    O Circo dos Sonhos por Erin Morgenstern (-Eva-, BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: Magical rivalries are at the heart of these unconventional Fantasy novels, which play out over decades and against elaborate, atmospheric 19th-century backdrops. Their initially relaxed pacing gains momentum as the various narrative threads dramatically converge.… (mais)

    The King of Elfland's Daughter por Lord Dunsany (billiecat)
    billiecat: Clarke's descriptions of Faerie share the dreamlike qualities of Dunsany's novel.

    Sorcery and Cecelia, or, The Enchanted Chocolate Pot por Patricia C. Wrede (fyrefly98)
    fyrefly98: Both have the same "Jane-Austen-meets-Harry-Potter" vibe to them; "Jonathan Strange" is denser and more grown-up, while "Sorcery & Cecelia" is funnier and more of a romp.

    The Dark Is Rising por Susan Cooper (ErlendSkjelten)
    ErlendSkjelten: I don't remember making this recommendation, much less why I did; they are very different books. I think I felt that they both conjured up the same mystic mood, and they are both concerned with a very British magic.

I tried reading this book twice previously (when it first came out and a few years later), but apparently the old adage that “third time’s the charm” rings true, since it wasn’t until this year that I was actually able to pick up the book and read it cover to cover. Since its publication there’s been a mini-series released by BBC, which I rather enjoyed even for its slightly slow pacing, and much praise heaped on the novel itself, but both times that I attempted to read it I got bogged down in Clarke’s language and the relatively large cast of characters. Yet having just finished reading the book, neither of these problems stopped me this time around, and I found myself rather enjoying the long and rather convoluted story.

Clarke may not have the tightest narrative style, nor a particularly concise plotline, but there are so many small moments of sheer magical delight throughout the story that I was kept glued to the pages. The BBC mini-series focused directly on the conflict between the Man with the Thistle-down Hair and the English magicians, Strange and Norrell, which is a fascinating tale of enchanted wives and evil faeries (even in the most forgiving light, the Man with the Thistle-down Hair can’t be redeemed for his selfish and overly violent nature), but Clarke’s novel broadens the spectrum of the plot to encompass the theme of magic returning to England. Clearly magic never left England - people just forgot that they knew it was there (hence the success of Norell and Strange) - yet it is often major events that trigger a wholehearted cultural change. Strange’s and Norell’s adventures are nothing less, as they bring people back to life, fight off Napoleon, and work various enchantments for the benefit of the English government before the remainder of the English population gains access to the magic hidden in England. Yet the finale sees them trapped in Eternal Darkness, even after the accidental defeat of the Man with the Thistle-down Hair and the return of Arabella Strange and Lady Pole to the waking world, so clearly their adventures (and England’s) have just begun.

I had high expectations for this book, and although I did find it very interesting in places, over all I found it hard going and I didn't feel connected to the characters. I normally love long twisty books, but not this time. I love the concept of the story and the way magic is portrayed, but not one I will read again. ( )
  LouieAndTheLizard | Feb 24, 2021 |
Overall I enjoyed reading this book but I did find it very long and felt like a good editor might have made it an incredible book, or divided it out into a series of book

The characters are certainly memorable, and the plot is unique and interesting. It just seems to grow thin in places and one must slog through in order to pick up the story again.

Overall I'm glad I read it, but also glad that it's done. ( )

Well-written but way too damn British for my taste. ( )
  Diamond-Mike | Feb 10, 2021 |
I had read this a while back and thought it was plodding and mostly dull, but decided to give it a second chance. I'm glad I did, as it's actually delightful and incredibly engrossing. I look forward to more from Susanna Clarke. ( )

Her deftly assumed faux-19th century point of view will beguile cynical adult readers into losing themselves in this entertaining and sophisticated fantasy.

Many charmed readers will feel, as I do, that Susanna Clarke has wasted neither her energies nor our many reading hours.
adicionada por conceptDawg | editarNew York Times, Gregory Maguire (Sep 5, 2004)
 
Susanna Clarke, who resides in Cambridge, England, has spent the past decade writing the 700-plus pages of this remarkable book. She's a great admirer of Charles Dickens and has produced a work every bit as enjoyable as The Pickwick Papers, with more than a touch of the early Anne Rice thrown in for good measure.
 
"Move over, little Harry. It’s time for some real magic."
 
A chimera of a novel that combines the dark mythology of fantasy with the delicious social comedy of Jane Austen into a masterpiece of the genre that rivals Tolkien.

At sixteen she spoke -- not only French, Italian & German -- which are part of any lady's commonplace accomplishments -- but all the languages of the civilized (and uncivilized) world. She spoke the language of the Scottish Highlands (which is like singing). She spoke Basque, which is a language which rarely makes any impression upon the brains of any other race, so that a man may hear it as often and as long as he likes, but never afterwards be able to recall a single syllable of it. She even learnt the language of a strange country which, Signor Tosetti had been told, some people believed still existed, although no one in the world could say where it was. (The name of the country was Wales.)
It is also true that that his hair had a reddish tinge and, as everybody knows, no one with red hair can ever truly be said to be handsome.
"Soldiers, I am sorry to say, steal everything." He thought for a moment and then added, "Or at least ours do."
"Can a magician kill a man by magic?" Lord Wellington asked Strange. Strange frowned. He seemed to dislike the question. "I suppose a magician might," he admitted "but a gentleman never could."
It may be laid down as a general rule that if a man begins to sing, no one will take any notice of his song except his fellow human beings. This is true even if his song is surpassingly beautiful. Other men may be in raptures at his skill, but the rest of creation is, by and large, unmoved. Perhaps a cat or a dog may look at him; his horse, if it is an exceptionally intelligent beast, may pause in cropping the grass, but that is the extent of it. But when the fairy sang, the whole world listened to him. Stephen felt clouds pause in their passing; he felt sleeping hills shift and murmur; he felt cold mists dance. He understood for the first time that the world is not dumb at all, but merely waiting for someone to speak to it in a language it understands. In the fairy's song the earth recognized the names by which it called itself.
