What's Inside

Read More Read Less


'Fans of the late Douglas Adams, or, even, Monty Python, will feel at home with Fforde'
While indeed delightfully absurd, Fforde's genius is in making it all make a strange form of sense. Funny. Multi-layered, Enjoyable. Just go and read the damned thing!
'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.'
More inspired lunacy in a truly funny read
<i>Press Association</i>
'Any worries that by now the Thursday Next series would have settled into a rut prove groundless here, as Jasper Fforde delivers another swerveball . . . It's the usual mix of fiendishly clever plotting and exquisitely executed comedy setpieces' ****
Parallel-universe larks with surreal heroine Thursday Next, trying to get some down time in Swindon. Fat chance
<i>Mail on Sunday Live Magazine</i>
Engaging lunacy
<i>Sunday Telegraph</i>
As always, Fforde delivers a winner - immensely entertaining and easy to read. The characters are well rounded, and the dialogue snappy, amusing and filled with the usual plays on words and general silliness . . . If you've not experienced Fforde's unique humour before, then check the Thursday Next series out.
<i>The British Fantasy Society</i>
Praise for Jasper Fforde
'Jam packed with ingeniously witty ideas'
A riot of puns, in-jokes and literary allusions that Fforde carries off with aplomb
<i>Daily Mail</i>
'Forget all the rules of time, space and reality; just sit back and enjoy the adventure.'
<i>Sunday Telegraph</i>
This is truly wacky, laugh-out-loud, literary-laced stuff. He is very clever.
