Review

'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

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

Amazing . . . Fforde's literary invention and playfulness is unique (Poisoned Pen)

[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)

'The pleasure in Fforde's quirkily brilliant books is that they can be enjoyed on so many levels by all ages. For the younger reader they are straight up and down crazy fun in a world where dodos and Neanderthals exist, where cloning is commonplace and where talking monkeys in floral dresses are (almost) part and parcel of everyday life. For the older reader there are the extra joys of literary references, wordplay, silliness and satire, such as in the TV quiz show NAME THAT FRUIT and the politics and current affairs show EVADE THE QUESTION TIME'. - Sydney Morning Herald

An immensely enjoyable, almost compulsive experience (New York Times on Lost in a Good Book)

Don't ask, just read it. Fforde is a true original (Sunday Express on Lost in a Good Book)

It's a lot of fun, and beautifully done, as ever, by Jasper Fforde. (Bookshelf)

the best yet, which is quite remarkable considering how good the others were. (Express)

It is always a privilege to watch the birth of a cult, and Hodder has just cut the umbilical cord ... There are shades of Douglas Adams, Lewis Carroll, 'Clockwork Orange' and '1984'. And that's just for starters (Time Out, on 'The Eyre Affair')

this is brilliantly conceived and cleverly written. An absolute gem. (Herald Sun, Australia)

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)

'Totally and utterly brilliant. An absolute must for any Fforde fan' - Western Mail

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

'a wild rush of outrageous notions and silly jokes and leaves you feeling pleasantly tipsy' - People Magazine

Book Description

The fourth book in the phenomenally successful, bestselling Thursday Next adventures, from an author with the trans-genre appeal of Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams.
