Beschreibung

Fourteen years after her last adventure, Thursday Next, literary detective, finds herself in an unusual situation her job policing the fictional characters of the BookWorld has been downgraded since her previous escapades are now themselves in print.
However, a pressing threat may call her back into action: first Sherlock Holmes and then Miss Marple are found dead, stopping their series in their tracks. When Thursdays written self also receives a death threat, it becomes clear that a serial killer is on the loose.
Meanwhile, the Goliath Corporation plan on taking literary tourists on holiday in the novels of Jane Austen. Thursday alone realizes the true intent of Goliaths unwanted incursions into fiction, but she can’t fight all these battles on her own. She must team up with the one person she can’t really get along with: the written Thursday Next.

Why is there a chapter missing??

Would have been much better if the chapter with the moral dilemma had not been omitted. As it is, one part of the story does not make sense.

it took some time...

...to get into the story. Thursday suddenly being 52, and 14 years have passed since the last book was something I found quite hard to get used to.
But once I finally did, I started to like the story, even if I still imagined Thursday being in her late thirties. Still a good and entertaining book, but not "yeah, gorgeous, I LOVE it"-good. Nevertheless I didn't like the multiple Thursdays and Fridays in general (there were some amazingly good scenes though), it was quite a job to keep them sorted.

Again, Emily Gray did a wonderful job.
