Ceci n'est pas une personne.

(no subject)

So you want a Harry Potter'esque story, but for adults, set in the Napoleonic Wars?

I'm only a sixth of the way into it, but so far I'm loving "Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell" by Susanna Clarke. The writing style is very similar to Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere or American Gods, but set in the past.

Go get it now.
