Praise for The Thursday Next Collection 1-3: The Eyre Affair, Lost in a Good Book, The Well of Lost Plots

  • 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 -

  • 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
