about a black servant as much, if not even more, as about the fair English lady he serves.
It's about the tumultuous years shortly before, during and a while after the Napoleonic Wars. It's about the heart and soul of a people, the history of a country, and every individual's place in the world.
Just as remarkable as the tale itself with all its purposefully meandering ways is the enchanting writing style of the author. It sounds authentic, it feels authentic, every word casts its very own spell and transports one through the English rain and mirrors into this candle-lit world with its moving stone statues and sand horses.
I was equally delighted about the narrator, Simon Prebble what a great name! As can be seen from my status updates, I alternated between the audiobook and my print version as my hardcover had these gorgeous and very fitting illustrations rounding off an already glorious reading experience and yes, they nailed each and every cast member on the show in case you were wondering.
I'm so glad I let myself be taken to this magical place and am now itching to revisit it already either by reading the collection of short stories linked to the school of Arabella's brother or by watching the show again.

I have quite some things to say and so little time in which to say these. And now we have the great year of Proust So perhaps it's best to attempt the following: Comparisons with Austen are appropriate for the social commentary and the at times gently and perhaps not so gently snide remarks the narrator makes about the actions of the characters.
But t I have quite some things to say and so little time in which to say these. But this is not Austenesque prose by any stretch of the imagination.
There is an internal consistency to this book that makes it appear the author spent most of the ten years it took her to write the book in plotting - in fact, that wasn't the case, so even more impressive.
Comparisons with Dickens are odd - perhaps my knowledge of Dickens is lacking but the only resemblance is in the sprawling nature Dickens employed and which has been executed to good effect in this book.
With respect to the development of social disparity, Dickens was far more caustic. Was it really nearly pages long?
My goodness, I hardly noticed at all. Footnotes in a fiction book - well, really. How delightful. Brilliant asides which added depth and flavour without detracting or distracting from the story - it helped that I simply read the footnotes at the end of each chapter in the e-book version, of course.
But still. To be savoured rather than spurned. The arbitrariness of the magic - well, yes. That was rather the point. Magic doesn't solve problems, particularly when it's been out of action for such a long time and its two lead proponents are two sides of the same coin not quite Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, but definitely ivory tower scholar and mad, experiential scientist both blind to their lack of understanding of its capriciousness - not for nothing is one labelled Fearfulness and the other Arrogance.
The villain - well, there wasn't. Actually, there was not one single male character with the possible exception of the Hero view spoiler [Stephen Black hide spoiler ] and Dr Greysteel who did not display villainous tendencies of one or other inclination.
The setting - perfect. Just enough historical realism so that suspension of disbelief was never even an obvious factor in slipping into a world where odd occurrences had as much a surreal as a rational explanation.
Accuracy and research of both English folklore and Regency England - could not be faulted. Natty little snippets included Lord Byron being jinxed and a footnote as to his later death.
But the highest accolade I can pay this book - I was not aware I was reading it until I was forcibly interrupted and suddenly became aware of my own existence again.
