As someone who is always rambling on about what a huge fan I am of Jasper Fforde, I'm ashamed that it took me this long to read this book. It's OK though, it was worth the wait - a totally new, fresh story with classic Ffordian touches. Although I of course wanted to rush through the book, I took my time reading it, savoring it and really living in the universe of the book while I read. Like his other books, this one will be fun to reread and experience over and over. So highly recommended I can't even say how high.
I'm also behind on the Thursday Next series but I have my copy of the latest book standing by. I was tempted to reread the entire series first, but I'm not sure I'm patient enough to do that. I also have some NetGalley ebooks that I need to finish so they might have to be read first.
