I'm currently reading Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, by Susanna Clarke. Really good read so far. Witty, British, and very different from my usual reads.
However, I can't get over the idea of David Tennant as Jonathan Strange, if there's ever a movie rendition of the book. If that ever happened, I wouldn't miss it. He might have to tone down his natural wackiness a bit, but I think he'd be marvelous for the part.
Tennant was my favorite of the new Doctor Whos (although Eccleston was also fun), and excellent in Hamlet with Patrick Stewart. Maybe I just want him to be in the JS&MN movie because I've turned into a fan. :)
