Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell - Susanna Clarke

I was expecting something like The Prestige which I loved. Instead I got to trudge through 800+ pages and footnotes of boredom. I generally wouldn't hate this book (and I did go back and forth on the rating) but I truly did not enjoy reading it at all and had to force myself. Maybe if it was shorter I would have given it two stars.This is the type of book I think a movie would be better.
