Imagine this Great Britain in 1985 is close to being a police state The Crimean War has dragged on for than 130 years and Wales is self governing The only recognizable thing about this England is her citizens enduring love of literature And the Third Most Wanted criminal, Acheron Hades, is stealing characters from England s cherished literary heritage and holding them for ransom Bibliophiles will be enchanted, but not surprised, to learn that stealing a character from a book only changes that one book, but Hades has escalated his thievery He has begun attacking the original manuscripts, thus changing all copies in print and enraging the reading public That s why Special Operations Network has a Literary Division, and it is why one of its operatives, Thursday Next, is on the case. Thursday is utterly delightful She is vulnerable, smart, and, above all, literate She has been trying to trace Hades ever since he stole Mr Quaverley from the original manuscript of Martin Chuzzlewit and killed him You will only remember Mr Quaverley if you read Martin Chuzzlewit prior to 1985 But now Hades has set his sights on one of the plums of literature, Jane Eyre, and he must be stopped. How Thursday achieves this and manages to preserve one of the great books of the Western canon makes for delightfully hilarious reading You do not have to be an English major to be pulled into this story You ll be rooting for Thursday, Jane, Mr Rochester and a familiar ending Otto PenzlerThis novel might be called James Bond Meets Harry Potter in the Twilight Zone In fact, the reader plays name that literary reference through most of this zany work, where characters wander around in time from the Crimean War through the present and into the future, and in and out of novels including, of course, Jane Eyre The narrator, Tuesday Next, is a tough, gun totin heart of gold heroine with a pet dodo, a true love she has refused to acknowledge and a brilliant, dotty scientist uncle named Mycroft Her job is to rescue literary characters kidnapped out of books from being wiped off the face of every copy of a work by tracking down and outwitting the purely evil Asheron Hades and Goliath Corporation greedyman Jack Shit Throughout, discussions of who really wrote Shakespeare s plays abound, along with send ups of every literary genre from the highest to the lowest brow Sastre s reading works particularly well because she s good at the straight narrative, while the nature of the book s language makes melodramatic voices for the other bizarre characters Simultaneous release with the Viking hardcover Forecasts, Dec 17, 2001 Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc.
