Product description

Review

Praise for THE BIG OVER EASY: - -

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

Consistently clever - Publishers Weekly

This is the first if best-selling Fforde's hilarious, absurd and utterly compelling new series of nursery crimes for adults. - Daily Mirror

Fforde offers a cascade of puns, plays on words, surrealism, satire and verbal virtuosity...Astonishingly, he is funny for 400 pages - The Times

Fforde is a master entertainer, and a wordsmith of dexterous genius. - The Scotsman

Review

With its witty literary allusions, social satire and blurred boundaries between fiction and reality, it's all completely mad, very funny . . . It also adds to Fforde's growing reputation as one of Britain's most inventive novelists and the thriller element keeps you guessing too. - Word

What makes Fforde a star is not his ebullient cleverness, but the elusive sympathy factor. However ridiculous his themes seem, his characters have a compelling immediacy. - Independent

It would be hard not to be won over by Fforde's undeniable energy and the sheer, unrelenting number of gags - Daily Mail

THE FOURTH BEAR sees one of our funniest and most inventive authors at the height of his powers. The jokes come so fast that it is clear the author simply let his imagination off the leash and had a great time while writing it. You will have a great time reading it too. - Daily Express

Fforde is inventive and hugely funny. - The Times

THE FOURTH BEAR is a great choice as it has everything - humour, intrigue and cucumbers as a matter of national security . . . will have you wondering how you haven't discovered Fforde before. - Anys Scoular, Observer

Praise for Jasper Fforde's new crime series - :

Fforde's dexterously tailored nonsense has an underlying thread of shrewd satire, and the author's own wry, dry narration helps to compensate for the omission in this abridgement of so many of his gloriously surreal jokes. - The Times
