I have enjoyed this series of books. It's set in northeast Mississippi near where my daughter lives. I grew up in Mississippi and now live in Alabama. This had some of the worst Southern accents I've heard on audio. There are also many mispronunciations of geographic names. Of course, if you are unfamiliar with the area, this won't bother you. The story was good, but listening to it was not a pleasure. This is not the same narrator used in the first two books of this series.
This book had me screaming at my radio. How could people who were so smart be so dense? I had things figured out way before them. It might have been better unabridged, but I wouldn't want to waste any more time. Narrator was nothing to write home about either.
This second title in the Thursday Next series was excellent. Everything I like about the first one was back. Can't wait for the third.
I had more fun listening to this book. I loved the puns, the literature, the characters, and the entire fantastic world of Thursday Next. The librarian in me wants her job.
