by Jasper Fforde - Oh Jasper Fforde, you amazing, totally bonkers, genius! Not many can mix reality with a world full of wizards and Quarkbeasts, flying carpets and old VW. He catch you on the very first page, throw you into the life of Jennifer Strange, the young foundling, acting manager and factotum at Kazam Mystical Arts Managment. Totally indespensable at the age of 15, she get some help from young Tiger and go off to do what Destiny has for her. It is a big task put on her shoulders, but this is a clever girl. She manage. What the task is? You`ll know if you read the book.
As usual Jasper Fforde give us another addicting book. He write is such a way that you cannot stop reading. No matter if you are 10 or 78 years old. It`s interesting, spicy and surprising. Mr Fforde is probably one of the funniest authors I know , and every page in this stuffed book is dusted with that dry, hilarious British humor.
No I can`t tell you what will happen. Not more then there is this last dragon, and someone got to get rid of him, even if he talks and behave like some old, posh gentleman. Go on, just read it.
The writing is filled with funny twists of language and unexpected ways of saying something, and I found myself chuckling even through the uneventful parts of the book. This playful use of language is one of the things I love best about Fforde, and it's in full force here.
While it's not the most surprising of his works and won't keep you thinking about it for months on end like with Thursday and Shades of Grey, it's still a fun and engaging read and is well worth taking the trouble to acquire. The second book is out now as well.
