So, even some of the experts agree! Mar 25, Bradley rated it it was amazing Shelves: fantasy , shelf , top-one-hundred. In other words, take the roads, listen to the rocks, and above all, DON'T TRUST THE FARIES.
This was a classic when I first read it and it's just as good on any re-read. That's why I put this in my top list.
Let's fight with Wellington and defeat Napoleon with magic! Let's get into major trouble, get majorly paranoid, and do it with arrogance and style!
Above all, this is a buddy novel that starts really rocky, continues worse, ends in mistrust, and yet, is quintessentially English.
In other words, polite and often uplifting. I think it will always be. View all 18 comments. After a hiatus of several centuries since it was actively practiced, magic is back in early 19th century England.
Clarke has created an alternate, magical history, in which England had once been divided between north and south, and a temporal and a fairy kingdom.
Stuffy intellectuals satisfy themselves with studying the writings of the past, forming debating societies. But in a person emerges who dares to actually practice magic.
Eddie Marsden as Mr Norrell - from AMC networks Mr Norrell is After a hiatus of several centuries since it was actively practiced, magic is back in early 19th century England.
Eddie Marsden as Mr Norrell - from AMC networks Mr Norrell is an arrogant fellow, convinced not only that he is the only decent practical magician in England, but that it would be best if he were the only one allowed to practice at all.
He proceeds to play politics to sustain, increase and legitimize his monopoly. The emergence of a second practical magician presents a challenge, solved in the short term by taking on Jonathan Strange as a student.
Bertie Carvel as Jonathan Strange Both magicians want to use their talent for the good of their country, and perform amusing and not so amusing spells on the French enemy.
Ultimately they are faced with the growing emergence of a real, powerful, underlying magical realm. It intrudes on their lives and forces them to confront darkness while trying to master the unsuspected reality.
It offers a look at how the new use the machinery of government to create a sinecure, how a need to impress can lead to corruption. It is fun to read, but does take quite a long time, and has sections in which it drags.
It should probably have been shorter by a hundred or two hundred pages. Susanna Clarke - from Minnesota public radio Meanderings are many.
In short, or long, it was enjoyable, and is recommended but not to the highest degree. Several award committees disagreed, holding it in significantly higher esteem.

Lifeless The overwhelming feeling after finishing Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell was a sense of relief and then puzzlement that I committed so much time to complete the task.
I found the book a great disappointment on various levels, and for once I have to say that the TV production was so much better than the novel.
The characters were generally uninteresting including the two main protagonists. This is an era where magic has once again surfaced and even the magicians are unsure of their capabil Lifeless The overwhelming feeling after finishing Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell was a sense of relief and then puzzlement that I committed so much time to complete the task.
This is an era where magic has once again surfaced and even the magicians are unsure of their capability and the scope of their power.
Mr Norell is a studious rather drab character intent on learning his craft from books and manuscripts. His arrogance wants him to be considered England's only legitimate magician.
Jonathan Strange is more a practical magician and lends a hand in fighting Napolean. Very bizarrely his magic seems almost whimsical and the English soldiers still die in huge numbers.
The plot is so weak that the involvement with the Napoleonic Wars didn't generate much interest. It was all very flat. What can be said is that the detail of the surroundings and story are considerable - even with footnotes to describe minutiae.
The setting was okay and I did feel that the atmosphere of early 19th century England came through well. I am surprised this book received the plaudits that it has and I can only assume that the context of the story was a big draw.
We all want to believe that magic exists and that somewhere a magician is just waiting to develop the skills handed down from Merlin. If that was to happen I can only hope that it's NOT to someone like Strange or Norrell and that there would be a wonderful plot of twists and surprises, with captivating characters to bring it all to life.
I may have been tempted to consider a higher rating if it had not been so long. The length really is a problem in a story that drifts at such a slow pace, with details I couldn't care less about.
If stories can affect the heart rate from high intensity to cardio, fat burn, walking and resting, then this will set the heart rate to coma.
Tired of your workaday lives, Need to get away for a while? Come, sit a spell Let Susanna tell you a story.
Norrell are two magicians attempting, each in their own way, to change that and restore magic to England. I can admit that it took me a while to find my legs here, acquire my own rhythm with the writing and the story.
In many ways this reads like a Tired of your workaday lives, Need to get away for a while? In many ways this reads like a history lesson The entire aspect and nature of magic and its history are all carefully and explicitly laid out, fully annotated with historical references that appear as footnotes which while bitter at first, soon became delicious little bits that nourished and enriched.
I came to crave them. Susanna so deftly describes the two main protagonists, the magicians, so intricately, as to impart an intimate understanding of each of them.
This was no easy task because various parts of it — hawthorn twigs, elder branches, strands of ivy, mistletoe and witches broom — had insinuated themselves among his clothes, limbs and hair during the night or glued themselves to him with ice.
He sat up. He did not seem in the least surprised to find he had an audience; one would almost have supposed from his behaviour that he had been expecting it.
He looked at them all and gave several disparaging sniffs and snorts. He ran his fingers through his hair, removing dead leaves, bits of twig and half a dozen earwigs.
In doing so, he revealed that his neck and throat were ornamented with an odd pattern of blue lines, dots, crosses and circles.
Then he wrapped his neckcloth back about his neck and, having thus completed his toilet to his satisfaction, he rose to his feet. A kind of a hush, seemingly impenetrable, descended about me.
A strange sense of quiet fell, like one might find in the wee hours of the morning. I relaxed, shook off the shackles of day to day and settled in, wholly immersed now and in no particular hurry, on this long, long journey.
I stretched out my legs, met the man with the thistle-down hair and considered the colour of a heartache. I visited ballrooms and battlefields, travelled faerie roads, and searched for the Raven King.
I watched the birds as they came to my feeder and fell away, to lost-hope house and all the mirrors of the world, utterly enchanted, and I believed.
It was as if a door had opened somewhere. Or possibly a series of doors. There was a sensation as of a breeze blowing into the house and bringing with it the half- remembered scents of childhood.
There was a shift in the light which seemed to cause all the shadows in the room to fall differently. There was nothing more definite than that, and yet, as often happens when some magic is occurring, both Drawlight and the lady had the strongest impression that nothing in the visible world could be relied upon any more.
A tall mirror hung upon the wall above the sopha where the lady sat. It shewed a second great white moon in a second tall dark window and a second dim-mirror room.
But Drawlight and the lady did not appear in the mirror room at all. Instead there was a kind of an indistinctness, which became a sort of shadow, which became the dark shape of someone coming towards them.
From the path which this person took, it could clearly be seen that the mirror room was not like the original at all and that it was only by odd tricks of lighting and perspective — such as one might meet with in the theatre- that they appeared to be the same.
It seemed that the mirror room was actually a long corridor. The hair and coat of the mysterious figure were stirred by a wind which could not be felt in their own room and though he walked briskly towards the glass which separated the two rooms, it was taking him some time to reach it.
But finally he reached the glass and then there was a moment when his dark shape loomed very large behind it and his face was still in shadow.
Susanna Clarke tells a story that spills over with wonder. This one is coming to the island with me. Dec 12, Diane rated it really liked it Shelves: audiobooks , british-charm , fantasy.
I finally finished! My paperback was more than 1, pages long, so this is a triumph. Norrell is a book that I started out loving, but the middle part dragged so much that I grew impatient for the story to end.
I feel so differently about the two halves of the book that I wish I could issue two Goodreads ratings.
Let's start with what I liked about this novel. Susanna Clarke has a great imagination and a good sense of humor.
The story is set in the early s in England a I finally finished! The story is set in the early s in England and follows the adventures of two magicians, Mr.
Strange and Mr. They have different opinions about magic, and while they start out as collaborators, they later become enemies.
At different times, both magicians are enlisted to help the British Army and Navy in the Napoleonic Wars.
The extensive battle scenes are what started to drag down the book. The story also involves a spiteful fairy, who likes to steal people away to his kingdom.
The story builds until there is a fateful showdown between the mean fairy and the magicians. There's a lot else going on, but to try and summarize it all would drive me mad.
Parts of this book were charming and amusing, and I sometimes smiled while reading, more so in the first half. Clarke's wit has been compared to Jane Austen's, but let's not get carried away, people.
I'll grant that it's amusing, and Clarke captured some foibles of human nature. But this wouldn't make my list of things I regularly recommend to fans of Miss Austen.
My complaints about the book revolve mostly around its epic, meandering story, which did not have to be 1, pages. This book was desperately in need of a tougher editor.
Clarke also included lots of footnotes, most of which were too clever by half. I listened to this on audio, and the footnotes were read at the indicated place in the text, but if I had just read the print book I would have quickly grown irritated and skimmed all of them.
My other frustration with this book was how dim-witted Strange and Norrell were. They were ridiculously slow to catch on to what the evil fairy was doing, despite the fact that they were supposed to be clever, powerful magicians.
It seemed like the author was dragging out their ignorance in order to lengthen the story, which really didn't need any lengthening.
While I do have complaints about this book, I did enjoy a good part of it. These epic novels are so difficult to rate. I think I'll give the first half a 4 and the last half a 3.
I'll be generous and rate this a 3. Recommended, with caution, to those who like magical stories and British humor. Favorite Quotes "Can a magician kill a man by magic?
And they read English novels! Did you ever look into an English novel? Well, do not trouble yourself. It is nothing but a lot of nonsense about girls with fanciful names getting married.

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. View all 35 comments.

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?
Norrell is still a midth century Neoclassicist who lives by rules and structure, while Strange is a late-century Romantic who is ruled by free, uncontrolled emotion.
As far as I can tell, the military uniforms and gear seem right. But I thought it was well done all around.
Agree that the ending could be better, but the author is finally working on a sequel novel, and if we live long enough, we may see better things in an upcoming series.
I am a big fan of the show, and I really appreciate this post about the costumes! I particularly enjoy Mr.
I am desperate to find a similar cap to give as a gift. Do you know the proper name for that type of cap or how I might go about finding one?
Might be more Victorian. Dunno for sure. I absolutely loved the series though. Story wise, knew exactly what to leave out and what to put in.

What remains is the rivalry at its center, prickly and loving, between the two magicians of the title: chipper Jonathan Strange Bertie Carvel and dyspeptic Gilbert Norrell Eddie Marsan.
The problem with the miniseries, written by Peter Harness and directed by Toby Haynes, is its lack of emotional potency, at least in the first two episodes.
Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell is not so much about good versus evil but the the clash of the men's two very different natures -- reason versus romanticism, intellect versus emotion.
