At first glance you might think, What the heck are they about!! Then as you get into the Thursday Next series you just have to read them all. You will be glad you did. They are worth it. The stories are great; the villians are great; our heroine is great; the other characters are great and the subtle humor is absolute super. I envy you, if you're just starting! All Fforde's books are worth the read!!

It's hard to describe the books in this series: literary science fiction comes closest. They are amusing, complex, and clever. They also make demands on a reader's education: people unfamiliar with the most famous of the classic books will miss at least half the jokes. (My favorite is the stalker whose name is Millon De Floss.)

Its funny book but unless you have read all the classics then some of the jokes will just go over your head. Enjoyable book altogether.

Jasper Fforde's"Thursday Next, First Among Sequels" is the 5th "Thursday Next" novel I have read in the past 5 or 6 years. His first was "The Eyre Affair" and it captivated me with its' wacky sci-fi sensibility, its' obvious love of great literature, and its wonderful satiric sense of humor. In subsequent novels Fforde has kept the goofy literary plots spinning while his heroine, Thursday Next, becomes ever more adventurous but still lovable. A lot of what happens in "Thursday Next, First Among Sequels" might not be understandable if you haven't read the earlier books, but to us old hands at Jasper Fforde's shenanigans, this newest entry calls out "welcome home!'.

Very readable, getting into the mysterious workings of what makes books come alive when you read them. Interesting commentary on the nature of "now" but not in a preachy way. Very readable, highly entertaining, wonderful character development, and literary allusions that make you want to re-read the classics. Well done!
