An interesting mix of classic fantasy and modern technology. Rather different from what I have expected, but I guess I should have known better than to expect anything traditional from Jasper Fforde. I tend to like the absurdity of his universes and fortunately this was no exception. I loved Jennifer Strange as a main character, and got quite fond of Timmy Prawn as well. I would have loved to hear more about Kazam! so I wonder if Jasper Fforde is planning any sequels. I'm not entirely sure if the universe would allow it, but if anybody can make it work, he can.
