A born wordsmith of effervescent imagination
Jasper Fforde's imagination is a literary volcano in full spate . . . SOMETHING ROTTEN is arguably Fforde's best book yet . . . Fforde has a knack of creating memorable characters whom the reader greets like long-lost friends . . . Buy it; chuckles guaranteed.
It is always a privilege to watch the birth of a cult, and Hodder has just cut the umbilical cord ... There are shades of Douglas Adams, Lewis Carroll, 'Clockwork Orange' and '1984'. And that's just for starters
Don't ask, just read it. Fforde is a true original
The pleasure in Fforde's quirkily brilliant books is that they can be enjoyed on so many levels by all ages.
Ingenious - I'll watch Jasper Fforde nervously
[Fforde's] brand of inspired lunacy truly stands on its own ... this new book completes his creation of a world of true literary comic genius
An immensely enjoyable, almost compulsive experience
