: : : Has anyone read Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norell by Susanna Clarke? If so, what did you think about it?

: : I did! It had some promising moments at times, but was too dull and pretentious beyond belief, imo. She tried soooo hard to make it sound like a bad Jane Austen or Georgette Heyer imitation...and succeeded in the bad, heh. Supposedly, she is writing a sequel. i won't be getting it if/when she does.

: : Alle

: Anyone read The Lies of Locke Lamora yet? They are literally wetting themselves about it over at sffworld.


*l* Well, I think I am waiting until it comes out in ppb...it's doesn't sound like something I would want to pay hard cover price for. Plus, when I checked on Amazon, 33% of people who bought this also bought a Patrica Bray novel, and I don't think much of her.

I think YOU should get it and let US know if it's really good. *nods*
