First Among Sequels


This is the fifth book in the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde. I was a bit apprehensive about reading it, mainly because my memory for book plots and characters is so bad, and this series has some seriously weird things going on. So much so that I didn’t know if this book would be as much fun as the others were.

Luckily I was mistaken, the book was another great read by Fforde. It is about fifteen years after the last book. Thursday leads a respectable life now that SpecOPs is closed down. Or is she? The adventure that follows is absurdly great (England is suffering from a stupidity excess, cheese is still being smuggled, etc.).

Without giving too much away, I loved the new theories, the new characters, the famous characters that come by, and the ending that left room for more Thursday Next books. Anybody who loved the previous books will love this one. Four out of five stars.
