Jonathan Strange and Tor.com

October 8, 2014

strangeKate Nepveu is starting a reread of Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell over on Tor.com. I have never read Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, although I quite like typing it.
I cannot explain my unusual laxness in allowing this book to slip past my view. I love Regency fantasy. It is Regency fantasy. And yet…
And yet I just never got around to picking it up. Perhaps the cover? It doesn’t exactly fill one with awe.
Perhaps I just never had a good reason. Whatever the case, I have been remiss and I intend to correct that now.
So, I shall start the reread along with Ms. Nepveu.
The schedule is as follows:

Volume I

1. October 10, 2014: chapters 1 to 4
2. October 17, 2014: chapters 5 to 10
3. October 24, 2014: chapters 11 to 16
4. October 31, 2014: chapters 17 to 22

Volume II

5. November 7, 2014: chapters 23 to 26
6. November 14, 2014: chapters 27 to 30
7. November 21, 2014: chapters 31 to 34
(Break for U.S. Thanksgiving)
8. December 5, 2014: chapters 35 to 39
9. December 12, 2014: chapters 40 to 44

Volume III

10. December 19, 2014: chapters 45 to 49
(Break for The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies, Christmas, New Year’s)
11. January 9, 2015: chapters 50 to 54
12. January 16, 2015: chapters 55 to 59
13. January 23, 2015: chapters 60 to 64
14. January 30, 2015: chapters 65 to 69

I will be posting my own thoughts on the chapters on the same schedule as the Tor.com discussion. Are any of you planning to read along? If you’ve already read the book I’d love to hear your opinions about it.
