I really enjoyed this installment in the Thursday Next series It moved uickly than The Well of Lost Plots and there was some suspense Overall it s the characters and the uirkiness that keep me invested in this series I love Fforde s writing style his humor and the literary allusions I love that the series is postmodern surrealist science fiction There s time travel strange technology and visits to the underworld Mythological characters feature as much as the characters of the literary canon I like Fforde best when he mixes the Outland with the Book World The clash of cultures is especially interesting to me and it s uniue to have the characters travel back and forth whereas Thursday living fully in the Book World had less variety and felt static Overall I liked this book a lot and think it continues Thursday s story well I was very relieved that view spoilerLanden is finally back His being eradicated for so long was starting to get frustrating and repetitive hide spoiler
