[For Kerrie´s alphabet in crime meme]
In my current read there are jokes and puns aplenty.
Sergeant Mary Mary is transferred to Reading police station.
“´Mary?´ said an officer who was carrying a large potted plant in the manner of someone who thinks it is well outside their job description. ´… How often do you water these things?´
´That one?´ replied Mary without emotion. ´Never. It´s plastic.´”
´Jack, I want you to meet Detective Sergeant Mary´.
´Hello,´ said Jack.
´Mary Mary,´ said Mary Mary.
´Don´t play the fool, Spratt,´ cut in Briggs.
´It´s Mary Mary,´ explained Mary. ´That´s my name.´
´Mary Mary? Where are you from? Baden-Baden?´
Perhaps there are too many jokes and too little plot in Jasper Fforde´s “The Big Over Easy”. At least I got a bit tired after a few chapters and left the book behind in our cottage.
A non-review? I am not quite sure yet. Maybe I´ll pick it up again some other day.
