    Who's Afraid of Beowulf? por Tom Holt (Dr.Science)
    Dr.Science: The English author Tom Holt is relatively unknown in America, but very popular in England. If you enjoy Jasper Fforde or Christopher Moore you will most certainly enjoy Tom Holt's wry sense of English humor and the absurd. He has written a number of excellent books including Expecting Someone Taller, and Flying Dutch, but they may be difficult to find at your library or bookstore.… (más)

Absolutely fabulous finish to this four book series - a true delight to read. Fforde does such a good job of weaving together seemingly random moments for a great story. Tongue-in-cheek humor and a snide sense of satire make for truly great read. Looking forward to the continuing adventures of Thursday Next. ( )

Dear gods, the... handsaw, the hawk, the madness. I'm loving this series. ( )
  wetdryvac | Mar 2, 2021 |
This series has been fun, but I really don't think I can read anymore of these. The humor and the writing is just not my style, and though I've made it this far, I don't really feel up to struggling through three more books. ( )

Somehow, this installment in the Thursday Next series felt like less fun and more work. Too many subplots to track, though the imaginative force it took to create them all still blows this reader's mind. ( )

Two years have passed and Thursday is still working in Jurisfiction and hunting the Minotaur, but she longs to return to the real world and find Landen, previously eradicated by the Goliath Corporation. Her son Friday is now two

She returns to Swindon with Hamlet, who wants to see what the real world is like and stays with her mother and father. She gets her job back at SpecOps and starts to find out all she has missed. President George Formby is still in power but the Goliath Corporation has made allegiances with Yorrick Kaine and plan to oust him. Kaine has growing power and influence and is using it to stir up hatred of Denmark, and has sought the services of 'The Windowmaker' (a spelling mistake, but it was too late to correct) an assassin who turns out to be the wife of a friends of hers.

She meets with the CEO of the Goliath Corporation to try again to get Landen back, and they promise that they will for her forgiveness, but she is convinced that she has had some mind control applied. Landedn appears, but it takes a while for reality to get used to him being there so he keeps disappearing. Her father, now re-admitted to the time-travelling ChronoGuard, warns her of the perils that Kaine's plan pose. Along with the Goliath Corporation planning to become a religion to avoid the prophecy that they are doomed to fail, and that Thursday has to get the Swindon Mallets to win the 1988 Croquet Superhoop to avoid the end of the world, her biggest problem is getting childcare.

Not quite as good as the previous one the the series, it didn't seem to have the focus of the last. That said, I do like the way that Fforde writes these, they are cleverly done, and full of wit and ideas and sub plots that turn and twist. ( )

Fforde continues to pitch high, wide, and fast.

Sticking with this oddball novel is rewarding, and readers who share Fforde's love of literature and surreal sense of humor will enjoy this free fall through absurdity.

With humorous illustrations and curious footnotes sprinkled throughout, Fforde's latest will have hardcore fans roaring.
añadido por Katya0133 | editarPublishers Weekly (Aug 16, 2004)
 
It's easy to be delighted by a writer who loves books so madly -- and who can imagine a Hamlet who roams the real world, declaring: ''That Freud fellow will have a bloody nose if ever I meet him.''
añadido por Katya0133 | editarThe New York Times, Janet Maslin (Aug 5, 2004)
 
[Fforde] is always charming company, and if he sometimes strays too far into fantasy, well, what's so great about reality?

The Minotaur had been causing trouble far in excess of his literary importance—first by escaping from the fantasy-genre prison book Sword of the Zenobians, then by leading us on a merry chase across most of fiction and thwarting all attempts to recapture him.
