'The complexity of the plotting is le Carre-like in its ingenuity; the back-story detailing is Dickensian both in its vividness and in its depth; Umberto Eco would recognise an erudition that challenges his own (and far surpasses that of the hugely-overrated Dan Brown), and Orwell would have been proud of the persuasiveness of the depictions of the evil influence of multinational conglomerates, as exemplified by the Goliath Corporation, and of the inescapable misery and squalor of totalitarian communism as evinced by the Socialist Republic of Wales (national motto: "Not Always Raining"). One has to consider Jasper Fforde in the context of his predecessors in surreal comic fantasy - Lewis Carroll, Thorne Smith, the Goons, the Monty Python team, Douglas Adams, Robert Rankin, Terry Pratchett and the rest - and in many ways he not only matches their genius, but actually transcends it.' * <i>War Correspondent - the Journal of the Crimean War Research Society</i> * Phew...Jasper Fforde has done it again...the author has now written a sparkling, stimulating and downright hilarious series...Jasper Fforde is a true original, as are the people who populate his world. * <i>Herts & Essex Observer * The best yet, which is quite remarkable considering how good the others were. * <i>Sunday Express</i> * Very clever, very imaginative and very funny * Daily Express * 'a wild rush of outrageous notions and silly jokes and leaves you feeling pleasantly tipsy' - People Magazine Jasper Fforde has gone where no fictioneer has gone before.
