PRAISE FOR JONATHAN STRANGE AND MR NORRELL: Unquestionably the finest English novel of the fantastic written in the last seventy years. It’s funny, moving, scary, otherworldly, practical and magical … Closing Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell after 800 pages my only regret was that it wasn’t twice the length
This is, in both the precise and the colloquial sense, a fabulous book … a highly original and compelling work (SUNDAY TIMES)
An elegant and witty historical fantasy which deserves to be judged on its own (considerable) merit (SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)
Full of spells, bad weather, statues that talk, haunted ballrooms and sinister gentlemen with thistledown hair … be enchanted! (ELLE)
The language of the book is such a pleasure you’d probably want to go and read it anyway
Best novel I’ve ever read
