Kelsey (xtoloveistolivex) | 534 comments Franzz: are you liking Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell? I've been thinking about reading it for awhile...


sara frances (sara_frances) It's kind of slow moving, but I'm enjoying it. Based on what people have said in another book group, I think it's a book that people either love or hate.


Christa (expectation) I read Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell a couple years ago and I think it took me about a month to read but I really liked it.


Kelsey (xtoloveistolivex) | 534 comments Hmm I might pick it up then. =)
