Lost in a Good Book

lost in a good book

This is the second book in Jasper Fforde’s series about Thursday Next and I’m still undecided as to what I think about it. There are times when I find his writing slick and funny and I enjoy the varied literary and cultural references that pepper the book. And yet there are other moments when I find his writing rather clumsy and unfunny and, to be honest, a little infantile. It took me a while to get into this and when I did, I enjoyed it, but it didn’t enthuse me. You probably have to be prepared to completely abandon yourself to the silliness of Fforde’s books to really enjoy them, but for me the writing just isn’t strong enough to persuade me to do that.

  1. I certainly fully committed to the silliness! A great bit of escapist fun.
