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? 100,000 words, 6 illustrations, adverts and web-based special features section.… (més)

    Who's Afraid of Beowulf? de Tom Holt (Dr.Science)
    Dr.Science: The English author Tom Holt is relatively unknown in America, but very popular in England. If you enjoy Jasper Fforde or Christopher Moore you will most certainly enjoy Tom Holt's wry sense of English humor and the absurd. He has written a number of excellent books including Expecting Someone Taller, and Flying Dutch, but they may be difficult to find at your library or bookstore.… (més)

I've read this one for Shakespeare Cat as Hamlet has a spot in this literature laden adventure by time traveling Thursday Next. It was entertaining. There was so much going on, lots of literature characters make appearances. ( )
  Kristelh | Apr 16, 2022 |
The fourth novel in the series lives up to its predecessors high standards. Crazy, over the top, and wildly entertaining. With Shakespeare clones, a wandering Hamlet and the periodical reappearance of an eradicated husband. Of course Thursday also saves the world. ( )

Dear gods, the... handsaw, the hawk, the madness. I'm loving this series. ( )

Fforde continues to pitch high, wide, and fast.
afegit per Katya0133 | editaSchool Library Journal (Nov 1, 2004)
 
Sticking with this oddball novel is rewarding, and readers who share Fforde's love of literature and surreal sense of humor will enjoy this free fall through absurdity.
afegit per Katya0133 | editaPeople, Joe Heim (Aug 23, 2004)
 
With humorous illustrations and curious footnotes sprinkled throughout, Fforde's latest will have hardcore fans roaring.
afegit per Katya0133 | editaPublishers Weekly (Aug 16, 2004)
 
It's easy to be delighted by a writer who loves books so madly -- and who can imagine a Hamlet who roams the real world, declaring: ''That Freud fellow will have a bloody nose if ever I meet him.''
afegit per Katya0133 | editaThe New York Times, Janet Maslin (Aug 5, 2004)
 
[Fforde] is always charming company, and if he sometimes strays too far into fantasy, well, what's so great about reality?

The Minotaur had been causing trouble far in excess of his literary importance—first by escaping from the fantasy-genre prison book Sword of the Zenobians, then by leading us on a merry chase across most of fiction and thwarting all attempts to recapture him.
