An absolute delight to read. I can't even pinpoint exactly what made this such a great read - too many characters to identify with one particular one of them, no 1 particular plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat dying to find out more. The storyline is many-layered, and when reading one I often temporarily forgot all about the others. I could even easily put it aside for a while to go do something else, or to go to sleep. Still, when reading, it's just so darn interesting, you keep on reading it!

For a bit more concrete info, read the summary provided by Goodreads.

In a nutshell, you could say "Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell" is a historical novel, in which magic is the main character.
