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 'Fans of the late Douglas Adams, or, even, Monty Python, will feel at home with Fforde' -- Herald 'Forget all the rules of time, space and reality; just sit back and enjoy the adventure.' -- Sunday Telegraph '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' **** -- SFX 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. -- The British Fantasy Society This is truly wacky, laugh-out-loud, literary-laced stuff. He is very clever. -- The Bookseller I love Jasper Fforde's novels but have to admit that reviewing them is hard work - how to explain his complicated alternative universe without revealing too much of the plot and at the same time encouraging readers to plunge in and just enjoy the ride? All I can say is - I hope you enjoy this as much as I did and that it encourages you to read the others - you won't be disappointed -- Euro Crime Hugely funny and gloriously imaginative -- Daily Express
