Recommendation: Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell

Genre: Alternative Historical Fantasy

Publisher: Bloomsbury

1806 and magic returns to England with the unravelling relationship between two contrary magicians. This book draws you in and immediately swallows you whole. Gothic-horror overtones and 19th century-pastiche prose conjure one enchanting read and the exquisitely detailed world practically steams from the pages. Pure sophistication: the ‘thinking wo/man’s’ fantasy. Enthralling to the close. At 800+ pages, that’s no mean-feat.
