"With tracks every 3 minutes for easy book marking"--Container.
Narrated by Emily Gray.
The threat of all-out Genre war looms over BookWorld. But with the real Thursday Next retired in the real world, the Council of Genres has no other choice than to tap the fictional Thursday to save the day. Her mission as emissary is to prevent the brewing war--but her task is made more difficult by a hidden foe manipulating events.
Reviews & Summaries
Because the "real" Thursday lives in a science fiction version of England, readers get to hear about scientists' cloning neanderthals, dodos and wooly mammoths, along with all the other interesting items that make Fforde's written universes so interesting.
Like many of the Thursday Next novels, this one has numerous references to literature, including Charles Dickens' novels. This is fun for those who majored in literature or English and like to feel good about their degrees.
The quality of the series deteriorates with each novel, yet I still enjoyed them and read the entire set.
