The joy of Jasper Fforde

A few friends mentioned to me that if I liked Terry Pratchett, then I would like Jasper Fforde. So, I gave him a try (courtesy of Ottakers half price sale). In the space of about two weeks I read the four Thursday Next novels and I really don't know how I managed to pass them by before. They are excellent - truly imaginative, witty, well-written and utterly unputdownable :o) It's been a good while since I read something quite as good and it was great to connect with a character like Thursday Next (a woman trying to lead a normal life in an increasingly strange world).

Now, I may have to invest in his Nursery Crime series :o)
