Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke
If you want more intricate, literary fantasy, try these next…
Gormenghast by Mervyn Peake for an elaborate and bizarre gothic epic
The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly for a dark fairy tale
The Magicians by Lev Grossman for a melancholy urban fantasy
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor for superb YA world building
Since I’m reading this right now I just had to RB this list. Already know I love TWO of these recs, now I must go and try the others.
