I’ve not had a working keyboard for my Mac for a fortnight (my own fault as I cleaned the old one with a wet wipe and messed up the underside of the keys). Now I have a cheap Windows keyboard which works well enough for me, I’m back on the inter web.

I finished “Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell” and thoroughly enjoyed it. I’ve also begun reading Ursula K LeGuin’s “The Dispossessed” which is one of the most intelligent novels I have ever read (IMHO) and sure to become my most favourite adult novel. It seems to me that in Shevek’s struggling to complete his theory of Simultaneity that UKLG is trying to finalise her ideas about “anarchy” and “archy.”

Good to be back!

  1. My wife doesn’t normally go for fantasy but, on the strength of the TV series, she borrowed my copy of Jonathan Strange and Mr Norell before I had a chance to read it. The good news is that she enjoyed it, so I have high hopes when I get round to it too.

      The book is far better than the TV series but books always are, aren’t they? My interest in the book came from watching them film a scene when visiting my son in York. The actual scene in the final broadcast lasted less than 30 seconds 🙂 .
