Product Description

Review

'Fforde's books are more than just an ingenious idea. They are written with buoyant zest and are tautly plotted. They have empathetic heroes and heroines who nearly make terrible mistakes and suitably dastardly villains who do. They also have more twists and turns than Christie, and are embellished with the rich details of Dickens or Pratchett' (Independent)

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)

Book Description

Thursday Next returns in her sixth inventive, funny and fantastical adventure - a Number One bestseller.

Format: Hardcover
In the latest Thursday Next story, Fforde has remade the BookWorld in a new image. A new and simpler written Thursday Next is the protagonist and a lot of the perspective has been skewed to a new angle. I happen to really like it, but I can see what it might be a bit Marmitey- existing fans expecting another romp in the mould of Eyre Affair might be a bit disappointed. Though not a particularly inspired compraison, it reminds me of the 2009 Star Trek movie, that rewrote the history book of the series and divided opinion (I like that film too...).

The map at the beginning and end of the book made me worry that Fforde had gone all Lord Of The Rings and would be dwelling on long-winded geography, but actually it's a neat set-up for BookWorld 2.0, where different genres of book are now neighbours, and some genres are threatening all-out war... It's a premise that's good for a whole book-full of clever genre twists, puns, and other wordplay, and it's one of the most densely packed Fforde books to date for that kind of thing- which is a very long-winded way of saying, this book is very funny.

I'm surprised other reviwers, who are clearly also Fforde fans, have been so down on "One Of Our Thursdays...". After I had felt that the previous Thursday Next novel was beginning to offer diminishing returns, this is a really exciting new lease of life for the series. I ended up reading it in one day, putting it down only when absolutely necessary.

I love the Thursday Next novels and have read them all a number of times. I'd pre-ordered this one and was eagerly awaiting its publication. A week later, I feel mildly let down.

The problem is that the hero of this book is not the 'real' Thursday but her BookWorld version, whom we met in First Among Sequels. She's a pale shadow of the 'real' Thursday; okay, she learns a lot in the course of the novel, but she still lacks oomph.

There's some good stuff: Thursday's robot sidekick-cum-butler, Sprocket, is a classic fforde character and there are a few good jokes (Deal Or No Deal is a popular woodworking programme) but it doesn't stop many chapters from being frankly dull, something I never imagined fforde capable of.

The series is in danger of disappearing up its own tricksiness. Fforde proved in Shades Of Grey that has lost none of his eccentric brilliance, so perhaps it's time to call an end to Thursday's adventures and concentrate on Eddie & Jane.

Format: Paperback
One Of Our Thursdays Is Missing is the sixth novel in the popular Thursday Next series by Welsh author, Jasper Fforde. Not long after the Remake of BookWorld, it seems that Real World Thursday Next is missing. Written Thursday (Thursday 1-4 from First Among Sequels, the huggy one) has been trying to play Thursday with dignity, but the series is virtually unread, so the presence of an understudy allows her to investigate with the help of Sprocket, a clockwork butler she has acquired (everyone needs a butler). This instalment features Men in Plaid as enforcers, a Triumph Bonneville, inter-genre cabs, a book sabotaged by rhetorical worms, a geologist thrown from a window, and a car chase. Written Thursday travels to the Real World, meets the real Landen, is kidnapped by a Wiltshire Stiltonista, tries to interpret obscure clues to Thursday's whereabouts, travels up the Metaphoric River, meets some Loser Literary Siblings (The Mediocre Gatsby, Brian Heep, Tracy Capulet, Sharon Eyre etc) and is finally offered a job with Jurisfiction. Concepts like character assassins, a mime field, the Large Metaphor Collider and the intricacies of a character's backstory are also a source of entertainment. Fforde still delights with some absurd names like Keitel Black, Red Herring and D.J. Growling, and each chapter is prefaced by a pertinent passage from Bradshaw's BookWord Companion, which, we note, runs to at least fifteen editions, confirming that Colonel Bradshaw's eventual retirement must have been profitable. As always, Fforde is incredibly clever: this is a brilliant read.

Format: Hardcover
As only Japser FForde can imagine and create imaginary worlds, this book takes the world of books, turns it inside out, with interesting asides to present real world economics playing a factor, and tells a story from the "read" Thursday Next who sits in the book world and monitors the reading of the Thursday next series of books when some one actually reads one of the series making sure the the "read" characters are in place when a reader is reading and that they behave as the author intended. There is a feed back loop, however, from the reader's imagining of what they are reading to the book itself, among other interesting twists. We are about half way through our reading and enjoying it, chuckling and puzzling out the twists when they fly over our heads the first time. My husband and I read Japser FForde's books out loud and our daughter gets hooked when she hears us from another room in the house. We are fanatic fans of Jasper FForde and read all his books. One of us is a chemical physicist who likes science fiction and I am a a evolutionary ecologist and water colorist. Jasper FForde's imaginary worlds are interesting enough for both of us to enjoy together. This is not a stand alone book. You must know the characters from Thursday Next series of books by Jasper FForde to follow the characters, their behavior, and what to expect them to do.
