I’m still reading Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, it’s really very good and I’m really enjoying it. I realized yesterday that I have absolutely no idea where the story is going, which is unusual, a little unsettling, and rather pleasing.
I took a one day break in my reading to read Going Postal by Terry Pratchett. What a great book. The characters are really well formed and unique, and I really liked that the main character wasn’t a good guy. Pratchett manages to allow him to grow as a character while keeping a consistency that makes his actions completely believable. The story is clever, the jokes and references are subtle yet hilarious, I actually laughed out loud a number of times.
I’m halfway through Strange and Norrell, I’ll report back when I’m done.
