Reader of all kinds of books but favorites genres include mystery, sic-fi, romance, thrillers, YA, fantasy, general fiction, memoirs. I'll try anything once.
Fforde's book The Eyre Affair is one of my favorite books. It sits proudly on my shelf. The whole concept is genius. People being able to change classics and the detectives who police them and fix what they can. Thursday Next is awesome.
So, when I saw that Fforde was starting a new series, I was all over it. I couldn't wait. I should have. Tried my best not to compare but...
Final verdict: A good book not a great book
