I didn't post about The Eyre Affair a couple of months ago when I listened to it, because I just didn't know what to say about it. I was hoping that a second book would help. I'm not sure it did. Let's just start with the Publisher's Summary (because there's just no way I could do justice to this ...

‘Bad boy!’ she added in a scolding tone. The Tasmanian tiger looked crestfallen, sat on its blanket by the Aga and stared down at its paws. ‘Rescue Thylacine,’ explained my mother. ‘Used to be a lab animal. He smoked forty a day until his escape. It’s costing me a fortune in nicotine patches. Isn’t ...

And that's us. Read this long ago. Still remember how Thursday Next going in and out of the book world looking for clue and talking to fictional characters. How the writer set up the scene is good with lot of humors. Plot device is actually written out. And fictional characters are free to do w...

This is an incredibly complicated universe ...

I have to admit, I may be getting a soft spot for this series after two volumes. The first book was a lot of interesting ideas but lacked in characters that really spoke to me. This one maintains the interesting ideas but I actually felt like I understood Thursday a lot better, found myself with a ...

More fun adventures in life and literature for Ms. Next, and plenty of glimpses of "Homo sapien at his least sapient." These books are great if for the wordplay alone. Looking forward to more adventures with Thursday.

Lost the Plot After One Good Book, more like. I picked this up because it's No.2 in a series I'd read books 1, 3 and 4 of and it was mildly irritating not to know the full details of what went on in the gap. The Eyre Affair has a justifiable reputation as a fun, imaginative fantasy set in an altern...
