Leaving Swindon behind her to hide out in the Well of Lost Plots (the place where all fiction is created), Thursday Next, Literary Detective and soon-to-be one parent family, ponders her next move from within an unpublished book of dubious merit entitled 'Caversham Heights'. Landen, her husband, is still eradicated, Aornis Hades is meddling with Thursday's memory, and Miss Havisham - when not sewing up plot-holes in 'Mill on the Floss' - is trying to break the land-speed record on the A409. But something is rotten in the state of Jurisfiction. Perkins is 'accidentally' eaten by the minotaur, and Snell succumbs to the Mispeling Vyrus. As a shadow looms over popular fiction, Thursday must keep her wits about her and discover not only what is going on, but also who she can trust to tell about it ... With grammasites, holesmiths, trainee characters, pagerunners, baby dodos and an adopted home scheduled for demolition, 'The Well of Lost Plots' is at once an addictively exciting adventure and an insight into how books are made, who makes them - and why there is no singular for 'scampi'. In the words of one critic: 'Don't ask. Just read it.'

Jasper Fforde traded a varied career in the film industry for staring out of the window and sucking the end of a pencil. He lives and works in Wales and has a passion for aviation. 'The Well of Lost Plots' is his third novel.From AudioFile:
People who love their silliness blasted with literary wit and panache will enjoy the third episode in the trials and tribulations of Thursday Next, Spec Ops agent provocateur. Thursday's awaiting her baby's birth. She's hiding in a B-novel in "the well of lost plots," the place where fiction is created and where books too bad to be published live. Elizabeth Sastre has perfected the occasionally air-headed, frequently befuddled Thursday. With words and allusions tumbling one over another in Fforde's altered reality, Sastre's performance is breathtaking. The seemingly unpronounceable comes trippingly off her tongue, and her frequent shifts between hilarity and hysteria are seamless. More than a good giggle, Fforde's political satire pokes fun at voracious bureaucracies that threaten individuality in any world. S.J.H.
