One of Our Thursdays Is Missing by Jasper Fforde
In One of Our Thursdays Is Missing, BookWorld has been remade. All of its books have been moved from a central library to hundreds of categorical islands. On the Fiction island, genre wars threaten to break out. Just before peace talks begin, the RealWorld Thursday Next goes missing. In an attempt to head off disaster, the Thursday next from the fictional books, referred to as "written Thursday," and aided by her mechanical butler, Sprockett, is sent out to do what she can. The secretive Men in Plaid are one cause for concern, and written Thursday thinks she'll have to travel to RealWorld to find the real Thursday. Jasper Fforde's novel has received positive reviews with the Los Angeles Times saying, "And though it's tempting to look for guidance in the previous Thursday Next installments, it's better to just suspend disbelief, fasten your seat belt and enjoy the mind-bending TransGenre Taxi ride with Thursday Next, Sprockett and the rest of Fforde's wacky and wondrous creations."
