Product description

Review

'No summaries can do justice to the sheer inventiveness, wit, complexity, erudition, unexpectedness and originality of the works, nor to their vast repertoire of intricate word-play and puns.' (The Times)

A born wordsmith of effervescent imagination (Christina Hardyment, Independent)

[Fforde's] brand of inspired lunacy truly stands on its own . . . this new book completes his creation of a world of true literary comic genius (Sunday Express on THE WELL OF LOST PLOTS)

'Fforde describes a melange of the mundane and the phantasmagorical that reads like a well edited Harry Potter; FAS is for adults who want sophisticated wit with their fantasy, but who still possess an appreciation for the intricate world-building of a well-imagined children's novel... But the unashamedly bookish will find it satisfying: what dedicated reader would not laugh at the suggestion of a parallel universe in which Jude the Obscure is renowned as a comic novel?' (New Statesman)

"I always experience a spasm of warmth when I see Jasper Fforde's name in the lists, or, as is currently the case, on Waterstone's '3 for 2' tables. Go, Jasper, go: I think. It's not just that the creator of Thursday Next (sleuth extraordinaire) and laureate of Swindon town ('Jewel of the M4') is the wittiest novelist around - and wit is not in over-supply in popular fiction. Jasper is the only novelist ever to acknowledge me as inspirational." (John Sutherland, Telegraph)

Don't ask, just read it. Fforde is a true original (Sunday Express on LOST IN A GOOD BOOK)

Ingenious - I'll watch Jasper Fforde nervously (Terry Pratchett on THE EYRE AFFAIR)

Jasper Fforde's imagination is a literary volcano in full spate . . . SOMETHING ROTTEN is arguably Fforde's best book yet . . . Fforde has a knack of creating memorable characters whom the reader greets like long-lost friends . . . Buy it; chuckles guaranteed. (Independent)

The pleasure in Fforde's quirkily brilliant books is that they can be enjoyed on so many levels by all ages. (Sydney Morning Herald)
