I have really mixed feelings about this book. On one hand the characters and premise of the book are extremely interesting and enjoyable. BUT one character is named a swear word and this book swears copiously. One section is replete with f-bombs. I really loved the literary parts of this, but apparently Jasper Fforde thinks that people who love Dickens, Jane Eyre and the Austin crowd swear a lot. I don't think that those books have that kind of thing in them. To me that is just wrong. I don't know anyone who swears this way except people on the perimeter of my acquaintance. So if I were rating it on story value alone it is a 5. If I were rating it on entertainment value it is a 1. Sorry. Put me in the middle.
