Reviews

No summaries can do justice to [Fforde's] sheer inventiveness, wit, complexity, erudition, unexpectedness and originality - The TimesReading 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. - ScotsmanFans of the late Douglas Adams, or, even, Monty Python, will feel at home with Fforde - HeraldTrue literary comic genius - Sunday ExpressDouglas Adams would be proud - ScotsmanIngeniousForget all the rules of time, space and reality; just sit back and enjoy the adventure. - Telegraph'Fforde's books are more than just an ingenious idea. They are written with buoyant zest and are tautly plotted. They have empathetic heroes and heroines who nearly make terrible mistakes and suitably dastardly villains who do. They also have more twists and turns than Christie, and are embellished with the rich details of Dickens or Pratchett - Independent
