(And all my other copies are in paperback anyway.)
Of course, hardcover might be more practical in the long run; it will stand up to more re-reads!
#2 - I iwsh it were so opver here, but judging from The forth bear I won't be so lucky. I still haven't seen that in pd yet, and its been ou tthe best part of year.
I wouldn't be able to stand waiting for it, either. Hey, do you have a cat named Fiona? It the name of one of my dogs.
What a unique face she had! Sorry she's not with you any longer. I've lost a cat, too, by poison from a neighbor.
Worthy addition to the series.
Anyways to the story. I really liked it, so it was well worth the wait. However, for my liking there was a bit too much repetition with basics (facts about the world known from previous works) being explained all over again. And as usual there are a lot of loose ends left at the end of the book which have to wait for a resolution until the next three (!) Thursday Next books are published.
I particularly liked the jabs at reality TV -- favorite quote: "Reality TV was to me the worst form of entertainment -- the modern equivalent of paying sixpence to watch lunatics howling at the walls down at the local madhouse."
I picked this up at the bookstore the other day (hardcover) but haven't actually opeend it yet!
The only thing I missed was how the chapter intros used to be attributed to actual characters, such as Thursday's stalker/biographer.
Re: Next Three
I remember reading an interview with Jasper Fforde where he mentioned that he plans to finish this main story arch within the next three books, so that there will again be four books which are closely connected (as with the first four). So there are still more adventures with Thursday Next in store for us :)
