First Among Sequels (Thursday Next, Book 5) First Among Sequels by Jasper Fforde

My review

rating: 2 of 5 stars
After devouring the first four, and impatiently ranting at Amazon for not delivering them quickly enough, I found book 5 of the series to be a miserable disappointment. Yes, I know it’s hard to be hilariously funny all the time, but what about patching up some of the gaping plot holes, big enough for the Hesperus to fall into.

At frequent intervals during the book I found myself wondering ‘Was this written by a different person?’ and then, ‘If so, have they even read the other four books???’. A cute twist towards the end did a little to redeem it for me, but I had to make myself finish chapters, and as far as I’m concerned the series ended with book four.

Two stars.
