The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde

The Big Over Easy - Jasper Fforde

Series: Nursery Crime #1

 

The mystery aspect was somewhat interesting, so I kept reading to find out the whodunnit, but most of the humour fell flat for me. Mary Mary's hero worship of Chymes got tiresome real fast and Jack's home life was pretty dull to read about. I'm not saying I really wanted him to be a divorced alcoholic or anything, but those parts of the book kinda dragged. I haven't decided whether I'll read the next one.

 

The solution to the mystery was...mad.
