9780340963111: The Woman Who Died a Lot

The BookWorld's leading enforcement officer Thursday Next is four months into an enforced semi-retirement following an assassination attempt. She returns home to Swindon for what you'd expect to be a time of recuperation. If only life were that simple. Thursday is faced with an array of family problems - son Friday's lack of focus since his career in the Chronoguard was relegated to a might-have-been, daughter Tuesday's difficulty perfecting the Anti-Smote shield needed to thwart an angry Deity's promise to wipe Swindon off the face of the earth, and Jenny, who doesn't exist. And that's not all. With Goliath attempting to replace Thursday at every opportunity with synthetic Thursdays, the prediction that Friday's Destiny-Aware colleagues will die in mysterious circumstances, and a looming meteorite that could destroy all human life on earth, Thursday's retirement is going to be anything but easy.

Recensione:

Praise for Jasper Fforde ( :)

'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.uk)

A 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)

Parallel-universe larks with surreal heroine Thursday Next, trying to get some down time in Swindon. Fat chance ( Mail on Sunday Live Magazine)

More inspired lunacy in a truly funny read ( Press Association)

'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' **** ( SFX)

Engaging lunacy ( Sunday Telegraph)

As 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 Society)

While indeed delightfully absurd, Fforde's genius is in making it all make a strange form of sense. Funny. Multi-layered, Enjoyable. Just go and read the damned thing! ( Wordsmiff)

This is truly wacky, laugh-out-loud, literary-laced stuff. He is very clever. ( The Bookseller on The Woman Who Died a Lot)

You won't be disappointed ( Euro Crime)

Hugely funny and gloriously imaginative ( Daily Express)
