Well yes, I do. View all 3 comments. Given Hades’ diabolical machinations and the visit to the underworld to rescue President Formby in TN4, it would seem logical that if there were someone downstairs, then there has to be someone upstairs, too. Nov 15, David Baldacci rated it it was amazing.
With Goliath attempting to replace Thursday at every opportunity with synthetic Thursdays, the prediction that Friday’s Destiny-Aware colleagues will die in mysterious circumstances, and a looming meteorite that could destroy all human life on earth, Thursday’s retirement is going to be anything but easy. I have to wonder which Tuesday it is dangling from the twisted rope just under the book she fell through. If you haven’t read the earlier books, or even if your memory of the last couple is a little dim mine was it can feel like a lot of references are whizzing by.
I’m not sure even now that I can quite put my finger on why and it’s not as if it was a poor effort; tne just didn’t meet the expectations that JF has caused me to have.

I felt very clever for knowing the reference, since it felt as though it was something obscure, but of course for the rest of the book I was onc Very early in the book, Fforde references this line: Thursday is faced with an array of family problems – son Friday’s lack of focus since his career in the Chronoguard was relegated to a might-have-been, daughter Tuesday’s difficulty perfecting the Anti-Smote shield needed to thwart an angry Deity’s promise to wipe Swindon off the face of the earth, and Jenny, who doesn’t exist.
Tuesday actually counted our steps, in order to disprove the Gravitube’s famous boast of ‘the globe in five hundred paces’ In fact, she counted only four hundred and sixty two from stepping onto the Skyrail at Aldbourne, transferring to the subsonic bullet at Clary-Lamarr, and making our way to Tube 7 at Saknussen International.
I think someone once described it as “so real you almost feel like you could buy real estate there” and I wholeheartedly agree. The question was, why? With Goliath attempting to replace Thursday at every opportunity with synthetic Thursdays, the prediction that Friday’s Destiny-Aware colleagues will die in mysterious circumstances, and a looming meteorite that could destroy all human life on earth, Thursday’s retirement is going to be anything but easy. Dec 14, Hannah rated it liked it.
It would have made for an amusing couple of paragraphs, but ultimately it had to go. In short, it is a pretty standard week in Swindon a la Fforde.
Al As usual, loved it! Plot Thread Four Multiple Thursdays Again, one of the interesting things about series books is that you can exploit unused ideas and dangling plot threads from previous books. Thanks to Tuesday’s inventions and lab requirements, the Next-Parke-Laines’ have such an estate and Millon de Floss is their necessary hermit-to-be as well as Thursday’s ex-stalker and biographer; he still s to pass his hermiting exams.
Plus God has decided to bring back some good old “Old Testament” smiting. Once the capsules were preboarded with passengers, we were simply manouvered into place and then dropped down the hole to fall the oor so miles to the other side of the planet. I love the crazy world that Frorde has created.

I know I wanna visit. Just clink on the links to whisk you off to a world of confusion and wonder, or just read wjo top to bottom – it’s all on one page.
He’s just as funny as ever. He stared at me for a moment. At the end of the prior book, she was discovered injured and her wounds have not yet healed. During rewrites I start at looking at ways to pick up the pace.
Well, there is, in two ways: Librarians, what say you? Thursday is older now and recovering only slowly from her little incident in One of Sister Henrietta is actually Brother Henry. The return of old characters YAY! Mr Fforde, it’s been a pleasure talking to me.
