    A Little Boring, Still So Creative

    I absolutely LOVE this author's style. Anyone who can take nursery rhymes and create murder mysteries replete with humor and satire is a major plus in my book.
    In the second installment of the Nursery Crime series, the Goldilocks and the Three Bears are caught in a national conspiracy and the Gingerbread Man is blood thirsty as ever. Obviously this is not a nail-biter (unless you suffer from Mother Goose phobia) but it is certainly clever.
    My only issue is that there are times when the story was a little boring and nothing irks me more in a mystery than when characters are introduced at the last minute who end up playing a pivotal role in the plot. I feel like it's a cop out and it cheapens the story.
    In any case, I do recommend this book if anything for the humor and to marvel at the twisted lives of our much beloved nursery rhymes.

    Quick Read

    I picked up Jasper Fforde's 'The Fourth Bear' and was pleasantly surprised by how fluid the writing is and how easy it was to get through. A quick, entertaining read for anyone who wants to see an imagining story about what happens if fairy tale characters lived in the 'real' world.
