Book Review: "One of Our Thursdays is Missing"

It's difficult to believe that it's been nearly four years since Jasper Fforde's last Thursday Next book, but the sixth installment in the series, One of Our Thursdays is Missing has arrived at last (from Hodder & Stoughton in the UK and Viking in the US).

As always, this volume is somewhat hard to summarize, especially for readers who might be unfamiliar with the plot and characters (if talking dodos, footnoterphones, cross-genre wars and Jurisfiction don't ring any bells, please see The Eyre Affair). I won't give you the plot, because you need to read it yourself. But I will note that the book is as full of biblio-punnery, allusions, name-dropping and imaginative ramblings as its predecessors, with the addition of much ebook angst added to the mix this time.

It's always a fun trip to dive into the BookWorld - just watch out for the eraserheads!
