    Susanna Clarke Æ 5 Read Read ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Æ Susanna Clarke review Jonathan Strange Mr Norrell Sigh just what we need another revolutionary unusual fantasy book by an author with a practiced mastery of tone When will authors like Clarke realize that what the fantasy genre needs are pseudo medieval monomyths that sprawl out into fifteen volumes?Her magic didn't conveniently solve all of the characters' problems instead they wasted time thinking through conflicts and then had to solve them by taking action; how dull is that?

    EBOOK NEW (Jonathan Strange Mr Norrell) Ê Susanna Clarke Jesus Christ this book reads like molasses It's like the author took every book from her Brit Lit class and consciously tried to make it wordier and longer than all of them combined I get the point she wants to make but I honestly could not get past the second chapter It also was so incredibly pretentious The whole thing has this superior feel like having a conversation with someone who is absolutely reassured of how much smart

Jonathan Strange Mr Norrell

review Jonathan Strange Mr Norrell Jonathan Strange Mr Norrell characters ¾ 5 Find another practicing magician Mr Norrell accepts Strange as a pupil But it soon becomes clear that their ideas of what English magic ought to be are very different For Mr Norrell their power is something to be cautiously controlled while Jonathan Strange will always be attracted to the wildest most perilous forms of magic He becomes fascinated by the ancient shadowy figure of the Raven King a child taken by fairies who became king of both England and Faerie and the most legendary magician of all Eventually Strange's heedless pursuit of long forgotten magic threatens to destroy not only his partnership with Norrell but everything that he holds dea. Although Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell turns out to be a book I dearly love I m afraid I can t recommend it to just anyone Whether you ll like it or not will truly depend on what you expect it to be If you wish for a fast paced excitement then this book is probably not for you Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell is a blend of meticulously researched historical fiction and imaginative fantasy sprinkled here and there with biting social comedy and written in a style similar to Austen s which is of course relevant to the age in which the story takes place the early years of 19th century England The plot mainly focuses in the revival of magic in England an art that has been long fallen into disuse but still theoretically studied by many Among these people two gentlemen who actually practise the art come into the spotlight the tedious reclusive Gilbert Norrell and his pupil Jonathan Strange The story further unfurls with the appearance of a certain silver haired fairy Norrell s and Strange s involvements in the Napoleonic Wars and also the revelation of the prophecy of The Raven King in all its mythical grandeurJS MN is a long meandering read that needs to be slowly savored not to be rushed I started reading it feeling a little bit wary myselfthe first hundred pages being undeniably dragging But I soon came to a certain point where something just clicked and from there on it was almost impossible to put it down This book is over 1000 pages long and yet as I close the book in completion I asked myself of how 1000 pages could seemingly be so terribly shortFor me who end up liking this book JS MN is a true charmer compelling in all its subtlety imaginative witty and beautifully written Clarke has a flair in language use She employs the right words at all the right moments to make us feel exactly what she intends us to feel and see exactly what she wants us to see With this ability at hands she creates a fine balance of myths magic history warfare politic and mundane domestic life Clarke treats magic as an object of study in the truest sense Some parts of the book read like an academic essay with long studious arguments of why such and such magic can or cannot be done various citations from the works of great magicians long dead and insanely lengthy footnotes which people ever so often think as annoying distractions yet I found them really fun to read She also has a perfect grasp about the age in which her characters are living Thus her writing comes off convincingly like a product of 19th century British literature though it has the virtue of being comprehensible perfectly written with all the old spellings chuse sopha shew surprize Clarke s characterization is definitely one of the best elements in the book The characters be it the main protagonists or otherwise are solidly drawn and interesting as lovable as they are flawed Strange though not someone who is altogether admirable is charming and generally likable and yet narrow minded Norrell with all his jealousy and peevishness feels all too human that I couldn t help but sympathise with him even when I didn t want toA literary merit though this book is please be warned that not everyone will find it fascinating If you re halfway through the book and it still doesn t piue your interest put it down then save your precious time But if you re halfway through and already been absorbed it s very likely you ll be graced with something that stays with you days and weeks after you finished reading it I know it did this for me Definitely one of those rare treats I d be willingly and gladly re read each year

review Jonathan Strange Mr Norrell Jonathan Strange Mr Norrell characters ¾ 5 Librarian note Alternate cover edition of 9780765356154Sophisticated witty and ingeniously convincing Susanna Clarke's magisterial novel weaves magic into a flawlessly detailed vision of historical England She has created a world so thoroughly enchanting that eight hundred pages leave readers longing for English magicians were once the wonder of the known world with fairy servants at their beck and call; they could command winds mountains and woods But by the early 1800s they have long since lost the ability to perform magic They can only write long dull papers about it while fairy servants are nothing but a fading memoryBut at Hurtfew Abbey in Yorks. 35 I FINALLY FINISHED

review Jonathan Strange Mr Norrell Jonathan Strange Mr Norrell characters ¾ 5 Hire the rich reclusive Mr Norrell has assembled a wonderful library of lost and forgotten books from England's magical past and regained some of the powers of England's magicians He goes to London and raises a beautiful young woman from the dead Soon he is lending his help to the government in the war against Napoleon Bonaparte creating ghostly fleets of rain ships to confuse and alarm the FrenchAll goes well until a rival magician appears Jonathan Strange is handsome charming and talkative the very opposite of Mr Norrell Strange thinks nothing of enduring the rigors of campaigning with Wellington's army and doing magic on battlefields Astonished to. I so wanted to like this book The idea is just wonderful I was so pleased for a while to be in that world a historical England I love the dialogue and descriptions And I love the idea of magic in an otherwise real setting as though it were a normal part of our actual world But it was so frustrating to read after a while The footnotes auuuugh the footnotes They were cute at first because the book is written sort of like a history book from that period But after a while they were just so long and so unrelated to the main story that they became seriously cumbersome And just when the story would be getting involved she d fast forward 2 years or 10 years and the last part of the story though unresolved would be pretty much forgotten Boooo The end was annoying or rather the way the main characters reacted to it It s fiction it s fantasy but when you re writing about basic human beings who have otherwise behaved consistently throughout the book and then they react to something in a way you know isn t consistent and isn t how people would act it pops the bubble of your suspended disbelief and sort of ruins the story Another annoying thing is that we keep waiting to learn about why Mr Norrell acts the way he does but we never do learn He s just a pill and that s it That s poor writing No motivations for him no insight into his character So really he just serves a function in the book that could have been served by an inanimate objectOverall the book is just filled with too many things that seem to have no point It s not that they aren t interesting by themselves or couldn t have been made into something wonderful it s just that they are tossed out there randomly and not connected to anything In that way the cold dispassionate history book style disappoints because what we really want is a story We want to care about the characters and see resolution of some kind BoooThere will apparently be books set in this world but I won t be reading them It s just too much of a time investment in a seemingly great idea that doesn t pay off
