Product description

Book Description

A Sunday Times bestseller in hardback, THE BIG OVER EASY heralds the start of an ingenious new series from the creator of the international phenomenon Thursday Next.

Review

Consistently clever - Publishers Weekly

I love it. THE BIG OVER EASY is great not just because it's very funny...but also because it works properly as a whodunit...Comic genius. - Observer

A riot of puns, in-jokes and literary allusions that Fforde carries off with aplomb - Daily Mail

Now humour is notoriously subjective so what I've just described might just sound plain daft to you. But I love it. THE BIG OVER EASY is great not just because it's very funny but also because it works properly as a whodunnit. Comic genius. - Observer,Peter Guttridge

More twists and turns than Christie ... embellished with the rich details of a Dickens or Pratchett. A real treat. - Independent

The combination of fantasy and a (more or less) classic murder . . . makes a wild and enjoyable change - Sunday Telegraph

Very accomplished indeed. - Guardian

Fforde offers a cascade of puns, plays on words, surrealism, satire and verbal virtuosity based on children's rhymes and stories. Astonishingly, he stays funny for 400 pages . . . Even more amazingly, there's a real plot there, a proper mystery with a surprise solution - The Times
