Giving up

I usually try my hardest to finish all the books I start, but I had to cry Uncle! at Susanna Clarke’s Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. I’m sure fans of early English fantasy and stories about fairies will find this pastiche delightful. It doesn’t cut it for me.

Instead I started on Gene Wolfe’s The Wizard Knight. Much better so far.
