GABBLER RECOMMENDS: Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell – BBC

My only qualms with the show? That there’s no brilliant way to incorporate the novel’s splendid footnotes and all the stylistic atmosphere therein. Waiting on episode 4! 

[“BLA and GB Gabbler” (really just a pen name – singular) are the Editor and Narrator behind THE AUTOMATION, vol. 1 of the Circo del Herrero series. They are on facebook, twitter, tumblr, goodreads, and Vulcan’s shit list.]

      Have you read the novel?

        No. My son is a big fan of the novel and the show. I’m too freaked out by the show to read it.

    I know, right? The footnotes make up half the book’s genius.

  3. The footnotes almost comprised a second book! I’m so upset I don’t have BBCA right now!

    I didn’t know this was a show. I have the book but didn’t through all of it. I’ll have to devote a whole summer to reading it if I want to get through it all.
