The Fourth Bear – Jasper fforde

OK, it’s kind of throwaway and a bit lightweight but on the other hand the two series of Fforde books really are pretty entertaining. The ‘Thursday Next’ books, which allow Fforde a braoder range of literary allusions, work better I think than the Nursery Crime series of which this is the latest instalment.

Still, it is a welcome addition to the list but if you’ve not read any of his stuff this would not be the best place to start.

(Note: Stars for entertainment value rather than pure literary merit.)
