Five stars for the content. Buy these books. Read them. Re-read them, and tell your friends about them. But be skeptical of Amazon's pricing and do the math before you buy.
Yes, that is the world of Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next, an eccentric alternate world that operates entirely on its own hilarious rules. "A Thursday Next Digital Collection: Novels 1-5" brings together the first four-book cycle of Thursday's adventures, as well as the timeskip sequel "First Among Sequels." The one real downside: the excessive pricing. Why is it so expensive when the individual kindle books are cheaper?!
"The Eyre Affair" introduces Thursday, who works for a special division dedicated to protecting literature, and is currently on the trail of the malevolent Acheron Hades. First Hades kills a minor character from "Martin Chuzzlewit," and then kidnaps Jane Eyre (in this parallel universe, the novel has a very different ending). Thursday Next teams up with the brooding Rochester and an odd bunch of characters to save Jane -- and all the other great works of literature.
"Lost In A Good Book" sees Thursday being oppressed by the publicity of the previous book -- her consolations are her new husband Landen, her dodo Pickwick, and the fact that she's going to be a mum. But then time twists, which (her dad tells her) might turn the whole world into goo. And even worse, Thursday returns home to find that her beloved husband has been dead since the age of two...
"The Well of Lost Plots" is where an exiled Thursday is currently living, waiting for the birth of her baby.Read more ›
