    It's been 14 years since Thursday pegged out at the 1988 SuperHoop, and Friday is now a difficult 16-year-old. However, Thursday's got bigger problems. Sherlock Holmes is killed, and his series is stopped in its tracks. And before this can be corrected, Miss Marple dies suddenly in a car accident, bringing her series to a close as well. When Thursday receives a death threat clearly intended for her written self, she realizes what's going on: there is a serial killer on the loose in the Bookworld.

    Its amazing that an entire series can be written about the power of British pluck. Anything could happen in these stories. No device needs to be supported by the rest of the story as long as the main character has her tea at regular intervals.
    This series is not bad, and its not very good either, and inexplicably, I have read every single book in the series and am looking forward to more. how could I possibly rate this without missleading a little.

    Great Britain, circa 1985: time travel is routine, and literature is taken very, very seriously. England is a virtual police state where an aunt can get lost (literally) in a Wordsworth poem and forging Byronic verse is a punishable offense. All this is business as usual for Thursday Next, Special Operative in literary detection. But when someone begins kidnapping characters from works of literature and plucks Jane Eyre from the pages of Bronte's novel, Thursday is faced with the challenge of her career.

    "surprize!"
    Overall

    I was surprized at how much I liked this. It was fun and sweet and at times believably scary. If you have a hard time with ridiculous and far fetched story lines this book is not for you, but I found that the more ridiculous and absurd it got the more I enjoyed myself. The best part is that there is more to the story in the other books. I am really looking forward to them!
