Two Books

A much undesirable period of some sickness last week, helped me knock off two from my reading list- one of which was pending for over 6 months.
Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman is a delight to read, filled with an intelligent plot, rich characters and tremendous intelligence that comes from the collaboration of two successful authors. It tells the amazing story of an impending apocalypse*. Must read if you are Pterry or a Gaimanophile. Must read also if you love fantasy infused with wicked humour

Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell is yet another fantastic tale of magic and magicians. It is difficult to believe that this is the author's first work. Must read again if you are a fantasy/magic buff.

* The indefinite article as opposed to the definite one here in line with the popular concept of creations/destruction cycle of the universe as per atleast one myth!

thanks for the Book Recommendations. I'm an avid fantasy fiction fan too. Specially when it comes to Comic Fanatasy. Have added both of these to my list. Do let us know if you have more FF recommendations.

By the way, have you read any of Tom Holt's works? If not, have a go at Open Seaseme or Saints and Sinners to begin with.
