A born wordsmith of effervescent imagination
[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
Don't ask, just read it. Fforde is a true original
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
Ingenious - I'll watch Jasper Fforde nervously
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.
The pleasure in Fforde's quirkily brilliant books is that they can be enjoyed on so many levels by all ages.
