Great book. I am handing it off to my 15 year old who has run out of books. We did not pay for internet at hotel, so he is reading like crazy. I think he will like it.
I loved all the literary references, and the vampires, time travel and evil genius. Seriously, this book is a wild literary ride! I will read more from this series.

This took me a long time to read - I had to renew my library rental 3x. I‘m not entirely sure why, but perhaps because I didn‘t find Hades to be an intriguing villain. After the first encounter, he pretty much fell flat to me. Thursday, however, I like. So I‘ll read the next one. #ebook #kindle #libraries #bookrecs

Mehso-so

I really wanted to like this more than I did. A comic/fantasy novel riffing on classic literature? Sign me up. And it wasn't bad, fairly amusing in places and certainly inventive but it almost suffered from a surfeit of ideas and a lack of clarity about the rules of the fantasy world he has created. Slightly underwhelmed.

Daisey I completely understand. I enjoyed this one, but I reached a point where I just decided to give up all reasoning to make it work and go with whatever craziness it threw at me. 5mo
Minervasbutler @Daisey yes I did the same. Maybe I was a bit harsh. Liked it but didn't love it. 3 stars on Goodreads. 5mo
emz711 Whattt! Loved it. When you read the sequels, it explains the world mechanics a lot more. Keep going! 5mo

It‘s Saturday, I just cleaned an office and I am rewarding myself with some book time before a girls day at the outlets with friends. I love my friends but sometimes dread all the social time so a quiet book morning is just what the doctor ordered. PS - I didn‘t know good bagels until I moved to NJ. It‘s true what they say.

I‘m finally getting to this one, and it is just delightful. The character names! The protagonist is Thursday Next, and her associates include Paige Turner, Victor Analogy, and Jack Schitt. I love the sense of humor in this novel, which is an alternate history set in the 1980s, with time travel and other anomalies.

Thanks, Suzanne, @BennettBookworm , for giving me this book! I‘m loving it!

Love Jasper Fjorde's #UniqueCharacterNames in this #series. MC Thursday Next is a SpecOps agent for LiteraTec. Her boss is Victor Analogy, her partner is Bowden Cable. Her Uncle Mycroft, invented the Prose Portal, which allows real-world individuals to enter books. There's her pet dodo, Pickwick, and my favorite, head of the Goliath Corporation's internal security service, Jack Schitt. 🤪

I wanted so badly to like this book. If it wasn‘t for a litsy read, I would have bailed. It was so hard to get through. It was easier after they got to the book traveling bits- but before that I had to force my way though. I didn‘t like the writing style, the dialogues felt rushed through, and overly dramatic, but then other parts felt like the characters weren‘t feeling enough. It felt rushed, it felt like the reactions were wrong (continued👇🏻)

Amabear And used at the wrong times, and it was really confusing how much was pulled from other books and eras. I feel like she tried to make a Harry Potter bad guy happen, and it didn‘t really work. It just wasn‘t believable. I really loved all the ideas, (edited) 8mo
Amabear Some very very cool inventions and police aspects, but felt like they were too forced, jumbled, and didn‘t flow well together. I feel like she tried to do too much in one book. I hate giving bad reviews but I really can‘t help it here. 8mo
wanderinglynn I felt similarly except I didn‘t finish the book. I bailed. 8mo

Amabear @wanderinglynn agreed. The concept was cool, but it wasn‘t executed well at all. 8mo

2. HP & the Half-Blood Prince
3. HP & the Goblet of Fire
4. Actors: Benedict Cumberbatch, Aidan Gillen, Peter Capaldi. Actresses: Helena Bonham Carter, Michelle Gomez, Olivia Colman

2) I like those days that swing between high 60s during the day and 40s at night.
3) I think it's 65 degrees. I just got up so I haven't had a chance to let the space heater help warm the place yet.
4) Rainy days with no place to go

I laughed out loud at times and I couldn‘t put the book down once I started. Word to the wise though, read Jane Eyre beforehand or never have any intentions of reading it because it will kind of ruin the ending for you. Not fully, but kinda sorta. I definitely look forward to what will happen to Thursday Next...
