In nineteenth-century England, all is going well for rich, reclusive Mr Norell, who has regained some of the power of England's magicians from the past, until a rival magician, Jonathan Strange, appears and becomes Mr Norrell's pupil. A principios del siglo XIX, las hazanas del Rey Cuervo, el mas grande de todos los magos de la Edad Media, perviven en la memoria y la leyenda, pero la practica de la magia ha sido completamente olvidada en Inglaterra. Hasta el dia en que el esquivo senor Norrell, de Hurtfew Abbey, logra que las piedras de la catedral de York hablen.… (más)

    El circo de la noche por Erin Morgenstern (-Eva-, BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: Magical rivalries are at the heart of these unconventional Fantasy novels, which play out over decades and against elaborate, atmospheric 19th-century backdrops. Their initially relaxed pacing gains momentum as the various narrative threads dramatically converge.… (más)

    Sorcery and Cecelia, or, The Enchanted Chocolate Pot por Patricia C. Wrede (fyrefly98)
    fyrefly98: Both have the same "Jane-Austen-meets-Harry-Potter" vibe to them; "Jonathan Strange" is denser and more grown-up, while "Sorcery & Cecelia" is funnier and more of a romp.

    Los seis signos de la luz por Susan Cooper (ErlendSkjelten)
    ErlendSkjelten: I don't remember making this recommendation, much less why I did; they are very different books. I think I felt that they both conjured up the same mystic mood, and they are both concerned with a very British magic.

Apparently I have to read this again. It was so long ago I only recall my general feeling about it, not any specifics. I’ll get to it at some point and update, as many others who seem to know what they are saying indicate it’s worth a revisit ( )
  PeterVize | Dec 2, 2022 |
very entertaining read ( )
  LesFleming | Aug 17, 2022 |
There are a few questions you might ask yourself before you start Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, that I did not know to ask. The first is, do you like Magical Realism? For the most part, I do not. The second is, are you willing to devote the time you must give to the first half of this tome (the first half being rather difficult to endure) to get to the second half, which moves much faster and is fairly engrossing? If I could have the time back, my answer would be probably not. Ah, but then even Strange and Norrell could not give me back my time, I fear.

Perhaps the failing is in me when I read this kind of book, but I cannot find any deeper meaning in it. It is just a fantastic story, meant to entertain. A bit like watching a horror movie (another genre that fails to capture my imagination). I admit that once I got about halfway in, I would not have stopped reading. I needed to know what was going to happen and how this pair of magicians were going to disentangle themselves from the destruction they were courting. Like passing a car wreck that you would prefer to look away from but simply cannot. Sorry, I seem to be given to similes today.

I can see how someone who loves this genre would LOVE this book. The author is artful, the suspense is sustained, and the magic is magical. Not a case of the book not been well-written, just a case of the reader not been the proper audience. I have a book going right now that is set in Victorian England, minus the magic, and I am hoping it will bring me back to the real world that I prefer.

Couldn't do it. A 1/4 of the way through and nothing but a few little hints at the main story showed themselves. I understand the setting and have enough interact with British culture to understand they have a different style of talk for this time period. However, the book gets lost in establishing 30 different characters who aren't all that interesting to get to one character or plot point. Also by 1/4 of the read, only two or three main plot points have showed themselves. So I couldn't do it. A story about magic in England during the Napoleonic Wars? Does that sound like it could be boring? Because it was. Final Grade - F ( )

This is a test review. Do not think poorly of me for this. ( )

Her deftly assumed faux-19th century point of view will beguile cynical adult readers into losing themselves in this entertaining and sophisticated fantasy.
 
Many charmed readers will feel, as I do, that Susanna Clarke has wasted neither her energies nor our many reading hours.
 
Susanna Clarke, who resides in Cambridge, England, has spent the past decade writing the 700-plus pages of this remarkable book. She's a great admirer of Charles Dickens and has produced a work every bit as enjoyable as The Pickwick Papers, with more than a touch of the early Anne Rice thrown in for good measure.
 
"Move over, little Harry. It’s time for some real magic."
 
A chimera of a novel that combines the dark mythology of fantasy with the delicious social comedy of Jane Austen into a masterpiece of the genre that rivals Tolkien.

At sixteen she spoke -- not only French, Italian & German -- which are part of any lady's commonplace accomplishments -- but all the languages of the civilized (and uncivilized) world. She spoke the language of the Scottish Highlands (which is like singing). She spoke Basque, which is a language which rarely makes any impression upon the brains of any other race, so that a man may hear it as often and as long as he likes, but never afterwards be able to recall a single syllable of it. She even learnt the language of a strange country which, Signor Tosetti had been told, some people believed still existed, although no one in the world could say where it was. (The name of the country was Wales.)
It is also true that that his hair had a reddish tinge and, as everybody knows, no one with red hair can ever truly be said to be handsome.
"Soldiers, I am sorry to say, steal everything." He thought for a moment and then added, "Or at least ours do."
"Can a magician kill a man by magic?" Lord Wellington asked Strange. Strange frowned. He seemed to dislike the question. "I suppose a magician might," he admitted "but a gentleman never could."
It may be laid down as a general rule that if a man begins to sing, no one will take any notice of his song except his fellow human beings. This is true even if his song is surpassingly beautiful. Other men may be in raptures at his skill, but the rest of creation is, by and large, unmoved. Perhaps a cat or a dog may look at him; his horse, if it is an exceptionally intelligent beast, may pause in cropping the grass, but that is the extent of it. But when the fairy sang, the whole world listened to him. Stephen felt clouds pause in their passing; he felt sleeping hills shift and murmur; he felt cold mists dance. He understood for the first time that the world is not dumb at all, but merely waiting for someone to speak to it in a language it understands. In the fairy's song the earth recognized the names by which it called itself.
