Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell

I've just started this (4 chapters in...) and LOVING it. It's so wonderfully written! It's the first book I've read in a long while that really makes me linger over the prose, that makes me truly conscious of style. Hmmm... is that a good thing?? Yes... I think so, like eating a truly wonderful dessert concoction where you are aware of all the rich and delighful ingredients and how subtly they mix together. I keep wanting to read bits out loud. I think it's going to take me about 6 months to read it, because it's long and because it's impossible to read such splendid prose quickly.
