Throwback Thursday #49 - One Of Our Thursdays Is Missing

This is a great feature that Melissa at My words and pictures has been doing for a while and I wanted to jump on board! There are plenty of books out there I desperately want...

But what about all those wonderful books that are ALREADY on my shelves?
One of Our Thursdays Is Missing - Jasper Fforde
It is a time of unrest in the BookWorld.
Only the diplomatic skills of ace literary detective Thursday Next can avert a devastating genre war. But a week before the peace talks, Thursday vanishes. Has she simply returned home to the RealWorld or is this something more sinister?
All is not yet lost. Living at the quiet end of speculative fiction is the written Thursday Next, eager to prove herself worthy of her illustrious namesake.
The fictional Thursday is soon hot on the trail of her factual alter-ego, and quickly stumbles upon a plot so fiendish that it threatens the very BookWorld itself.
I adored Jasper Fforde's writing. Just love the inventiveness and Britishness of it. Any reader will just adore the word play and cleverness of this series where Thursday spends time jumping into books and interacting with the characters. I've had this book nearly a year now (the hardback version - one of the few authors I collect the hardback versions!) - and I need to read it soon! The next book in the series is released soon! :)
And don't forget next week will be my second - What Shall I Read? Throwback Thursday poll and giveaway!


  1. Fforde is so weird, and I read it out of order! Which made it even weirder

  3. This author sounds like so amazing, and fun to read. :) I do hope you get to this and enjoy it!

  4. Jasper FFfore is a fantastic author! Melissa, I thhoroughly recommend giving his books a try! I hope you manage to read the book soon Mel, I'm sure you'll love it!
