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.'
'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>
'Fans of the late Douglas Adams, or, even, Monty Python, will feel at home with Fforde'
'Forget all the rules of time, space and reality; just sit back and enjoy the adventure.'
<i>Sunday Telegraph</i>
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>
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' ****
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>
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!
This is truly wacky, laugh-out-loud, literary-laced stuff. He is very clever.

You won't be disappointed
