Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell Kindle Edition 99p.
The year is 1806. centuries have passed since practical magicians faded into the nation's past. But scholars of this glorious history discover that one remains: the reclusive Mr Norrell, whose displays of magic send a thrill through the country. Proceeding to London, he raises a beautiful woman from the dead and summons an army of ghostly ships to terrify the French. Yet the cautious, fussy Norrell is challenged by the emergence of another magician: the brilliant novice Jonathan Strange. Young, handsome and daring, Strange is the very antithesis of Norrell. So begins a dangerous battle between these two great men which overwhelms that between England and France. And their own obsessions and secret dabblings with the dark arts are going to cause more trouble than they can imagine.
One of the best books I have read and re-read. The TV version was okay.

Shantaram - by Gregory David Roberts - 900 pages, 4.6/5 (10,052 ratings)
> high adventure, great storytelling, moral purpose - true story of the Bombay underworld.
'A literary masterpiece . . . at once erudite and intimate, reflective and funny . . . it has the grit and pace of a thriller'
'a high-kicking, eye-gouging adventure, a love saga and a savage yet tenderly lyrical fugitive vision.'
As disappointing as the sequel might be, it's only 99p now - first time ever cheap, and an epic 800 pages.
