Besprekingen

Another great book by Jasper. Imaginative, witty, surprising etcetera... Presented as a youth book it's well digested by adults

Something different to the Thursday next novels and the nursery crimes. Quit elaborate work, I'm looking forward to the next part

The written Thursday is the big hero in this one. Some new intriguing views on fantasy or reality. Jasper keeps surprising me and so I'm already waiting for the next Thursday story

Weer een fantasierijk verhaal van Japer Fforde, hoewel de Thursday Next cyclus leuker is, is ook dit aangenaam leesvoer en niet in het minst door DS Mary Mary die een hoog Thursday gehalte heeft. De apotheose van dit boek zou zonder meer een spectaculaire verfilming opleveren, dus wachten op een ontrdekking door de filmwereld.
