First Among Sequels por Jasper Fforde
After reading all of the Thursday Next novels, I am still ready for more. Fforde set up the plot of the next book - when will it be available??? ( )
Another great Thursday Next novel from Jasper Fforde. If only they weren't so far apart...
Part of my "catching up with series" month-or-two, again, this book was originally marked down as "read" but I cant remember it, so probably haven't.
Fifth in the Thursday Next books and Thursday is having to cope with not being a LiteraryAgent (whilst she is really), having 3 children (including one with an existence problem in that she doesn't actually exist), multiple versions of herself running around BookWorld (none of whom she actually likes), and trying to sort out various issues in and out of BookWorld.
Another great Next book, stepping out of the quadriology of the 1st four books, and giving the series a suitable jumping off point for the next set of books in the series (with the concept of multiple Thursdays in the same story line). Not for those who have not read a Thursday Next book before, it can take a while to get used to the multiverse world of Thursday.
Consistently good series. Consistently inventive series. And I suspect a rather excellent exposition on descent into madness.
I think that at book five in this series, Fforde is running a little low on novel elaborations of the theme and on targets for satire. He broadens the scope here, from the plot—the (real) UK government tries to unload a stupidity surplus—to the book- and time-travel concepts—Fforde goes meta! I found it fun, if occasionally confused and inane. The plot isn't very cohesive. Perhaps Fforde's first idea ran flat, so he had to add in another plot line.

By the time we reach the fifth volume, First Among Sequels, Fforde has firmly regained his footing, and the plot moves along like a well-turned simile.
First Among Sequels is for adults who want sophisticated wit with their fantasy, but who still possess an appreciation for the intricate worldbuilding of a well-imagined children’s novel.
While Fforde's humor can be affecting, it can also grate with its self-consciousness, as the author nudges readers to admire his verbal dexterity.
It's an ingenious premise that makes for a thrill ride of a read. And it's not entirely necessary — though perhaps more fun — to read the books in the proper order. Fforde gives enough background in "Thursday Next" to inform readers of all they need to know to find both books hilarious, exhilarating and just a bit exhausting.
Fans of satiric literary humor are in for a treat.
