Synopses & Reviews
This debut is the first in a series of "Thursday Next" novels, the second of which is due next year. This book takes the reader to an eccentric parallel world where dodos are regenerated, computers don't exist and policemen can travel across time. This will receive a big promotional campaign and is expected to do very well.
There is another 1985, somewhere in the could-have-been, where dodos are regenerated in home-cloning kits and everyone is disappointed by the ending of "Jane Eyre". But in this world there are policemen who can travel across time, a Welsh republic - and a woman called Thursday Next.
