Finished Reading VIII

Lost in a Good Book - Jasper Fforde

Since Terry Pratchett stopped writing very good comedies and started writing very good novels instead there's been a gap in the market for a humourous British writer (and please, no-one mention third division tat like Robert Rankin).

Jasper Fforde could have filled that signifcant space, but his books - while they do make you smile - have yet to make me laugh out loud. Fforde's jokes and whimsies are clever rather than genuinely funny, and 'Lost in a Good Book' has, if anything, more such clever ideas than his debut novel.

Which means it's excellent and highly to be recommended, even if it's not packed with belly-laughs..
