Le gasp! What's this, I'm doing more tags?! From our one and only Simon @simonreadsbooks I got #whitebooks tag, now I was going to use other books (coincidentally those on yesterdays pic), until I realized they weren't really that white, and picked another whiter set.

“—¿Puede un mago matar a un hombre por arte de magia? —, le preguntó Lord Wellington a Strange.
Éste frunció el entrecejo. Pareció que no le gustaba la pregunta.
—Supongo que un mago podría —admitió —; pero un caballero, jamás.”// Por fin llegué a la mitad, pero ya tengo ganas de terminarlo y volver a leerlo. 🤓 #jonathanstrangeandmrnorrell #susannaclarke #amustread

"Он войдёт в зеркало и не вернётся"... Наконец-то нашелся роман настолько необычный, что я просто не могу перестать о нем думать - это "Джонатан Стрендж и мистер Норрелл" Сюзанны Кларк.

В Англии XIX века вот уже триста лет нет магии, она как любовь - все о ней слышали, но никто не видел. Местные "волшебники" не умеют колдовать и способны только на бесконечную болтовню. И тут, буквально из ниоткуда, появляются двое практикующих волшебников и возвращают магию. Самое интересное начинается в тот момент, когда один из них прибегает к помощи темной северной магии и вызывает эльфа.

Эльфы в кельтской мифологии (а именно на неё опирается Сюзанна Кларк) - злые, хитрые, жестокие существа, обладающие сильнейшими магическими способностями, это вам не Леголас ☺️ Феи часто похищали людей. Иногда люди влюблялись в эльфов и уходили добровольно в их волшебные земли. И в одном, и в другом случае, это было большой бедой.

Человек попадал в Страну Фей Под Холм и, теоретически, мог когда-нибудь вернуться Из-За Моря. Вот только возврата к прежней жизни для него не было. Пока он веселился и не старел в потустороннем мире, на земле проходили века. И стоило ему только сделать шаг из стеклянной лодки на родную землю, он тут же превратился бы в прах.

Любая сделка с фэйри влекла за собой последствия. Отчаяние и мрак вместе с жутким колокольным звоном становились постоянными спутниками несчастной жертвы. Тёмный лес мог вырасти прямо на оживлённой лондонской улице, кошмарные видения поджидали за каждым поворотом, и все дороги так или иначе вели в "Утраченную надежду". Сюжет необычен, повествование ведётся очень неспешно. Эта книга точно не для всех, многим она может показаться скучной. Точно не мне 🦄 Процесс чтения напоминает Эко, Джейн Остен, Диккенса, Толкиена. Никакой связи с "Мастером и Маргаритой" и "Гарри Поттером" я не обнаружила.

Tagged by @pagesandletters for #titlepagewonders... Isn't this one just glorious? #theladiesofgraceadieu by #susannaclarke!
Also I vote that #bookandpizza should be more of a thing. So if you're tagged feel free to go for that tag as well 🍕📚🍕📚

Como fazer um universo inteiro caber dentro de uma bolsa? É só carregar nela Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. Susanna Clarke conseguiu construir um mundo novo e mágico como poucos autores são capazes de fazer. Embora a narrativa seja de altos e baixos, a lentidão do ritmo só faz reforçar o talento da engenharia literária da autora, que, sem pressa, soube criar um romance extremamente verossímil, ainda que seu tema principal seja a fantasia. A gente termina a leitura acreditando que, de fato, muito do nosso cotidiano está repleto de magia... #jonathanstrangeandmrnorrell #susannaclarke

Autorenentdeckung
Tag 20 #Autorenwahnsinn
Nicht neu, aber für totale Begeisterung sorgte dieses Buch. Übrigens auch sehr gelungen von der BBC als Miniserie verfilmt!!! Für den Herbst oder Flensburger Schietwetter, mit Kamin, Tee und Keks.
Legenden, Magier, Leidenschaften, Eitelkeiten im England des 19. Jahrhunderts.
Die deutsche Ausgabe habe ich auch ... ich war wirklich hin und weg!

Woke up super early today and instead of rolling back over, I decided to give into my whims and pulled this off the shelf. Highly recommended for anyone who loves Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, but also just highly recommended. Anyone who can weave fantasy and folklore over an Austen template is a genius in my book.

I'm suuuper picky about fiction, but this is the first fiction book in a long, long while that has me completey engrossed. This is exactly the type of genre, writing style, and storytelling that I've been waiting for. 800 pages of pure delight. I just wish I hadn't watched the Netflix series first (which is also excellent, but it matches the book almost scene for scene) #jonathanstrangeandmrnorrell #susannaclarke #summerreading

Great story, I enjoyed this one, all 32 and a half hours. I particularly enjoyed hearing lots of northern towns mentioned, including Doncaster! I think it might be the best narration I've come across so far (narrated by Simon Prebble), it's impressive that one person can voice so many different characters.

Happy Sunday! 📚 I've been on the hunt for this book for aaaaages but I finally found it the other week in a bookshop for...£1. That's right, I got this huge book for just a pound. I couldn't believe it. The question is, when will I get round to reading it? 🤔 have a good Sunday everyone! #book #jonathanstrangeandmrnorrell #susannaclarke #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookish #bookstagrammer #booknerd #booklover #bibliophile #bookaddict #bookaholic #booksarelife #bookworm #igreads #igbook #instareads #reader #readersofinstagram #humansofbookstagram #booknerdigans #thefinchbook #libraryofbookstagram #literature #booklove #bookishallure

Two magicians destined to bring magic back to England, a nameless slave destined to be a king and a gentleman with thistle-down hair. A 846 page novel by #SusannaClarke. Was a little tough to finish, but the magical imagery smoothen the journey. Now I'm curious to see how the tv series will bring the magic to life. Book 14 of 2017.

Один из моих любимых сериалов от #BBC - "Джонатан Стрендж и мистер Норрелл". Увидела книгу в #CharityShop за 49 пенсов и как же не купить!
Интересно, когда же я закончу читать книгу в #1006страниц?
Билли говорит, что к Рождеству, а босс -прочту за две недели !!!
Повангуем?
