Journal Entry 1 by gingergeoff from Swindon, Wiltshire United Kingdom on Friday, July 22, 2011
Thursday Next, Head of JurisFiction and ex-SpecOps agent, returns to her native Swindon accompanied by a child of two, a pair of dodos and Hamlet, who is on a fact-finding mission in the real world. Thursday has been despatched to capture escaped Fictioneer Yorrick Kaine but even so, now seems as good a time as any to retrieve her husband Landen from his state of eradication at the hands of the Chronoguard.

It's not going to be easy. Thursday's former colleagues at the department of Literary Detectives want her to investigate a spate of cloned Shakespeares, the Goliath Corporation are planning to switch to a new Faith based corporate management system and the Neanderthals feel she might be the Chosen One who will lead them to genetic self-determination.

With help from Hamlet, her uncle and time-travelling father, Thursday faces the toughest adventure of her career. Where is the missing President-for-life George Formby? Why is it imperative for the Swindon Mallets to win the World Croquet League final? And why is it so difficult to find reliable childcare?

I love Thursday Next! It was good to be back in the real world for this one. However I do find myself slowing pronouncing everyone’s names in case I miss something and I sure I must have – I had to have Laden Parke-Laine explained to me. Whilst reading this I also read some other reviews and because worried when people were saying they began to lose interest in the Thursday Next series because it’s just the same situations over and over again and it became repetitive. I need not have worried I didn’t this so and the twist near the end took me by surprise. In fact I was really quite weepy by the end. Something I did not expect at all.
