Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyable I tend to like Jasper Fforde's tongue-in-cheek style and was very pleased to find that this book, written more for young adults from what I understand, was still clever and enjoyable in the style of his older books. I recommend it regularly to kids and adults alike.
