Product description

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. Has she simply returned home to the RealWorld or is this something more sinister? All is not yet lost. Living at the quiet end of speculative fiction is the written Thursday Next, eager to prove herself worthy of her illustrious namesake. The fictional Thursday is soon hot on the trail of her factual alter-ego, and quickly stumbles upon a plot so fiendish that it threatens the very BookWorld itself.

Review quote

'It is pure inspired lunacy and the funniest book you will see this year.' -- Daily Express '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 '[One of Our Thursdays is Missing has] freshness and invention bursting from every page' -- Sunday Times 'Jam packed with ingeniously witty ideas' -- 'This cleverly written, intelligent and witty book had me captivated from the first line ... the author is clearly highly intelligent, well-educated and very well read ... It feels at times as though the author is channelling the spirit of the late, great Douglas Adams' -- British Fantasy Society Journal '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 'Fans will lap up the eccentric qualities they've come to expect from Fforde' -- News of the World
