So, I didn't know what to think when I picked up this old copy of "The Big Over Easy" at a used book store. But - I thought I'd give the fairy tale twist a try. I found that Fforde does an amazing job at taking a child's fairy tale and making it readable for the adult. I have read a few of Fforde's books now and have enjoyed every one of them. It's an easy read, but let's you go to a place where no one questions that fairy tale creatures exist and where their reputations are a lot sketchier than you might have imagined as a five year old. With whit and charm Fforde makes his characters come alive. It's a great respite from the work day or any other heavy reading and combines the spark of the imagination with the curiosity of a murder mystery.
