Jonathan Strange & Mr NorrellHDCaution

Description

The year is 1806. Centuries have passed since magicians faded into the nation’s past. But scholars of this glorious history discover that one remains: the reclusive Mr. Norrell, whose displays of magic send a thrill through the country. In London, he raises a beautiful woman from the dead and summons an army of ghostly ships to terrify the French. 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. So begins a dangerous battle between the two. Their obsessions and secret dabblings with the dark arts will cause more trouble than they can imagine.

Customer Reviews

Now the book makes sense!

I read the book years ago when it first came out so was very pleased to find that the BBC had made this wonderful adaptation. The tv series has everything and is at turns thrilling and very sad. Performances are great; Marc Warren and Bertie Carvell especially. I reread the book after watching this and it really helped me to appreciate the book even more. This is the kind of drama that only the BBC can make - enjoy it while you can, before the money men dumb it down even more.

It’s my favourite book of all time. And they did the best possible adaptation of it.

I love the book. I think the book is simply, wonderfully superb. And for the seven hours worth that this series lasts, the adaptors have nailed it. It is it at turns funny, charming, frightening, extraordinary, chilling and downright uncanny and weird in the stranger sections.

There is never going to be another series like it.

And if you like the series, for Pete’s sake read the book. It has these footnotes that are just as sublime as the main story and explain more into matters of the Raven King and the Aureate magicians of the period.
