10 journalers for this copy...
Thursday returns to Swindon with her son and Hamlet. Now she has to find a Shakespeare clone, get her husband back and make sure the Swindon Mallets win the Superhoop final...
I loved all the Thursday Next books. They are so full of ideas which makes them fun to read. I liked how some events in this book connected to some in the first book.
If you haven't read the first three installments yet, I recommend you read them before this one.
I just discovered I had another copy of this book and I'm going to turn it into a bookray.
But: Do I get the ending right, is this the last of the Thursday Next series? I really hope it's not!!!
Will go to the next station as soon as I receive the adress. Happy reading everybody!
WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Macht sich gerade per Post auf dem Weg zu Bluodzibluoda, viel Spaß beim Lesen!
Es muss noch ein bisschen warten, weil zuerst noch andere Ringe dran sind, aber ich bin ´mir nicht ganz sicher, dass es die nicht überholt...
Danke für's Schicken, Agrippine!
"Something Rotten" arrived today - Thursday's car on the cover is a real eyesore! Now I'll drop everything else and read this. Thanks for the book!
Thanks a lot for the book ring - and now the book will wait for Sheepseeker who is on holiday.
This may take a while since quite a number of books turned up here when I got back from my holidays... :)
I was really disappointed with part 3 of the Thursday Next-series but this one fully made up for it.
It had great new characters and - being a fan of Hamlet - enjoyed the overall theme. I'm not going into details since - unless jellycat wants me to do otherwise - I'm going to keep this Ray running if possible :)
Thanks for sharing the book, jellycat!
And on we go!
...und dann ab in die Wildnis oder so...
The book will now be moving on to SaschaBWk; jirika was busy and I received her PM only today. Sorry for skipping, jirika!
29.09.2006: Really hilarious! I felt a tiny bit let down by 'The well of Lost Plots' but with 'Something Rotten' Fforde is back to form. Loveable people and Dodos (I'm not sure if Alan is ment to be loved but i love him regardless), strange things happening all around, comedy, drama and tragedy in a great mix, I miss almost nothing. Only this: more of it.
I've already started reading it and it seems to be a lot better then "the well of lost plots".
But I'm disappointed with one issue: The end is too much of a happy end. Is this really the last episode of the Thursday Next series?
... on its way to Komma ...
The next participant is soleille, I send this bookring to her.
The characters are quite something (and I really loved what we learn about Granny Next!!!) and the main story is so hilarious only Fforde can do it without being ridiculous.
I love all the little things you come across in the Next novels (don't want to give too much away, find out for yourselves!)- my favourite in this book must be Eradications Anonymous and their meetings!
Hope I'll find some more readers for this ray to continue!
