It's 1808 and that Corsican upstart Napoleon is battering the English army and navy. Enter Mr. Norrell, a fusty but ambitious scholar from the Yorkshire countryside and the first practical magician in hundreds of years. What better way to demonstrate his revival of British magic than to change the course of the Napoleonic wars? Susanna Clarke's ingenious first novel, Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, has the cleverness and lightness of touch of the Harry Potter series, but is less a fairy tale of good versus evil than a fantastic comedy of manners, complete with elaborate false footnotes, occasional period spellings, and a dense, lively mythology teeming beneath the narrative. Mr. Norrell moves to London to establish his influence in government circles, devising such powerful illusions as an 11-day blockade of French ports by English ships fabricated from rainwater. But however skillful his magic, his vanity provides an Achilles heel, and the differing ambitions of his more glamorous apprentice, Jonathan Strange, threaten to topple all that Mr. Norrell has achieved. A sparkling debut from Susanna Clarke--and it's not all fairy dust. --Regina Marler contemporary,fantasy,genre fiction,historical,humor,literary,literature and fiction,magic and wizards,science fiction and fantasy Fantasy, Bloomsbury Publishing PLC

[ED: Taschenbuch], [PU: Bloomsbury Publishing], Das Buch spielt im England des 19. Jahrhunderts während der Napoleonischen Kriege und handelt von der Rückkehr der Magie nach England. Magie gilt dort seit Jahrhunderten als ausgestorben, als sich Mr. Gilbert Norrell als praktizierender Zauberer zu erkennen gibt. Er hat sein Wissen aus einer Vielzahl an Büchern zusammengetragen und will nun der Regierung im Krieg gegen Frankreich zur Seite stehen. Zur gleichen Zeit trifft der Landadlige Jonathan Strange auf den wahnsinnig erscheinenden Straßenmagier Vinculus, der ihm prophezeit, ein großer Magier zu werden. Im Mittelpunkt des Buches steht die turbulente Beziehung der beiden titelgebenden Zauberer. Im Verlauf des Romans treffen sie auf historische Persönlichkeiten, etwa den britischen Militärführer Arthur Wellesley, den Dichter Lord Byron und König Georg III. Ein Merkmal des Buches sind seine zahlreichen Fußnoten, die über Hintergründe, Ereignisse, Bücher und Biographien im Zusammenhang mit der Magie berichten und die Alternativweltgeschichte im Detail erläutern., [SC: 4.80], leichte Gebrauchsspuren, gewerbliches Angebot, [GW: 980g]

Two magicians shall appear in England. The first shall fear me; the second shall long to behold me. The year is 1806, and centuries have passed since practical magic faded into England's past. But scholars of its glorious history discover that one magician remains: the reclusive Mr Norrell, whose talent sends a thrill through the country. Yet the cautious, fussy Norrell is challenged by the emergence of another magician: the brilliant novice Jonathan Strange. Young, handsome and daring, Strange is the very antithesis of Norrell. And so begins a dangerous and dazzling battle between these two great men that will lead them into wars, personal battles, and places they should not have dared to enter.
