Thursday Next in First Among Sequels

Jasper Fforde's return to the Thursday Next series is everything I hoped it would be. Funny, fast-paced, and most importantly, the start of a new plot line! In the first four books, starting with The Eyre Affair, Thursday was in her thirties and just beginning her adventures as a Literary Detective. Now, sixteen years later, Thursday's a fiftysomething, married with a teenaged son and two young daughters. Thankfully, she's still up to her old tricks in the BookWorld, hanging out with her friends, who just happen to be fictional characters. If you've read the first series, you'll find that this return trip is a satisfying treat which is open for yet another sequel! And if you haven't read the first series, I order you to go back and start reading it now.
