Something Rotten by Jasper Fforde

| /

Literary detective Thursday Next is on a mission - and it's not just a mission to save the planet. If only life were that simple...

Unemployed following an international cheese-smuggling scandal, our favourite cultural crime-fighter is faced with a world of problems: Hamlet's not attending his conflict resolution classes, President George Formby is facing a coup led by dastardly Yorrick Kaine and, what's more, the evil Goliath Corportation are refusing to un-eradicate Thursday's husband, Landen.

Will she ever see Landen again? Is shopping the new religion? Can Thursday prevent Armageddon? And who will babysit her son while she does it?

Join Thursday on her toughest assignment yet, and enter a world where fiction is always much stranger than the truth...
