Murder by Death 5 years ago
I started this one last night but didn't get very far - I'm only here right now to write a quick review and then I'm diving back in. Now I have added incentive because you mentioned Holmes!

That's the only reason I keep reading at this point. I've been seriously underwhelmed by the first half of this book. I hope you fare better.

I'm midway through chapter 11 and I too am underwhelmed so far. What's Fforde doing? I know there's quite a few years between this one and the last one, but it feels like he meant this to be Thursday's swan song. And Pickwick!! What has he reduced Pickwick to?

(I have more but didn't want to go spoilery.)

And when did Thursday become so smug and condescending?

I stopped at the first mention of Holmes last night as it was past midnight and I literally fell asleep... I'll pick it back up this afternoon before I need to get ready for the annual Guy Fawkes Night fireworks.

I think I passed out while reading last night too and I still haven't gotten to the quote above. I have a lot of exclamations built up, but now I'm thinking about it and I'm wondering:

Is this all a part of the deviation from the standard timeline because of Friday??? I sure hope so because I don't know how Fforde comes up with 2 more books after this at the rate this one is going.

I finished it. I don't want to give away anything but I wish your theory was true and, also, I wish I could delete this particular update post....

Well, crap.

You can delete this post though - at least. :(

The last part of the book is decidedly better than the first. So,.....yay!

And, I won't delete the post....
