'Reading a Fforde novel feels like taking off on a magic carpet, only to be picked up by another and another and taken on new flights of fantasy . . . When the plot is thundering along, peppered with jokes, lively dialogue and silly names . . . you just sit back and enjoy the ride.' - Scotsman'Jam packed with ingeniously witty ideas' - SFX.co.ukA riot of puns, in-jokes and literary allusions that Fforde carries off with aplomb - Daily Mail'Fans of the late Douglas Adams, or, even, Monty Python, will feel at home with Fforde' - Herald'Forget all the rules of time, space and reality; just sit back and enjoy the adventure.' - Sunday Telegraph'Any worries that by now the Thursday Next series would have settled into a rut prove groundless here, as Jasper Fforde delivers another swerveball . . . It's the usual mix of fiendishly clever plotting and exquisitely executed comedy setpieces' **** - SFXAs always, Fforde delivers a winner - immensely entertaining and easy to read. The characters are well rounded, and the dialogue snappy, amusing and filled with the usual plays on words and general silliness . . . If you've not experienced Fforde's unique humour before, then check the Thursday Next series out. - The British Fantasy SocietyThis is truly wacky, laugh-out-loud, literary-laced stuff. He is very clever. - The Bookseller
