Finished the first book in this series. Bought it on the recommendation of this thread. Enjoyed it very much. Thanks for that

I was planning on writing a bit on Jasper Fforde here to recommend his works, but I'm happy to find he has already been praised !
My wife-to-be and I greatly enjoy ourselves when reading the adventures of Thursday Next and every friend that was presented with the opportunity to discover those books also had a great time.
There is also another series of books set in the same universe, the "Nursery Crime Division" books :
- The Big Over Easy
- The Fourth Bear

I haven't read any of the Thursday Next books yet, but greatly enjoyed the Nursery Crimes Division books.

I you liked the NCD books, then I'm pretty sure you'll love the Thursday Next series...the last volume might be a bit weak, but all the others are outstanding!
the NCD books tell a shorter and easier story while the TN series tells a long and complex tale. Both are very well done and I hope we'll see more in time...

Is anyone else not only vastly amused by the TN books - but also the deliciousness of reading about UltraWord(tm) on a DRM'd e-book (The Well of Lost Plots)? Just brilliant. Hats off.
