Library Languishers Series #4


GR Synopsis

Jasper Fforde has done it again in this genre-bending blend of crime fiction, fantasy, and top-drawer literary entertainment. After two rollicking New York Times bestselling adventures through Western literature, resourceful literary detective Thursday Next definitely needs some downtime. And what better place for a respite than in the hidden depths of the Well of Lost Plots, where all unpublished books reside? But peace and quiet remain elusive for Thursday, who soon discovers that the Well is a veritable linguistic free-for-all, where grammasites run rampant, plot devices are hawked on the black market, and lousy books—like the one she has taken up residence in—are scrapped for salvage. To make matters worse, a murderer is stalking the personnel of Jurisfiction and it’s up to Thursday to save the day. A brilliant feat of literary showmanship filled with wit, fantasy, and effervescent originality, this Ffordian tour de force is the most exciting Thursday Next adventure yet.

My Comments

Technically, this isn’t a library languisher since I have already read it but whatever. I just bought it and feel like showing it off. This series is full of quirky characters that I love reading about. The dodo, Pickwick, is my favorite!
The Library Languishers Series features a book that languishes in my physical library. The picture quality will always be sucky. Depend on it!

    I must admit that I didn’t like the sequels to The Eyre Affair much (except for Something Rotten), but I keep reading the series purely for Pickwick. 😀

      I agree! When did they start losing some of their sparkle?

        I think I was disappointed with book #2, so skipped #3. Book 4# was great! Book #5 just did nothing for me. I’m hesitant to pick up book #6 but I want to read more about Pickwick, so will have to get around to it eventually.

        What about you?

        I have yet to read book 4 and onwards. The way I like and dislike the books in this series reminds me of the witty cartoon, Sheep in the Big City. Did you ever catch an episode?

    I am a Thursday Next super fan! I’ve read them all and this is my all-time favorite series ever. I hope Fforde writes a new one soon.

      If I remember correctly, the last one has yet to come. I like spacing them out because I enjoy them more that way!
