Oh, my.

I finished Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell not ten minutes ago. I already miss spending time in the universe. So many questions yet to be answered (excellent fuel for a Sequel!). I'm not sure who I'm more in love with--Mr. Strange or the elusive Raven King.

The hype was very nearly exactly right. This book is brilliant, not just for a first novel, but for any story.

Just. Just go read it.

ETA: Eeeeeeeee!

I only recently heard about this on RBC, and now I find another friend is raving over it. I do very little reading these days, but what I do has to be intelligent and somewhat escapist fare. Sounds like this fits the bill? I also need something I can become emotionally attached to. So many books are leaving me cold these days (my fault, not theirs, probably).

Oh, you should love this. The story starts off slowly, but once Jonathan Strange appears, it takes off. It's very intelligent, and very escapist. Go forth and read, whee!
