And I finally found time to read it.
I’m at the part where Goliath Corp has taken over Spec Ops and hauled the fictional Thursday in on spurious charges of crimes against humanity, while she was in the middle being arrested along with an important cheese smuggler, not realizing she isn’t the real Thursday & there will be no actual blog post today.
It’s killing me being away from the narrative just to type this up.
If you have never read any of Jasper Fforde’s Thursday Next books you have no clue what the hell I am babbling about.
If you have read them but not this one yet you are thinking “Goliath took over SpecOps? How in the hell did that happen?”
And I’m right there with you, so I’m getting back to the book to find out, though I suspect there will be no adequate backstory to this plot twist. Book World backstories are abundant but real world backstory is seriously lacking this time around.
Not a criticism. Just an observation.
If you haven’t read Fforde & you like reading & have a passing familiarity with English Literature I highly encourage you to pick up The Eyre Affair, the first in the series.
Or The Big Over Easy, which is equally wonderful & full of nursery rhyme characters.
Back tomorrow with real world stuff.
