Fourteen years have passed since we last dropped in on Thursday, and not much has changed--except her son Friday has grown into a teenage pill.

    Wer hat Angst vor Beowulf? Roman. ( Fantasy). von Tom Holt (Dr.Science)
    Dr.Science: The English author Tom Holt is relatively unknown in America, but very popular in England. If you enjoy Jasper Fforde or Christopher Moore you will most certainly enjoy Tom Holt's wry sense of English humor and the absurd. He has written a number of excellent books including Expecting Someone Taller, and Flying Dutch, but they may be difficult to find at your library or bookstore.… (mehr)

Consistently good series. Consistently inventive series. And I suspect a rather excellent exposition on descent into madness. ( )

I think that at book five in this series, Fforde is running a little low on novel elaborations of the theme and on targets for satire. He broadens the scope here, from the plot—the (real) UK government tries to unload a stupidity surplus—to the book- and time-travel concepts—Fforde goes meta! I found it fun, if occasionally confused and inane. The plot isn't very cohesive. Perhaps Fforde's first idea ran flat, so he had to add in another plot line. ( )

Fourteen years have passed since the last book, and Thursday Next now has a teenage son, now works for a carpet company and has a side income smuggling cheese in from Wales. But all is not right in the world of books. reading rates are falling, Sherlock Holmes has and others have been killed, and they start to think that there is a serial killer loose in bookworld.

On top of that the Goliath corporation is trying to muscle in on travel to bookworld. The carpet company is a front for the real works of Spec-Ops, now working undercover, and Thursday is thrust back into the action by having to train two clones of herself and find the serial killer who wishes to stop all book series. And the icing the the cake is her son, Friday, keeps coming back in time to her to ensure that he joins Chronoguard, the time travelling organisation, who need him to join to enable him to invent time travel.

Much preferred this one to the previous book in the series. I like the way that Fforde gets the main character to flip between the real world and the bookworld. The plot is good too, with a nice amount of twists and turns, as Thursday tracks the serial killer and tries to hold family life together whilst training her clones. The literary references abound, and Fforde takes great pleasure in taking a very different perspective on the normal story line. Nearer 3.5 stars, and I think that reading this series has been worthwhile so far. ( )

The fifth book (The Great Samuel Pepys Fiasco) does not exist. Preceded by The Eyre Affair, Lost in a Good Book, The Well of Lost Plots, Something Rotten, [The Great Samuel Pepys Fiasco]. ( )

Jasper Fford’s Thursday Next novels offer literary-themed humor set in a fascinatingly odd world that’s part fantasy, part steampunk, and wholly fun. First Among Sequels invites readers to examine television’s threat to reading (also diet and exercise), with a complicated mystery of who’s doing what to books and the book universe. The time is pretty close to the present day. Bookworld is under threat. Short attention spans might destroy even Jane Austen. And Thursday next will need to save her family, her job, our literary heritage, and the day. It’s very English, a great blend of relaxing and compelling, and delightfully literary as well as being perfectly up to date. A great series for book-readers and their kin.

Disclosure: I’ve been collecting these every time I visit England, and I was thrilled to find them available here. This one’s slightly more confusing than the others, but maybe I’m just getting older and more easily confused. ( )

By the time we reach the fifth volume, First Among Sequels, Fforde has firmly regained his footing, and the plot moves along like a well-turned simile.

First Among Sequels is for adults who want sophisticated wit with their fantasy, but who still possess an appreciation for the intricate worldbuilding of a well-imagined children’s novel.
hinzugefügt von Katya0133 | bearbeitenNew Statesman, Jean Edelstein (Aug 13, 2007)
 
While Fforde's humor can be affecting, it can also grate with its self-consciousness, as the author nudges readers to admire his verbal dexterity.
hinzugefügt von Katya0133 | bearbeitenKirkus (Jul 23, 2007)
 
It's an ingenious premise that makes for a thrill ride of a read. And it's not entirely necessary — though perhaps more fun — to read the books in the proper order. Fforde gives enough background in "Thursday Next" to inform readers of all they need to know to find both books hilarious, exhilarating and just a bit exhausting.

Fans of satiric literary humor are in for a treat.
