    The Ladies of Grace Adieu af Susanna Clarke (billiecat, celtic)
  2. 341
    Stjernestøv af Neil Gaiman (GreenVelvet, GreenVelvet, GreenVelvet)
    GreenVelvet: Both Stardust and Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell are detailed, well-written and riveting explorations of the world of fairie.
  3. 231
    Little, Big af John Crowley (VisibleGhost)
  4. 221
    Nattens cirkus af Erin Morgenstern (-Eva-, BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: Magical rivalries are at the heart of these unconventional Fantasy novels, which play out over decades and against elaborate, atmospheric 19th-century backdrops. Their initially relaxed pacing gains momentum as the various narrative threads dramatically converge.… (mere)
  5. 212
    The Book of Lost Things af John Connolly (derelicious, jonathankws)
  6. 182
    The King of Elfland's Daughter af Lord Dunsany (billiecat)
    billiecat: Clarke's descriptions of Faerie share the dreamlike qualities of Dunsany's novel.
  7. 226
    Titus Groan : roman af Mervyn Peake (saltmanz)
    saltmanz: Both extrememly atmospheric books, with vivid visuals and memorable characters.
  8. 183
    Den trettende fortælling af Diane Setterfield (majkia)
    majkia: both books evoked the same sort of feeling for me.
  9. 161
    Lud-In-The-Mist af Hope Mirrlees (TheSpecialistsCat)
    TheSpecialistsCat: Both Clarke and Mirrlees lived briefly in Spain, then returned home to write about fairies and also, ostensibly, what it means to be English.

    His Majesty's Dragon af Naomi Novik (Rodo)

    Amuletten fra Samarkand af Jonathan Stroud (clif_hiker)
  12. 131
    Sorcery and Cecelia, or, The Enchanted Chocolate Pot af Patricia C. Wrede (fyrefly98)
    fyrefly98: Both have the same "Jane-Austen-meets-Harry-Potter" vibe to them; "Jonathan Strange" is denser and more grown-up, while "Sorcery & Cecelia" is funnier and more of a romp.
  13. 187
    Den Sorte Rytter af Susan Cooper (ErlendSkjelten)
    ErlendSkjelten: I don't remember making this recommendation, much less why I did; they are very different books. I think I felt that they both conjured up the same mystic mood, and they are both concerned with a very British magic.

Don't know why it took me so long to read this, except of course for the obvious reason of its intimidating length. But now I have, and jeez louise, it is exceedingly good. It's hard to imagine that a single person could sit down and create this whole alternate world and the pitch-perfect narrative that is obviously just one tiny part of it-- she so perfectly replicates a Regency author that it's hard to imagine she's so contemporary as to have another book coming out this year. (One benefit of not reading this in high school like my best friend urged me to is that unlike her I don't have to wait years and years to read Clarke's next work! So, take that!)

I can already tell that I'm going to have to reread, because I gulped it down so fast, and it's so packed with.... just pure stuff! There are stories in here that could take up a whole book and are condensed into a footnote! Though Austen is the obvious touchstone for style, the scope and tone reminded me of Victor Hugo with Les Miserables, packing in so many storylines and sidelines and spanning so many years. No one could quibble on the Waterloo section here, though.

Now I have to gobble down the Ladies of Grace Adieu as a stopgap before Piranesi this fall! ( )

I remembered bits of this story from watching the TV adaptation. The extensive footnotes did begin to annoy me, I don't like my reading flow being interrupted even in non-fiction. To be fair, they could have been ignored by the reader without spoiling the story. However, I did read them all which must mean I engaged with the idea at some level.
I must confess to feeling a bit conflicted about this book, which in essence is a tale about how power corrupts. I feel that the story could have been told in half the pages, but then again, would it have been the same story? Overall I enjoyed it and would give it 5 stars (if only for the length). ( )

It took me a long time to get to this book. And a long time to get through it. But I enjoyed the trip. Especially past the halfway mark it really got my pulse up. Stylish period fantasy. ( )
  Je9 | Aug 10, 2021 |
While not a book for everyone, I do admit there is a lot here to enjoy. It is not a page-turner, and it does not feature the expected archetypes of the genre. It occupies a strange place between fantasy and history where there is as much humour to be found in historical cameos as there are potions and incantations.

But be warned: it is not a light read. It has just enough pull to keep you engaged, but loses itself in its wordsmithing just enough to be a bit dreary on occasion. While tightening may have improved its pacing, the loss incurred to other aspects would be felt.

So it may not be for you, but it will certainly be most enjoyable for some. I, for one, am quite glad I stuck around for the full 1,000 pages. ( )

Enchanting! The colored fairy books meet Jane Austen. Part fantasy, part historic novel, always charming and entertaining. ( )

Her deftly assumed faux-19th century point of view will beguile cynical adult readers into losing themselves in this entertaining and sophisticated fantasy.
 
Many charmed readers will feel, as I do, that Susanna Clarke has wasted neither her energies nor our many reading hours.
 
Susanna Clarke, who resides in Cambridge, England, has spent the past decade writing the 700-plus pages of this remarkable book. She's a great admirer of Charles Dickens and has produced a work every bit as enjoyable as The Pickwick Papers, with more than a touch of the early Anne Rice thrown in for good measure.
 
"Move over, little Harry. It’s time for some real magic."
 
A chimera of a novel that combines the dark mythology of fantasy with the delicious social comedy of Jane Austen into a masterpiece of the genre that rivals Tolkien.

He hardly ever spoke of magic, and when he did it was like a history lesson and no one could bear to listen to him.

Some years ago there was in the city of York a society of magicians.
Citater
Oplysninger fra den engelske Almen Viden Redigér teksten, så den bliver dansk.
At sixteen she spoke -- not only French, Italian & German -- which are part of any lady's commonplace accomplishments -- but all the languages of the civilized (and uncivilized) world. She spoke the language of the Scottish Highlands (which is like singing). She spoke Basque, which is a language which rarely makes any impression upon the brains of any other race, so that a man may hear it as often and as long as he likes, but never afterwards be able to recall a single syllable of it. She even learnt the language of a strange country which, Signor Tosetti had been told, some people believed still existed, although no one in the world could say where it was. (The name of the country was Wales.)
It is also true that that his hair had a reddish tinge and, as everybody knows, no one with red hair can ever truly be said to be handsome.
"Soldiers, I am sorry to say, steal everything." He thought for a moment and then added, "Or at least ours do."
"Can a magician kill a man by magic?" Lord Wellington asked Strange. Strange frowned. He seemed to dislike the question. "I suppose a magician might," he admitted "but a gentleman never could."
It may be laid down as a general rule that if a man begins to sing, no one will take any notice of his song except his fellow human beings. This is true even if his song is surpassingly beautiful. Other men may be in raptures at his skill, but the rest of creation is, by and large, unmoved. Perhaps a cat or a dog may look at him; his horse, if it is an exceptionally intelligent beast, may pause in cropping the grass, but that is the extent of it. But when the fairy sang, the whole world listened to him. Stephen felt clouds pause in their passing; he felt sleeping hills shift and murmur; he felt cold mists dance. He understood for the first time that the world is not dumb at all, but merely waiting for someone to speak to it in a language it understands. In the fairy's song the earth recognized the names by which it called itself.
