I look at the title for this blog post and I just think it looks for innuendo.  It may just be me, but let’s move on.   Last night I finished what was a three month journey which was reading Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke.  It didn’t take me long because I am a slow reader, if I power read it I could have done it in two or three days.   This was my bath book.   When I take a bath I prefer to read while I’m in there, otherwise I’m staring at the walls.

The book was a good read.  If you are an adult and you like the Harry Potter book I woudl recommend you pick this up.  The tone or content isn’t necessarily adult, but it does have a higher vocabulary then Rowling uses in her books.   I would say this is a mixture of Harry Potter and Stephenson’s Baroque Cycle.   If that intrigues you, but it.  It’s only 7.99 at Amazon now.
