I read this last month (forgot that it was our July book or I would have waited!) and really liked it, though not as much as the Thursday Next books. Will save details for the spoiler thread once more people finish.

I read this when it just came out. I thought it was entertaining, but I liked the Thursday Next books better.

Patricia Just started it; looking forward to the discussion.

Marty (martyjm) | 310 comments I will start it soon.

Barb (barbtrek) | 40 comments I read it and really liked it, though it did take a while for me to get into it.

message 9: by Marty (new)

Marty (martyjm) | 310 comments I've started it. Enjoying this strange world.

message 10: by Jane (new)

Jane (hippygoth66) | 101 comments I feel really bad, I recommended this book as my husband has been on at me to read it. And I did start it, but am still less than a 100 pages in.
Reasons, slow start, have hardback copy so can't take it to work to read a lunch, still doing my exams just over a week to go.
Hopefully I will pick it back up once the last exam is out of the way.

message 11: by Kara (new)

Kara (sterlink) | 73 comments Read the first 2 pages, and based on the style of the prose alone, I can easily understand why Pratchett and Adams are referenced on the back cover.

Gonna steer away from this one right now... doesn't fit my current mood and am overbooked. Looks really interesting though. Have a great read!

message 12: by Maggie (new)

Maggie K | 298 comments I finally got started on this one, and so far I am enjoying it! More humor to it than I expected...

message 13: by JoLene (new)

JoLene (trvl2mtns) I started this a couple of days ago. It is a bit of a slow read for me, but I am also finding it very humorous.

Carly Svamvour (faganlady) | 33 comments I'm listening to it - a bit juvenile, but it is holding my attention ... which tells a lot about me ... hee hee!

I'm more than halfway through and expect to see it done by Thursday night max.

message 15: by Carly (new)

Carly Svamvour (faganlady) | 33 comments I'm finished - and before my Thursday night max of midnight.

In all, I liked this book - a lot of humour.
