Description

The first book in the phenomenally successful Thursday Next series, from Number One bestselling author Jasper Fforde. ‘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
