Published: July 19th 2001 by Hodder and Stoughton
Buy it: Book Depository

Synopsis: There is another 1985, where London’s criminal gangs have moved into the lucrative literary market, and Thursday Next is on the trail of the new crime wave’s Mr Big.

Acheron Hades has been kidnapping characters from works of fiction and holding them to ransom. Jane Eyre is gone. Missing.

Thursday sets out to find a way into the book to repair the damage. But solving crimes against literature isn’t easy when you also have to find time to halt the Crimean War, persuade the man you love to marry you, and figure out who really wrote Shakespeare’s plays.

Perhaps today just isn’t going to be Thursday’s day. Join her on a truly breathtaking adventure, and find out for yourself. Fiction will never be the same again…

  1. I read this book several years ago and it is quite, quite different. Meant to read further, but have not up to now. Jasper Fforde is quite creative with his characters.

  2. Looks like a great book! I think this one would make me laugh because it sounds so quirky. It isn’t my usual genre but I’d definitely give it a try. I hope you enjoy it 😀
