I cannot imagine why it has taken me so long to discover these books. The adventures of Thursday Next. This is brilliant comic fantasy, if you love books and reading these will have you in stitches and re-reading to pick up all the references to other books within the story!! Please , please in another life can I be a Literatec! The thought of being inside the covers of Jane Eyre and being recued by Edward Rochester.......... oh dear I shall have to lie down!
