Title: One of Our Thursdays Is Missing
Author: Jasper Fforde
File Type: Mobi
Description:From Publishers WeeklyWith the real Thursday Next missing, the written Thursday Next leaves her book to undertake an assignment for the Jurisfiction Accident Investigation Department, in Fforde's wild and wacky sixth BookWorld novel (after Thursday Next: First Among Sequels). As written Thursday Next finds herself playing roles intended for her real counterpart, BookWorld's elite try to deal with a border dispute between Racy Novel and Women's Fiction. It's not always possible to know where one is in BookWorld, which has been drastically remade, or in Fforde's book, which shares the madcap makeup of Alice in Wonderland, even borrowing Alice's dodo. Outrageous puns (e.g., a restaurant called Inn Uendo) and clever observations relating to the real book world (e.g., the inhabitants of Vanity island now prefer Self-Published or Collaborative) abound. Fforde's diabolical meshing of insight and humor makes a mimefield both frightening and funny, while the reader must traverse a volume that's a minefield of unexpected and amusing twists. 10-city author tour.

A trip up the mighty Metaphoric River beckons-a trip that will reveal a fiendish plot that threatens the very fabric of the BookWorld itself.
