Publisher's Summary

The BookWorld's leading enforcement officer Thursday Next is four months into an enforced semi-retirement following an assassination attempt. She returns home to Swindon for what you'd expect to be a time of recuperation. If only life were that simple. 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. And that's not all.
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.

Another brilliant Thursday Next book

Would you consider the audio edition of The Woman Who Died a lot to be better than the print version?

I have visual problems now, so Audible has given me the gift of books again. The narrator is good and a most enjoyable read.

What other book might you compare The Woman Who Died a lot to and why?

The Jasper Fforde books are 'one out of the box'! They have a great deal of literary knowledge in them, are a lot of fun with some wonderful plays on words.

What about Gabrielle Kruger’s performance did you like?

Gabrielle Kruger has a great, laid back approach to reading Thursday Next that enhances the character and story.

Any additional comments?

A most enjoyable listen/read. Thank You!

prefer the earlier books

though interesting this book has cut away from the original story line and totally away from the book jumping which for me made up the character of Thursday next. I had a feeling as I listened to it that the author just wanted to finish the series of books and bring it to end, which I guess has happened but not in the way I expected or really enjoyed.

Quintessential Fforde, not so well read

Quirky, witty, highly confusing to anyone who doesn't relax by untangling string. The performance suffered from occasional, jarring lapses of comprehension. Inappropriate inflections inadequately understood sentence structure made this, for me, a very frustrating listen.
