The Thursday Next series and the rest of Fforde's quirky novels are, and always will be, high on my list of favorite books. Every one of them is insanely clever, creative, funny, and loaded with all kinds of literary references from Charles Dickens, the Brontes, Jane Austen, to Humpty Dumpty.
This latest installment is every bit as amazing as the previous ones. My only complaint is that the pace fell slightly slow in just a few places. There are a lot of seemingly loose ends in the story, but no doubt the author will use them to develop even more surprising plots in the future books.

I love the Thursday Next series. If you're a book nerd who loves the classics and wordplay and alternate universes and hardboiled detective stories and straight up mysteries and a bit of scifi and time travel, this is for you. Jasper Fforde is endlessly clever and inventive. All these books stand alone just fine by themselves, but if you're patient enough to work your way through them all you'll discover Fforde has done something more significant than just write a bunch of random sequels.
