Fforde has the most amazing imagination and has created a fabulous world in which people hibernate through the severe winters. Everyone wants to gain rights to be entitled to the drug Morphenox, which makes you more likely to survive hibernation, and Charlie Worthing is no exception - so he's prepared to take the terrible risk of becoming a novice Winter Consul. But Morphenox comes with its own hazards: some people wake up as mindless nightwalkers and are 'parted out' as replacement body parts. With a fast-moving plot with a couple of twists, and a few laugh-out-loud moments, and this definitely doesn't disappoint.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:
In my very generous NSS.
Thank you so much!
Thank you so much!
A highly entertaining book set on an alternative Earth, where all humans hibernate during the winter. Very imaginative, with some surprises along the way.

Ooh thank you Rahar109, really looking forward to reading this! I think Diomedes might like it as well, although he will have to wait until I have finished it to get a look-in.....

Superb, superb, superb! I love Jasper Fforde's imagination. No cheese smuggling, no dodos going 'plock!', but a richly imagined world with wonderful characters. I shall be passing this to Diomedes but have no idea when he will get round to reading it, so if someone has a burning ambition to read it in the meantime, please don't hesitate to let us know - the poor boy has book reviews to do and his own stuff to write, so probably won't notice if this one goes missing for a month or two. Oh, and Diomedes is pretty bad at journaling, so am leaving it as 'to be read' on my shelf until he tells me what he wants me to write!
