Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "did I miss a book?"

    felt like I was missing something the whole way through, but it did resolve in the end. As with the previous couple of books, I did find some of the voices a little distracting, but some of the accent were also pretty good!
    Now where's the next one?!

    Story
    "Fforde as good as ever."
    If you could sum up First Among Sequels in three words, what would they be?

    I could not ...


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I preferred the previous narrator - Gabrielle Kruger. Ms Gray's reading lacked the character, both of Thursday as narrator, and of the other characters


    Any additional comments?

    I was surprised to realise that the reader appeared to be using an American text - frequent use of 'gotten' where my edition uses the English form of 'got'. This might not matter - but I am intrigued to know if there are any other changes.
