Imagine this Great Britain in 1985 is close to being a police state The Crimean War has dragged on for than 130 years and Wales is self governing The only recognizable thing about this England is her citizens enduring love of literature And the Third Most Wanted criminal, Acheron Hades, is stealing characters from England s cherished literary heritage and holding them for ransom Bibliophiles will be enchanted, but not surprised, to learn that stealing a character from a book only changes that one book, but Hades has escalated his thievery He has begun attacking the original manuscripts, thus changing all copies in print and enraging the reading public That s why Special Operations Network has a Literary Division, and it is why one of its operatives, Thursday Next, is on the case. Thursday is utterly delightful She is vulnerable, smart, and, above all, literate She has been trying to trace Hades ever since he stole Mr Quaverley from the original manuscript of Martin Chuzzlewit and killed him You will only remember Mr Quaverley if you read Martin Chuzzlewit prior to 1985 But now Hades has set his sights on one of the plums of literature, Jane Eyre, and he must be stopped. How Thursday achieves this and manages to preserve one of the great books of the Western canon makes for delightfully hilarious reading You do not have to be an English major to be pulled into this story You ll be rooting for Thursday, Jane, Mr Rochester and a familiar ending Otto PenzlerHSurreal and hilariously funny, this alternate history, the debut novel of British author Fforde, will appeal to lovers of zany genre work think Douglas Adams and lovers of classic literature alike The scene Great Britain circa 1985, but a Great Britain where literature has a prominent place in everyday life For pennies, corner Will Speak machines will quote Shakespeare Richard III is performed with audience participation la Rocky Horror and children swap Henry Fielding bubble gum cards In this world where high lit matters, Special Operative Thursday Next literary detective seeks to retrieve the stolen manuscript of Dickens s Martin Chuzzlewit The evil Acheron Hades has plans for it after kidnapping Next s mad scientist uncle, Mycroft, and commandeering Mycroft s invention, the Prose Portal, which enables people to cross into a literary text, he sends a minion into Chuzzlewit to seize and kill a minor character, thus forever changing the novel Worse is to come When the manuscript of Jane Eyre, Next s favorite novel, disappears, and Jane herself is spirited out of the book, Next must pursue Hades inside Charlotte Bront s masterpiece The plethora of oddly named characters can be confusing, and the story s episodic nature means that the action moves forward in fits and starts The cartoonish characters are either all good or all bad, but the villain s comeuppance is still satisfying Witty and clever, this literate romp heralds a fun new series set in a wonderfully original world Jan 28 Forecast With a six city author tour, a well conceived Web site at www.thursdaynext.com and crossover appeal to Bront fans, this is likely to attract attention than the usual first genre novel.Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information, Inc.
