Thursday Next, literary detective and newlywed is back to embark on an adventure that begins, quite literally on her own doorstep. It seems that Landen, her husband of four weeks, actually drowned in an accident when he was two years old. Someone, somewhere, sometime, is responsible. The sinister Goliath Corporation wants its operative Jack Schitt out of the poem in which Thursday trapped him, and it will do almost anything to achieve this - but bribing the ChronoGuard? Is that possible? Having barely caught her breath after The Eyre Affair, Thursday must battle corrupt politicians, try to save the world from extinction, and help the Neanderthals to species self-determination. Mastadon migrations, journeys into Just William, a chance meeting with the Flopsy Bunnies, and violent life-and-death struggles in the summer sales are all part of a greater plan.But whose? and why?

Reviews

'Don't ask, just read it. Fforde is a true original' -- Sunday Express 'Let yourself be entertained by a witty romp' -- Sunday Telegraph 'This year's grown up J K Rowling' -- Sunday Times 'Douglas Adams would be proud' -- Scotsman 'The reader is catapulted in and out of truth and imagination on a hectic, humorous and neatly constructed chase that finishes by tying up every loose end in the most satisfying, novelistic way' -- The Times 'Jasper Fforde's fascinating first novel reads like a Jules Verne story told by Lewis Carroll...Forget all the rules of time, space, and reality; just sit back and enjoy the adventure as Thursday, with the help of Jane Eyre's Mr Rochester, fights a desperate battle in which Jane herself is in jeopardy.' -- Sunday Telegraph 'Ingenious - I'll watch Jasper Fforde nervously' -- Terry Pratchett 'A stroke of fantasy genius ... Unashamedly silly, but also marvellously intelligent ... Hilarious' -- SFX 20021001 'An absolute joy to read. Is it a crime novel? I couldn't really tell, I was laughing too much.' -- Birmingham Post 20021001 'What Fforde is pulling is a variation on the classic Monty Python gambit: the incongruous juxtaposition og low comedy and high erudition - this scam has not been pulled off with such off-hand finesse and manic verve since the Pythons shut up shop. 'The Eyre Affair' is a silly book for smart people: postmodernism played as raw, howling farce' -- Independent 20021001 'Compulsively readable ... catnip to book lovers ... totally absorbing' -- Time Out New York 20030327 'It is always a privilege to watch the birth of a cult, and Hodder has just cut the umbilical cord. Always ridiculous, often hilarious ... blink and you miss a vital narrative leap. There are shades of Douglas Adams, Lewis Carroll, 'Clockwork Orange' and '1984'. And that's just for starters' -- Time Out 20030327 'Dark, funny, complex and inventive, The Eyre Affair is a breath of fresh air, and is easily one of the strongest debuts in years.' -- Locus 20030327 'A decidedly quirky and strangely thought-provoking debut novel' -- Scotland on Sunday 20030327 'The eccentric epic - A read that'll leave you breathless' -- Elle 20030327 'Engaging and captivating ... not just one of the best sequels I've ever read, but one of the best damn books to come out of the UK in some time.' -- Engima 20020801
