I didn't love the last two Thursday Next books, they just didn't cut it. This one though, loved it!

Another fun entry for Thursday Next. This one takes place totally in the "real" world, much like the last one took place in the book world. I'm finding that I prefer the books that travel back and forth between the two. I like getting both the political and the literary satire.

It's interesting to read a book in the Thursday Next series that doesn't involve the Bookworld in one way or another.

I missed the bookworld that wasn't featured in this book and with my limited memory capacity I've forgotten most of the thing happened in previous books. I was not doing this book justice since I didn't really follow the whole ti...

The Woman Who Died a Lot And yet another one of Fforde’s creations that I thoroughly enjoyed. Having lost her ability to read herself into the Book World after the accident that almost killed her, Thursday Next is read to join the work force again. Not as head of the newly reinstated SO-27, as she h...

If you aren't reading this series, you should be.It's funny, it's smart, it is increasingly complex and devious, and mostly it's just a universe that I can't imagine NOT wanting to live in. Thursday is getting older and I was worried about that - but after we got her back from the near-assassinatio...
