Boof 27 of 52 -- Jasper Fforde's The Big Over Easy: A Nursery Crime
I always had a thing against modern nursery rhymes, which is why I loved the super violent original ones instead since they were just so damn nice.
I thought they were just a little too "un-violent" for their intended audience.
Thankfully, Jasper Fforde had the mind to expose the seedy underbelly of Humpty Dumpty's world and the truth is finally out.
Oh, to get a peek inside of the creative and imaginative mind of Mr. Fforde.
"The Big Over Easy" is a skillful work of art and it was a pleasure to read although I did do a little too much eye-rolling.
It's a perfect summer read, full of satire, wit, and plenty to make you chuckle out loud. I loved it!
