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.
