Simply magical (I'm not sorry)
Ladies of Grace Adieu and Other Stories - Susanna Clarke,Charles Vess

Firstly, The Ladies of Grace Adieu and Other Short Stories was written while Susanna Clarke was still working on Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell which I just found out took her 10 years to complete...so I guess I won't hold my breath on her next novel. Secondly, this was a great short story compilation, ya'll. This was especially great if you are thinking of reading Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell but you're not sure if you want to commit yourself to such an epic length book. This will definitely give you a taste of her narrative style as well as the world that she has created (Faerie! Also other places!). Honestly, I can't say enough good things about this author. I am super excited to see what else she comes up with but as I said a few sentences ago she does like to take her time (and she's also been ill so don't be too hard on her). Go check this book out!

The Ladies of Grace Adieu
The Ladies of Grace Adieu and Other Stories - Susanna Clarke,Charles Vess

I really enjoyed reading Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norell as it was once of the books that surprised me in 2012. So, it was clear I wanted to read this book as well. I had actually been hoping on a full length sequel that could bring back the fantastic atmosphere from the book, but as that is not possible for now, I'm at least very happy with this set of lovely short stories, some of which are set in the same time as JS&MrN, but all are written is that same style that is so wonderful and impressive.

The Ladies of Grace Adieu and other stories - Susanna Clarke Clarke didn't disappoint me in these short stories. Her writing style, surprisingly, varied in each story which make me admired how adept in writing she is. Each story, not only aid more depth in the world of Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, very fascinating to read, some very funny! However, there is a story that, for me, quite hard to grasp; the second one which write with spelling of local tongue or something is quite inaccessible for me who is not native speaker.
