Praise for Jasper Fforde — :
'Reading a Fforde novel feels like taking off on a magic carpet, only to be picked up by another and another and taken on new flights of fantasy . . . When the plot is thundering along, peppered with jokes, lively dialogue and silly names . . . you just sit back and enjoy the ride.' — Scotsman
'Jam packed with ingeniously witty ideas' — SFX.co.uk
A riot of puns, in-jokes and literary allusions that Fforde carries off with aplomb — Daily Mail

More inspired lunacy in a truly funny read — Press Association

As always, Fforde delivers a winner - immensely entertaining and easy to read.

If you've not experienced Fforde's unique humour before, then check the Thursday Next series out. — The British Fantasy Society

This is truly wacky, laugh-out-loud, literary-laced stuff. He is very clever. — The Bookseller on The Woman Who Died a Lot
