Jasper Fforde’s time-traveling, book-jumping detective Thursday Next is a hit with fans and critics. Each book in this humorous and intelligent series has hit nationwide best-seller lists. Here, Thursday must save the world from Yorrick Kaine and the evil Goliath Corporation while trying to recover her lost husband from the timestream and raise their son, Friday. Emily Gray’s spirited narration perfectly captures the zany humor and charm of this delightful novel. Fans of Monty Python and Douglas Adams won’t want to miss this one.
If you liked the other Thursday Next books, you'll probably like this one too. Includes all the character and plot twists you'd expect...
This entry in Jasper Fforde's series has more of Thursday's exploits as well as the literary in-jokes that can be expected. In addition to the usual action-packed yet intellectual and metaphorical ideas found in a common Thursday book, the element of time travel and inter-world travel introduced in previous installments is used with even more confusing yet exciting implications. The unpredictability of the plot but thorough enjoyability of the writing and characters make this a must read. Although this is part of the Thursday Next series, it is also possible to read it as a stand-alone novel although reading the series in order makes you appreciate more of the references towards past events.
