One of our Thursdays is Missing (Thursday Next) by Jasper Fforde
I love the Thursday Next novels but I couldn't get through this one. My kindle tells me I'm 63% through and I have no motivation to get to the end.

I realise that by book 6, Mr Fforde might be trying to keep the franchise fresh, but for me it just doesn't work. And I couldn't really tell you why.

It looks like it will eat batteries what with the noise, the… Read more
