Review

Praise for Jasper Fforde (:)

'Fforde is a master entertainer, and a wordsmith of dexterous genius.' (Scotsman)

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

'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)

'Fans of the late Douglas Adams, or, even, Monty Python, will feel at home with Fforde' (Herald)
