Happy Black Friday. I am not out shopping. I have no intention of going out shopping. And that makes me happy.
The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde
Oh my gosh! Hysterical!! Join Investigator Jack Spratt as he investigates crimes for the Nursery Division! What really happened to Humpty Dumpty? Evidence says he was shot, but who shot him and why? What a mess. With his new assistant Mary Mary, Jack is on the case.
There's also a sequel, which I believe is called The Fourth Bear, but I've not read it yet. I'm sure it's just as zany as the first!
Also by Jasper Fforde-- The Eyre Affair. Someone is hopping around copies of Jane Eyre trying to change the story! Thursday Next (Yep, that's her name. I think it took me the first quarter of the book to figure that out!) is on the job. Related, but not technically connected to the Nursery Crimes books. At least I don't think there's a connection anywhere, but I haven't read the rest of the Thursday Next books, of which there are several.
Anyway, much fun to be had in the realm of literary mystery!
