Susanna Clarke discusses her remarkable debut novel, the BookSense Book of the Year, Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell with her friend, novelist Neil Gaiman. Set in an alternate version of England in the early 1800s, an England in which the people yearn to recapture the practical magic of an earlier era, this fantasy novel combines the wit of Jane Austen with rollicking adventure and hilarious scholarly footnotes.

    " It is a bit hard to really get into the story, but after reading the half I really enjoyed it and really like it^^ Even if it is really exhausting with all this 1024 pages, but I will never regret reading it! "

    " Very underwhelming. I started out impressed with the tone of the book, which does mimic Austen-era writing very well, but the story never really gripped me. It kind of floundered around. This would have made a much better 300 page novel than an 800+ page one. "

    " The novel was an epic one. Let us begin with that. Certainly on par; nay, better than The harry Potter Series. However, that is not saying that much in my case, as I had my reservations re: said series. The ingenuity in the story is definitely noted, but, like some other books, that did not necessarily translate into a great novel overall. I think one of the biggest drawbacks here was that I was inquiring, "Is this over yet?" on more occasions than I ought to have been. I will admit that I can only imagine the thought processes and/or imagination that went into some of the more complicated aspects in the story, such as How Faerie World operated, etc. That I could definitely appreciate. As to the writing quality, it was nothing extraordinary... The Old English I personally could have done without. Had this been shortened by about... 2/3 I believe it could have been one of my favorites... "

    " Starts out like Jane Austin meets the magical world, but then progresses into very exciting strangeness. I've read this one over and over again. "
