I'm in the last 1/3 of the book.
I noticed an interesting pattern of characters: they like to work in pairs,
Segundus and Honeyfoot, Lancelles and Drawlight, even Norell and Childermass or the fairy and Steven Black in some sense. When they doing stuff in pairs, it usually provides interesting dynamics.

All of those relationships compare, contrast, and reflect on the dynamics between Strange and Norrell, who -- together or not -- form the central relationship in the book. Nothing either of them does is without regard to the other.
