About the book
It is a time of unrest in the BookWorld. Only the diplomatic skills of ace literary detective Thursday Next can avert a devastating genre war. But a week before the peace talks, Thursday vanishes.

'Fans of the late Douglas Adams, or, even, Monty Python, will feel at home with Fforde'

'A riot of puns, in-jokes and literary allusions that Fforde carries off with aplomb'

'Fforde's books are more than just an ingenious idea.  They are written with buoyant zest and are tautly plotted. They have empathetic heroes and heroines who nearly make terrible mistakes and suitably dastardly villains who do.  They also have more twists and turns than Christie, and are embellished with the rich details of Dickens or Pratchett'
