Lost in a Good Book
I am now going to read "Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell" by Susanna Clarke. I have heard nothing but good things about this book. It is also up for a Whitbread nomination for best new novel. It is a fair size but I'm looking forward to getting into it.
I have a question for anyone who may be reading this. If there was one book that you could spend some time in what would it be? You wouldn't really be part of the storyline but you could certainly interact with the characters. That's a hard one for me. I'm not really sure what I would chose. At the moment I am tempted to say the Dark Tower series (which is kind of a cheat since it is seven books) but it would probably scare the hell out of me. I'm also tempted to go for a classic there are a lot of characters I would like to have a one on one with. If I wanted something fun though I think I would go for one of the Pern stories.
