Kate Says: "Reading Is Fun!"

Like most of you I'm an avid reader. I'm hoping to re-connect with old friends, make new friends, and of course spread the love of reading and writing around to everyone!

One of Our Thursdays Is Missing: A Novel

One of Our Thursdays Is Missing: A Thursday Next Novel - Jasper Fforde As you can tell I am not reading this series in order. I read the first book, to see what it was like and enjoyed it because of the literary references. Then when my coworker, Doug B. (he's the one who introduced me to this series), told me I should read this one next, and that I could borrow it from him, I didn't hesitate.

To be perfectly honest, it took me a while to figure out what the heck was going on, but once I understood, I enjoyed the book, as it was very meta and a bit bizarre, two things I really enjoy on their own. I also enjoyed the details of Book World, even though at times it almost seemed too detailed.

However, the one thing I didn't like was the long list of characters. It felt cumbersome to keep them all straight in my head as they interacted with each other.

All in all, a decent fast paced read that entertained me while I traveled, as the wordplays and use of language is really well done throughout both books that I have read thus far.
