Summary

It is a time of unrest in the BookWorld. Only the diplomatic skills of ace literary detective Thursday Next can avert a devastating genre war. But a week before the peace talks, Thursday vanishes. Has she simply returned home to the RealWorld or is this something more sinister? All is not yet lost. Living at the quiet end of speculative fiction is the written Thursday Next, eager to prove herself worthy of her illustrious namesake. The fictional Thursday is soon hot on the trail of her factual alter-ego, and quickly stumbles upon a plot so fiendish that it threatens the very BookWorld itself.

Please note: Chapter 13 has been intentionally omitted from this title.

Don't make this one your first Thurs Next book!

My least favourite in the series so far, but really glad that Gabrielle Kruger returned to narrating them.

Worth a listen but not many more

I would like to start with i did enjoy this book. But you need to be able to pay attention to all the information given to you about the written world. I like to listen while doing my cleaning but found this one hard to keep track of the writers descriptions. Not sure if would listen to it again, but would probably find it easier the second time round and more enjoyable.
