I really enjoyed this book. The world was the same as the Thursday next novels however they are set in a different city and closer to modern day. The characters were entertaining and imaginative. I really enjoy this world, it would be very easy to make this overly cheesy and stupid but Fforde makes it smart and still kind of cheesy but just the right amount.
Also every time I read the title a Jack Spratt Investigation the little rhyme Jack Spratt could eat no fat always ran through my head. Which has nothing to do with the book but I thought I’d share.
