    It's Easter in Reading, a bad time for eggs, and no one can remember the last sunny day. Ovoid D-class nursery celebrity Humpty Stuyvesant Van Dumpty III, minor baronet, ex-convict, and former millionaire philanthropist, is found shattered to death beneath a wall in a shabby area of town. All the evidence points to his ex-wife, who has conveniently shot herself.

    Bruce Sabin says: "Total Whimsy"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    I am a big fan of Jasper Fforde and have read all the books in his Thursday Next series. I was thrilled to have another book by this author to read, but gave up halfway through. The plot was boring and the wonderful, quirky allusions to fictional characters that populated the other books was lacking here. It seemed to me that he was writing down to his readers in this one. I would happily recommend his other books but not this one.
