A fantasy book of manners? Yes, and it works! Original and clever, this lush novel comments on the society and culture of magic. Strange and Norrell have opposing viewpoints on magic's role, and their clash provides a fabulous backdrop for this wonderful book. Just read it! It's great.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Long ago, when magic still existed in England, the greatest magician of all was the Raven King. Now, at the start of the nineteenth century, the Raven King is only a myth and England - with its mad king and its dashing poets - no longer believes in magicians. Then the reclusive Mr Norrell makes his remarkable talents known, and is called upon to help the government in their war against Napoleon. With his brilliant young pupil called Jonathan Strange, the duo dazzle the country with their feats of magic. Elegant, witty, and utterly compelling, Clarke creates a past world of great mystery and beauty. Utterly compelling.

Synopsis:

He becomes fascinated by the shadowy figure of the Raven King, and his heedless pursuit of long-forgotten magic threatens, not only his partnership with Norrell, but everything that he holds dear. Elegant, witty and utterly compelling, "Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell" creates a past world of great mystery and beauty that will hold the reader in thrall until the last page.
