About this item

The first installment in Jasper Ffordes New York Times bestselling series of Thursday Next novels introduces literary detective Thursday Next and her alternate reality of literature-obsessed England

Fans of Douglas Adams and P. G. Wodehouse will love visiting Jasper Fforde's Great Britain, circa 1985, when time travel is routine, cloning is a reality (dodos are the resurrected pet of choice), and literature is taken very, very seriously: its a bibliophiles dream. England is a virtual police state where an aunt can get lost (literally) in a Wordsworth poem and forging Byronic verse is a punishable offense. All this is business as usual for Thursday Next, renowned Special Operative in literary detection. But when someone begins kidnapping characters from works of literature and plucks Jane Eyre from the pages of Bront's novel, Thursday is faced with the challenge of her career. Fforde's ingenious fantasyenhanced by a Web site that re-creates the world of the novelunites intrigue with English literature in a delightfully witty mix. Thursdays zany investigations continue with six more bestselling Thursday Next novels, including One of Our Thursdays is Missing and the upcoming The Woman Who Died A Lot. Visit jasperfforde. com.

5.0 stars by FreeSpirit

I like this book a lot and read also the sequels. Just the right pace and mixture of drama and fantasy. Very funny parts, like where the uncle (a bit like the geek scientist in James Bond) invents cool items like the memory eraser: Uncle, where is the memory eraser? - What are you talking about? Jasper Fforde is a very interesting read. I really wish they would make a movie from this book, but I think he has no interest (or offers?) so far.
