    I have a confession I read this half hoping to hate it so I could make some space on the physical library shelves Alas, there is no way I could consign it to the narrative doldrums of the suburbs The reading references are too clever, the mystery too intriguing and the character building too well done Don t tell Friday, but I think I might have to toss Something Rotten instead.I haven t read Thursday Next in about ten years, so I wasn t sure how confused I d be I remember a lingering se I have a confession I read this half hoping to hate it so I could make some space on the physical library shelves Alas, there is no way I could consign it to the narrative doldrums of the suburbs The reading references are too clever, the mystery too intriguing and the character building too well done Don t tell Friday, bu...

    It s been a while since I started the Thursday Next series, and the other books in the series weren t that fresh in my mind, so I was a little overwhelmed by references to ideas and events introduced in previous books Plus, this work was a little slow to get established for me because I wasn t ready for our main character to be, perhaps, a different character than the other Thursday novels My final minor gripe with this book, which I nevertheless enjoyed, is what seems to be an overwhelming am It s been a while since I started the Thursday Next series, and the other books in the series weren t that fresh in my mind, so I was a little overwhelmed by references to ideas and events introduced in previous books Plus, this work was a little slow to get e...

    How often does a popular series switch out the protagonist in Book 6 I can t think of another example Jasper Fforde is a very clever, imaginative, witty and playful writer Books 1 3 in this Thursday Next series are brilliant Book 4 was very good, but not quite as sparkling Book 5, the last in the series before this, was the weakest by a considerable margin It felt flatter than what had gone before Has he lost it I worried Does this mark the beginning of the end I fretted.Then came How often does a popular series switch out the protagonist in Book 6 I can t think of another example Jasper Fforde is a very clever, imaginative, witty and playful writer Books 1 3 in this Thursday Next series are brilliant Book 4 was very good, but not quite as sparkling Book 5, the last in the series before this, was the weakest by a considerable margin It felt ...

    The thing I like best about this one, apart from the witty references to current concepts like FanFic and Harry Potter, is that we get to start at the beginning and watch our dear Thursday find herself all over again The written Thursday lives in the shadow of the real Thursday, a woman of worldwide fame in both real and book worlds She starts off rather timid and by the end has learned to trust herself Sprockett the clockwork Jeeves is a wond...

    I m torn as to how to review this latest Jasper Fforde entry I ve enjoyed all of the Thursday Next series, from The Eyre Affair onward, mostly because they ve made me laugh and they ve rewarded me for having a nimble mind and a knowledge of history and culture After the last book, which seemed to neatly tie everything up, I was wondering what Fforde had in mind to keep the story fresh Well, he has a nice twist, but it almost feels like a different series Instead of focusing on Thursday and t I m torn as to how to review this latest Jasper Fforde entry I ve enjoyed all of the Thursday Next series, from The Eyre Affair onward, mostly because they ve made me laugh and they ve rewarded me for having a nimble mind and a knowledge of history and culture After the last book, which seemed to neatly tie everything up, I was wondering what Fforde had in mind to keep the story fresh Well, he has a nice twist, but it almost feels like a different series Instead of focusing on Thursday and the gang, the protagonist of this book is the written Thursday In other words, this heroine is not our Thursday, but A Thursdaythe protagonist of the fictional Thursday Next series We got to seeof BookWorld, but less of Jurisfiction,of how BookWorld works, but less of the characters of a rich world of literature.The written Thursday isn t very int...
