Book Review: The Last Dragonslayer

The Last Dragonslayer (The Last Dragonslayer, #1)The Last Dragonslayer by Jasper Fforde
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My book club chose this as our June read, and wow, am I glad we did. Our discussion was very lively, as all of us agreed that Jasper Fforde has created a fantastic premise and executed it flawlessly.

Our protagonist is a fifteen-year-old named Jennifer Strange. She’s been given tremendous responsibilities and challenges for such a tender age, but she’s up to the task. And if you didn’t already, you’ll believe in girl power as the story ramps up again and again, propelling Jennifer towards a destiny she’s only just recently learned about.

The rather complex ending, which was revealed when I least expected it, was breathtaking. It was one of those perfect gathering up of carefully dropped clues sprinkled throughout the book, into the only logical explanation. All the clues were in plain sight all along!

I can say that with confidence that future readers stumbling on this review will not have been spoiled. It’s going to hit you the same way, trust me on that.

I will absolutely be reading the rest of The Last Dragonslayer series. This is a story and a reality I really don’t want to let go of.
