SciFi Wire is reporting that a movie adaptation of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell is in the works. Not surprising. The wildly popular book has made just about every 2004 favorite list. So, has anyone read this? What were your impressions? (And, no, I don’t care if your don’t do impressions. :))
Sidenote and useless trivia from last month’s Locus magazine: The title on the cover of the book is Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell (no period after the Mr), yet everyone keeps referring to the book as Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell (with the period). Does anyone know the significance of the missing period? An editing error perhaps? Or does something in the book explain it?
