/> Jasper Fforde has done it again in this genre-bending blend of crime fiction, fantasy, and top-drawer literary entertainment.

But peace and quiet remain elusive for Thursday, who soon discovers that the Well is a veritable linguistic free-for-all, where grammasites run rampant, plot devices are hawked on the black market, and lousy bookslike the one she has taken up residence inare scrapped for salvage. To make matters worse, a murderer is stalking the personnel of Jurisfiction and it's up to Thursday to save the day. A brilliant feat of literary showmanship filled with wit, fantasy, and effervescent originality, this Ffordian tour de force will appeal to fans of Douglas Adams and P. G. Wodehouse.… (mais)

    The Big Over Easy de Jasper Fforde (TomWaitsTables)
    TomWaitsTables: It's the novel Thurday was living in, while on the Character Exchange Program.

    The City of Dreaming Books de Walter Moers (bell7)
    bell7: Similarly a zany tale with literary references and footnotes.

    Who's Afraid of Beowulf? de Tom Holt (Dr.Science)

Ich habe mich wirklich gut amüsiert! ( )
  Katzenkindliest | Apr 23, 2024 |
Still enjoying this series but I think this might have been my least favorite so far. I will read the next book and still like Thursday Next a whole bunch. One of my favorite characters in a fantasy series.

This is the third in the Thursday Next series and I found it tough finding my bearings not having read the previous two. Fforde has obviously created a world in the first two and it was confusing coming in cold. While Fforde's world is full of fun nuggets and clever winks to classic literature, I found that he often overdoes it, to the detriment of the plot (ironically) and to the characters whom I found rather flat and static. I often found my interest waning.
Certainly original but too lengthy and convoluted. ( )

The Didius Falco series was so entertaining on audio that I thought I'd try a Thursday Next. Not so wonderful to listen to. Part of the problem was that I left the speed on neutral; when I turned it up just to 110% it went much better, but still it wasn't the right book for the medium. Oh well. Lots of cute names, a serious threat to reading averted (very like the restrictions on ebooks instituted by publishers for libraries, as it happens), but it took too long to listen to. I'm sure I could have read it in text in a third the time. ( )

(AUDIO), book 3 of the series. In this one, Thursday is becoming a full-on agent in Jursifiction, her mentor is Mrs. Havisham, she's pregnant, her husband has been eradicated when he was 2, she's living in an unread book, and helping deal with some corporate shenanigans with the impending release of BOOK version 9, the operating system that runs all books. To say nothing of the protests that the Nursery Rhyme characters are having in support of better working conditions. As usually a very fun, and funny read. ( )

In Lost in a Good Book and The Well of Lost Plots, Fforde gets a bit bogged down in all the details of the fictional universe.
adicionado por Katya0133 | editarYale Review, David Galef (Oct 1, 2008)
 
Fforde's third novel featuring English sleuth Thursday Next is an interesting, enjoyable mix of detective story, fantasy, and literature.
adicionado por Katya0133 | editarSchool Library Journal, Ted Westervelt (Jun 1, 2004)
 
Like anchovies, Wagner, and Helmut Newton: will greatly appeal to people with unusual tastes--and befuddle everyone else.
adicionado por Katya0133 | editarKirkus Reviews (Feb 23, 2004)
 
Fforde has settled comfortably into series mode, producing another fun romp in an alternate universe where books are more real than reality.
adicionado por Katya0133 | editarLibrary Journal, Devon Thomas (Jan 15, 2004)
 
Fforde's sidesplitting sendup of an increasingly antibookish society is a sheer joy.

The other strand, the Picto-Phonetic Storytelling Systems, started with ClayTablet V2.1 and went through several competing systems (WaxTablet, Papyrus, VelliumPlus before merging into the award winning SCROLL, which was upgraded eight times to V3.3 before being swept aside by the all-new and clearly superior BOOK V1.

'Good. Item seven. The had had and that that problem. Lady Cavendish, weren't you working on this?' // Lady Cavendish stood up and gathered her thoughts. // 'Indeed. The use of had had and that that has to be strictly controlled; they can interrupt the ImaginoTransference quite dramatically, causing readers to go back over the sentence in confusion, something we try to avoid.' // 'Go on.' // 'It's mostly an unlicensed usage problem. At the last count David Copperfield alone had had had had sixty-three times, all but then unapproved. Pilgrim's Progress may also be a problem owing to its had had / that that ratio.' // 'So what's the problem in Progress?' // 'That that had that that ten times but had had had had only thrice. Increased had had usage had had to be overlooked but not if the number exceeds that that that usage.' // 'Hmm,' said the Bellman. 'I thought had had had had TGC's approval for use in Dickens? What's the problem?' // 'Take the first had had and that that in the book by way of example,' explained Lady Cavendish. 'You would have thought that that first had had had had good occasion to be seen as had, had you not? Had had had approval but had had had not; equally it is true to say that that that that had had approval but that that other that that had not.' // 'So the problem with that other that that was that--?' // 'That that other-other that that had had approval.' // 'Okay,' said the Bellman, whose head was in danger of falling apart like a chocolate orange, 'let me get this straight: David Copperfield, unlike Pilgrim's Progress, which had had had, had had had had. Had had had had TGC's approval?' // There was a very long pause. // 'Right,' said the Bellman with a sigh. 'That's it for the moment...'
