Review of The Song of the Quarkbeast by Jasper Fforde
Book Two of the Chronicles of Kazam
Fforde combines wit and literary acumen with pure silliness to create worlds I love to spend time in.
Jennifer Strange and Kazam Mystical Arts Management are now part of the cast of characters permanently running around in my head. Magic and wizards and kings and (as always) tongue-in-cheek bureaucracy at all turns make this a wonderful, quirky read during which you will laugh softly to yourself and then turn around and laugh out loud.
This second book of the series is just as much fun as the first. I especially enjoyed the revealed secret to wizards being long-lived.
Do yourself a favor. Read this book.
If you are not already a Jasper Fforde fan, read this book and then go read all of his other books. You’ll be glad you did. But read The Last Dragonslayer first.
I give it 4 stars.
