The Barney for Best Book That Shows How Much Footnotes Suck on an Old Kindle goes too…
‘Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell’ by Sussanna Clarke!!
Really not much I can say, it is one the the best books I have ever read. But if you pick it up on the Kindle, beware!! This book is loaded with footnotes, and going back and forth using an arrow pad sucks, sucks, sucks.
If you have access to Goodreads, my very rough review from a year ago can be found here.
