Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke
As of right now I am officially giving up on Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell. My bookmark has been ensconced between pages 280 and 281 (of 1006 total) for at least a month and I have felt no desire to pick it up again.
I really want to like this novel, but I just can't get into it. Honestly, it was like pulling teeth to even get as far as I did. Whenever I've tried to read it I've felt like it would never end. I feel guilty given all the awards and rave reviews that Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, but I have to admit that the book just isn't right for me right now and let it find a new reader who'll be able to appreciate it. I plan to wild release it this afternoon.
