I actually like Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. It's a good book, but it's just so long. Three Musketeers in French class was fun. I sorta remember reading it aloud with each of us doing a different part? Anyways, speaking of French class, I found the other day, while sorting through our far too big video collection, a tape labeled "Celia and Lisette's Final Project."
