Item Details

The Bookworld's leading enforcement officer, Thursday Next, has been forced into a semiretirement following an assassination attempt, returning home to Swindon and her family to recuperate. But Thursday's children have problems that demand she become a mother of invention: Friday's career struggles in the Chronoguard, where he is relegated to a might-have-been; Tuesday's trouble perfecting the Anti-Smote shield, needed in time to thwart an angry Deity's promise to wipe Swindon off the face of the earth; and the issue of Thursday's third child, Jenny, who doesn't exist except as a confusing and disturbing memory. With Goliath attempting to replace Thursday at every opportunity with synthetic Thursdays, and a call from the Bookworld to hunt down Pagerunners who have jumped into the Realworld, Thursday's convalescence is going to be anything but restful as the week ahead promises to be one of the Next family's oddest.

For a while Jasper Fforde seemed to be growing a little tired of Tuesday Next. This book is a return to form, blazing with inventiveness, humour, and a couple of moments that actually brought the beginnings of tears to these jaded old eyes. Tuesday is now into the far reaches of middle age, coping with a body that's taken years of abuse, teenage children dishing it out, a patchy, unreliable memory, and obtuse, know-it-all bosses who were in diapers when she was saving the world. Sometimes her enemies are the only reliable people she knows. But her commitment to her mission and her husband pull her through once again. I can't wait for the next one!

Another great book by Jasper Fforde! It feels a little dull, like half the book is missing, but the story is well written and another great read. Look forward to the next one.
