This was described to me as a kind of "grown-ups' Harry Potter," but it really isn't. Clarke manages to write in a very Victorian British style, and peppers her book with footnotes that build up the mythology and history of Norrell's world. It's a very long read, and it might be tough for some, but it is completely worth the effort.
