24. Something Rotten - Jasper Fforde
Four books down and if anything this series just gets better. I thought it impossible, but as the book reached its close, I spent the last two chapters just in awe of Fforde’s mastery of the plot and how everything came together, stretching back to elements from the first book. IT’S SO GOOD I CAN’T. I JUST CAN’T. MUST READ MORE.
Favourite quotation - ”Hamlet snorted disdainfully, then thought for a moment before adding: ‘If the real world were a book, it would never find a publisher. Over-long, detailed to the point of distraction - and ultimately without a major resolution.’
'Perhaps,' I said thoughtfully, 'that's exactly what we like about it.'
