    One of Our Thursdays Is Missing By Jasper Fforde


    I have a confession I read this half hoping to hate it so I could make some space on the physical library shelves Alas, there is no way I could consign it to the narrative doldrums of the suburbs The reading references are too clever, the mystery too intriguing and the character building too well done Don t tell Friday, but I think I might have to toss Something Rotten instead.I haven t read Thursday Next in about ten years, so I wasn t sure how confused I d be I remember a lingering sense of en [...]

    Dear Jasper Fforde Please stop being awesome It s hard to have a favorite author who when people ask you What s the book about you have to go into a 10 minute explination of how this is book 6 of a series and there s people that travel between books, and there s The Bookworld and there s Spec Ops and on and on and then they look at you oddly and then leave If your books weren t so awesome I wouldn t be so awkward, but I feel I have to share, because they re awesome I am seriously, literally awed [...]

    It s been a while since I started the Thursday Next series, and the other books in the series weren t that fresh in my mind, so I was a little overwhelmed by references to ideas and events introduced in previous books Plus, this work was a little slow to get established for me because I wasn t ready for our main character to be, perhaps, a different character than the other Thursday novels My final minor gripe with this book, which I nevertheless enjoyed, is what seems to be an overwhelming amou [...]

    I really enjoy Jasper Fforde s romps through BookWorld Call me a book nerd, but I just really enjoy it The Thursday Next series is awesome, and this book is no exception It s set from the point of view of the Written Thursday Next, who is trying to find the RealWorld Thursday Next Some quotes that entertain my dorky, readerly sense of humor p 4 I opened the door to find three Dostogerskivites staring at me from within a dense cloud of moral relativism p 7 Not many people traveled to the RealWorl [...]

    rubs handies together haha there is a map of Fiction Island at the front.This book has been bundled with SPECIAL FEATURES including The Making of wordamentary, deleted scenes, alternative endings and much .So this is how it startsThe BookWorld RemadeEveryone remembers where they were when the BookWorld was remade I was at home resting between readings , which is a polite euphemism for almost remaindered d this is how it ends Humans, said Sprockett, are the most gloriously bizarre creatures Yes, [...]

    How often does a popular series switch out the protagonist in Book 6 I can t think of another example Jasper Fforde is a very clever, imaginative, witty and playful writer Books 1 3 in this Thursday Next series are brilliant Book 4 was very good, but not quite as sparkling Book 5, the last in the series before this, was the weakest by a considerable margin It felt flatter than what had gone before Has he lost it I worried Does this mark the beginning of the end I fretted.Then came his marvellous [...]

    Oh, I just loved this book From beginning to its very wonderful end.I m in love with Jasper Fforde He s got a brilliant imagination and he s hilarious, so wickedly funny At first I was puzzled and missed the real Thursday and the real Pickwick, but I quickly got on board with this romp I ended up loving the written Thursday and I loved Sprockett, her butler I got reminded of the previous books as I read, especially in the little blurbs that start each chapter.A fun and clever book A great comfor [...]

    The thing I like best about this one, apart from the witty references to current concepts like FanFic and Harry Potter, is that we get to start at the beginning and watch our dear Thursday find herself all over again The written Thursday lives in the shadow of the real Thursday, a woman of worldwide fame in both real and book worlds She starts off rather timid and by the end has learned to trust herself Sprockett the clockwork Jeeves is a wonderful character And the mimefield is absolutely terri [...]

    Meine etwas kuriose Fforde Theorie, dass die geraden B nde besser w ren, hat sich erneut best tigt Teil 6 ist wieder grandios sowohl von den Ideen als auch vom zusammenh ngenden spannenden grossartigen Plot Die echte Thursdaynext ist verschwunden und die geschriebene Romanfigur Thursday bestreitet die Handlung Dieser Band fackelt wieder mal ein wundervolles Ideenfeuerwerk ab, ein paar davon muss ich einfach spoilern Die geografische Neugestaltung der Buchwelt hat viele Reize und birgt sensatione [...]

    I could say this is a return to form for Fforde because I haven t enjoyed a book of his this much since Something Rotten I disliked First Amongst Sequels and felt lukewarm about the two books in the Nursery Crime series but this book is a lot different than the other books in the Thursday Next series It may be the most metafictional commercial fiction book ever written The other books in the series seemed like they were written for those who were big readers, but this one also feels like a write [...]

    As you can tell I am not reading this series in order I read the first book, to see what it was like and enjoyed it because of the literary references Then when my coworker, Doug B he s the one who introduced me to this series , told me I should read this one next, and that I could borrow it from him, I didn t hesitate.To be perfectly honest, it took me a while to figure out what the heck was going on, but once I understood, I enjoyed the book, as it was very meta and a bit bizarre, two things I [...]

    Book 6 in the Thursday Next series Do not read without reading the previous books, this is definitely NOT a stand alone.With each Thursday Next book I m falling harder and harder Fforde has intricately crafted a deep and complex world here Thursday Next a woman with the power to travel into books, and bring characters from books out into the real world is an amazing heroine.I admire Thursday Next very much A strong, older in this book she s in her mid 50s , smart, kick ass, world weary, happily [...]

    I m torn as to how to review this latest Jasper Fforde entry I ve enjoyed all of the Thursday Next series, from The Eyre Affair onward, mostly because they ve made me laugh and they ve rewarded me for having a nimble mind and a knowledge of history and culture After the last book, which seemed to neatly tie everything up, I was wondering what Fforde had in mind to keep the story fresh Well, he has a nice twist, but it almost feels like a different series Instead of focusing on Thursday and the g [...]

    The written Thursday Next has a lot to handle Since the destruction of Thursday1 4, Thursday5 has become the only written Thursday Next with five books falling to her She views it her duty to due justice by the real Thursday Next, which none of her fellow book characters like Under the regime of the previous Thursday they were allowed to run whatever scams and deals they felt like, secure in the knowledge of a strong reader base due to the amounts of sex and violence That reader base is gone The [...]

    Original post at One More PageI was planning to put off reading Jasper Fforde s latest Thursday Next book until I found the time to reread the first five books It s been years since I last read any of them, so I thought I d appreciate reading this latest one better if I read the first ones again Never mind that there are five of them and it would take significant time off my real TBR But then I got sick a few weeks before I had to fly to Europe, which got me worried about all kinds of things esp [...]

    Jasper Fforde is a man after my own heart Firstly, he loves books That s clear in the non stop literary references that joyously abound in his novel One of Our Thursdays is Missing Secondly, he has a warped sense of humor, one that I appreciate If you love British humor like Monty Python, you will undoubtedly enjoy Fforde Keep in mind, OOOTIM is part of a series 7, I believe , one that I have not read prior to this one, and while the world he creates is an elaborate one, and the characters all h [...]

    As in the rest of the series, the latest volume in the Thursday Next oeuvre is fast moving, hysterically funny, and amazingly clever, but this time it s also surprisingly moving The fictional Thursday Next from the previous sequel is the lead, and in her struggles to save the intrepid real world Thursday Next by trying to figure out what her real world self would do, the fictional Thursday Next is oddly sympathetic than her living, breathing counterpart One of Our Thursdays is Missing is set al [...]

    After five books in a series, readers may find themselves getting tired of the series protagonist I remember that in later books in the Harry Potter series I began to find him annoying And often in long running mystery series I need to take a break for a while from the character before returning At the same time, however, I still care about the character and do want to know I m just saturated.Jasper Fforde, being the brilliant man that he is, solves this problem in his sixth Thursday Next book [...]

    Jasper Fforde has been on my to read list forever I haven t read any of the others in the series, but my dad got me this as a gift, so I m giving it a shot.Sometimes a little too clever for its own good, but a fun and unique read Favorite passages For all its boundless color, depth, boldness, passion and humor, the RealWorld doesn t appear to have any clearly discernable function Not that better minds than ours haven t tried to find one The jury had been out on this matter for some time Some fel [...]

    It is always nice to be back in the world of Thursday Next It has been such a long time 4 years since the last installment of the series that I couldn t remember much about First Among Sequels I went online to refresh myself, but I still felt a bit out of the loop Fortunately I had reread the first three books in the past year or so pure pleasure , and that helped Although this book doesn t refer back to the earlier plots as much as I feared, I would never recommend reading this without having r [...]

    A satirical look at the fictional characters within the BookWorld, with the main protagonist played by none other than Thursday Next s own fictional character Thursday Next Naturally.Always hilarious, smart and daring and this time, with a touch of psychological thriller the subgenre which just so happens to harbor the real Thursday Next And like Something Rotten, Fforde manages to somehow touch your heart, between your maniacal fits of laughter, as the written Thursday wishes so much to be real [...]

    I ve said before that the only reason Jasper Fforde can write like he does, is that his brain is made of cookies There is no other explanation for crazy, delicious stuff that comes out of that mind This installment of the TN series was a slight departure from his last five, as the real Thursday Next barely makes an appearance Instead, it s her written counterpart, who must figure out where the real TN has disappeared to Take that plotline and crash into it with a complete remaking of the BookWor [...]

    OK I am a Fforde fan as opposed to a Ford van which is just silly and I m not sure why I wrote that could be the large glass of red wine I suppose Anyhoo, this latest Thursday Next epistle is good and packed to the rafters with literary references puns and allusions I found it to be a little smug than previous episodes and I m not sure how much farther the series can go without a fairly radical influx of new ideas characters I wasn t as gripped by this one as those that have gone before and it [...]

    Let s start by saying this who knew reading could be so complex From the beginning chapters, and really the title and spoiler blurb on the back of the book, we find out that Thursday Next is missing However due to the books she s written there is a Thursday who can take her place until she is found This instantly changes the tone of the book as the new Thursday takes over as narrative voice Despite looking like the Real Thursday, her written counterpart has a much different personality, and this [...]

    If you haven t read any of Fforde s Thursday Next books, you might not be as big a fan as I am of this book But then I ve read them all and think Fforde is a genius His ability to play with literary convention, throwing in allusions to every genre of fiction and the state of the publishing world is amazing This book takes place mostly in BookWorld, the place where all the characters of everything ever written live between readings BookWorld is divided into countries based on genre In this story [...]

    We love the word play and literary jokes in this series, so always read them out loud In this one Thursday Next, the protagonist, runs into a mime field, for example, where she has to laugh and applaud or the mimes start getting aggressive However, this installment was pretty slow going It took at least half the book to set up the plot, and it was too full of meta explanations about the Bookworld and its functions and politics There was lots of running around from genre to genre which seemed mos [...]

    I have yet to be disappointed in the Thursday Next books, and this one One of Our Thursdays is Missing has an excellent map of Fiction Island.In all the Thursday Next books, Fforde does an excellent job with literary references and silliness what an imagination , and I really like how Fforde weaves real issues into all the fun I won t spoil it by giving away plot details, so go ahead and join the metafiction party You will have an uproariously good time When a book club edition of War and Peace [...]

    I like the Thursday Next world, and had high hopes for this book, but it reads like a pale copy of the earlier ones and considering it focuses on the character Thursday Next and not the real one, perhaps that was the intended effect There are lots of colorful characters and settings BookWorld converted into an Escher sphere and A Clockwork Butler stand out The mysterious plot isn t solved until the end This book was in places a chore to read, and must have been a chore to write, lending further [...]

    I was a bit lukewarm towards the last title in the series 5 , but this was turned things around for me because a it takes place entirely in BookWorld so it s full of puns and literary allusions and all that good meta fictional stuff I love about the first book and b it features the written Thursday Next instead of the real one so that you have less of that moodiness and kick assery and of a protagonist who has weaknesses and such It s both and less painful and and less awesome and hearkens ba [...]

    Disclosure ARC edition received via First Reads giveaway.The BookWorld has been remade and tensions between Racy Novel and Women s Fiction could lead to all out war Detective Thursday Next is supposed to take part in the scheduled peace talk just one problem Thursday Next is missing It s now up to the written Thursday Next who is having problems in her own series of novels to take Thursday s place and find out what happened to the real Thursday before war breaks out in BookWorld.Prior to ONE OF [...]
