Has anyone posted about this gorgeous book yet? Just loved it. I read a library copy and can't wait for the paperback to reread it. I might just have to order it from the library again. Something about it reminds me of Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, although thankfully it is a lot shorter.

On second thoughts maybe I need to buy the hardback so I have a first edition grin

I was looking at this the other day. It's v pretty. Think I'll give it a go - have read some of his non-fiction.

Do Remus. His writing is so accessible and beautiful. He spent many years writing this apparently. I've only read his book "The child that books built" before. What else should I read?

I read his one about the Antarctic too.

I'll look out for that one then. Thanks Remus

The paperback of Golden Hill is out - I didn't realise - it was prominently displayed in Waterstones today - as their fiction book of the month.

I'll give it a go. smile
