I can't remember exactly when I first came across Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next series, but I do remember that I read it out of order, reading Lost in a Good Book before I came across The Eyre Affair. I immediately fell in love with the series, and have read every one of the books almost upon their release since I got started on it.
I didn't do a good job keeping up with things over the last few months, though, and only knew of the release of One of Our Thursdays is Missing when a friend (one whom I introduced to the series) pointed it out to me in the library. We borrowed it and 3 of us made our way through it before the due date.
The first two books in the series are still my favorite (and I really liked his first in what seems to be another series, Shades of Grey), but this one is a good read too. There are some really funny sections, and I really liked the character Sprockett. I thought the little commentary on the RealWorld at the end of the book was nicely done too.
Overall, it's hard to beat a good Jasper Fforde read... at least, in my book.
