Not my favorite Fforde novel -- I might have enjoyed it better if I'd read the first 5 Thursday Next books more recently. As it is, I'd forgotten a lot, and "One of Our Thursdays Is Missing" largely depends on the characters (and their traits) from previous novels.

I kind of felt like how I feel when I read a Discworld novel: as if I should KNOW the characters already, but I don't, so some of what happens doesn't quite make sense.

That said, it was a fairly good story, if a bit slow sometimes, and there could have been a little more wordplay.
