bookshelves: fun-mysteries

Jasper Fforde is addictive IF his off beat literary humor is your cup of tea. I love his books for audio listening while commuting because the constant uproar of plots and subplots and the vast numbers of minor characters keeps me on my toes. However, if you are looking for a well-constructed mystery or a fantasy world that obeys its own internal constraints, these books will probably disappoint. If you read to much, esp. classics, you, like me, might find these books fun and affirming, a series of inside jokes. "Something Rotten" is a good addition to the Thursday Next series and I thoroughly enjoyed it. If you disliked the earlier installments, you will almost surely hate this one.
