    1984 meets Monty Python

    Not to be mistaken for the, uh, romance novel of similar name. This one has an interesting take on post-apocalyptic fiction (the relevant apocalypse was 700 years ago, and has as much bearing on the lives of the characters as the middle ages have for us). I'd describe this book as a light-hearted cross between 1984 and Monty Python. This book is one of my favourites! I loved the world-building, snarky humour and that this book is just sheer fun to read.

    This is very different from his Thursday Next series. Fforde does a terrific job of dangling clues to the underlying mystery, while keeping us entertained by the unusual world he has created. While the tone boarders on darkness, the lead characters are engaging and the pacing good. Shades of caste systems, concentration camps, witch trials, Logan's Run, and Bradbury color the book. The writing, the interesting premise and curiosity have me wishing the next book would come out!
