Another delightful turn in the series, Fforde deftly creates a fantastic world that is an absolute delight. While at some points it did feel as though the plot were meandering a bit and Fforde was simply showing off his fantasy world, it's a great world to show off and I didn't really mind. Of course, the plot also builds to an impressive crescendo that rattles on to a satisfying conclusion.

Thursday Next is back! In the third outing, Fforde has provided us with a deeper glimse into a world filled with books and book lovers. This time, Thursday is hiding out in the Well of Lost Plots (WOLP) in order to finish her apprenticeship with Miss Havisham. The usual hilarious mayhem is woven in tightly with a nefarious villain, and a few murders. There is also a foray into Wuthering Heights for some much needed counselling in anger management, training on how to feed the Minotaur, and the championing of the striking Nursery Characters. Fforde''s book world is so real you will be wishing you could live there permanently, maybe even winning the coveted Bookie prize for most avid reader!

Thursday Next (who's from an alternate version of our world) is hiding out in Bookworld in a pulp novel called Caversham Heights, where she's training to become a Jurisfiction Agent. The introduction of a new book system called UltraWord(TM) is nearing; it should spell the end of misspellings and the need to attribute speech to characters, among other things. But could it also be the reason why someone is bumping off Jurisfiction agents? At the same time, Thursday's old nemesis, Aornis is eating away at her memories.

"Who is the star of this novel? Who do the readers expect to see when they pick up this book? Me. Who has won "Most Troubled Romantic Lead" a the BookWorld Awards seventy-seven times in a row? Me. All me. Without me, (Wuthering) Heights is a tediously overlong provincial potboiler of insignificant interest. " - Heathcliff on his role in the book, during a rage councelling session
