I'm currently reading books on a magician theme, as inspired by Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell. This had more of a stage-magician and weird science subject, but I've seen the movie and was curious about the book. I think the movie focused the plot a little bit better, but the book still had a creepy ending that the movie couldn't quite match. It was an all right read, and I didn't have any urge to set it down. But apart from the ending, I think I was kept reading because of an interest in the subject and an appreciation for the atmosphere of the book.

Rory This cover is SO much better than the original cover, at least.

Also, I LOVED Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell. Do you think they'll ever make a movie out of that?
