...is out in paperback. Now you have no excuse.
It's set in the early 19th century, in an England where magic was once common but has now disappeared. The title characters are responsible for its return, with increasingly dramatic results.
Fabulously good book, yes. It's the kind of book you read and can't wait to pick up a sketchbook to draw the characters and places in it. I'll want to do at least a couple illustrations and character portraits.
I'm a bit leery of the movie that's being planned, though I think Paul Bettany ought to play Strange. I'm not sure if they've cast it yet. We'll see about that.
This book is awesome, very few authors write that well nowadays... I think it's been out in paperback for a while since I've finished reading it, paperback version, a while ago and it was lent to me by a friend who had also read it. Hmm.
Johanna Clarke is up with the likes of Neal Stephenson and Umberto Ecco for me.
Oog, I hadn't even thought of the inevitable movie version. I think the only way it wouldn't suck is if Miyazaki did it.Originally Posted by Tully
