Leaving Swindon behind her to hide out in the Well of Lost Plots (the place where all fiction is created), Thursday Next, Literary Detective and soon-to-be one parent family, ponders her next move from within an unpublished book of dubious merit entitled 'Caversham Heights'. Landen, her husband, is still eradicated, Aornis Hades is meddling with Thursday's memory, and Miss Havisham - when not sewing up plot-holes in 'Mill on the Floss' - is trying to break the land-speed record on the A409. But something is rotten in the state of Jurisfiction. Perkins is 'accidentally' eaten by the minotaur, and Snell succumbs to the Mispeling Vyrus. As a shadow looms over popular fiction, Thursday must keep her wits about her and discover not only what is going on, but also who she can trust to tell about it ...



With grammasites, holesmiths, trainee characters, pagerunners, baby dodos and an adopted home scheduled for demolition, 'The Well of Lost Plots' is at once an addictively exciting adventure and an insight into how books are made, who makes them - and why there is no singular for 'scampi'.



In the words of one critic: 'Don't ask. Just read it.'

A born wordsmith of effervescent imagination

[Fforde's] brand of inspired lunacy truly stands on its own ... this new book completes his creation of a world of true literary comic genius

The third of this cult series sees Jasper Fforde hitting his stride ... should be a joy to anyone who loves reading

A book this self-conciously clever has no right being so much damned fun

Ingenious - I'll watch Jasper Fforde nervously
Terry Pratchett on The Eyre Affair

The Eyre Affair is a silly book for smart people; postmodernism played as raw, howling farce
Independent

It is always a privilege to watch the birth of a cult, and Hodder has just cut the umbilical cord ...
There are shades of Douglas Adams, Lewis Carroll, 'Clockwork Orange' and '1984'. And that's just for starters
