Description
The Bookworld's leading enforcement officer, Thursday Next, was forced into semi-retirement following the assassination attempt in her previous outing, One of Our Thursdays Is Missing. Still, when her former SpecOps division is re-instated, in this seventh book of Jasper Fforde's wildly surreal and blisteringly literary thriller series, Thursday assumes she's the obvious choice to lead the Literary Detectives. But our banged-up heroine is no spring chicken, and her old boss has a cushier job in mind for her: chief librarian of the Swindon All-You-Can-Eat at Fatso's Drink Not Included Library. Then there are Thursday's children, Friday, Tuesday, and the fictional Jenny (who seems maddeningly real to Thursday), who seem to have inherited her knack for trouble.

"As always, Fforde makes this wacky world perfectly plausible, elucidating Ffordian physics with just the right ratio of pseudoscientific jargon to punch lines. It's a dazzling, heady brew of high concept and low humor, absurd antics with a tea-and-toast sensibility that will appeal to fans of Douglas Adams and P.G. Wodehouse alike. Fforde is ffantastic."Booklist (starred review)

"Jasper Fforde fans, rejoice! The Woman Who Died a Lot, the seventh installment in his Thursday Next series, delivers all the imagination, complexity and laughs we've come to expect from Fforde and his book-hopping, butt-kicking heroine ... [and] brings together the charming lunacy and intricate plotting that have enthralled Fforde's readers over the years."Shelf Awareness
