Publisher's Summary

Leaving Swindon behind her to hide out in the Well of Lost Plots (the place where all fiction is created), Thursday Next, Literary Detective and soon-to-be one parent family, ponders her next move from within an unpublished book of dubious merit entitled 'Caversham Heights'.
Landen, her husband, is still eradicated, Aornis Hades is meddling with Thursday's memory, and Miss Havisham - when not sewing up plot-holes in 'Mill on the Floss' - is trying to break the land-speed record on the A409.
But something is rotten in the state of Jurisfiction. Perkins is 'accidentally' eaten by the minotaur, and Snell succumbs to the Mispeling Vyrus. As a shadow looms over popular fiction, Thursday must keep her wits about her and discover not only what is going on, but also who she can trust to tell about it...
With grammasites, holesmiths, trainee characters, pagerunners, baby dodos and an adopted home scheduled for demolition, 'The Well of Lost Plots' is at once an addictively exciting adventure and an insight into how books are made, who makes them - and why there is no singular for 'scampi'.
Please note: Chapter 13 has been intentionally omitted from this title.

Swindon is in Wiltshire not Wessex. I thought authors were supposed to research these things. THIS IS A VERY BASIC MISTAKE. HOW COULD THE AUTHOR GET THIS WRONG

Great book

You can really tell Jasper Fforde is getting into his stride with this novel. The regular characters are well rounded and the new characters are given plenty of scope to stretch their legs. It moves at a great pace, taking it's time where it needs to so that when the finale is upon us it's all very nicely set up and goes full speed ahead.

Really love the reading by Gabrielle Kruger, she has Thursday's voice down to a 't' and her voices for the other characters are excellent.

If you want something that's grounded in books but completely off the wall then I recommend this series.
