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is created), Thursday Next, Literary Detective and soon-to-be one parent family, ponders her next move from within an unpublished book of dubious merit entitled 'Caversham Heights'.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'.

Why aren't all these books available on audible?
Equal to all the others of the Thursday Next series. Jasper Fforde is the quintessential writer of books you want to hear out loud - a romp, English literature lesson, suspense and hilarity, all rolled up in one package. How can one not listen to them?
All equally good
At first I didn't think e voice fit Thursday Next as I had imagined her to be. Now, it can't be anyone but her.
Laugh, a hell of a lot
Please, oh please, get the rest of this series on audible.com, soon. Then get onto the two book nursery crime series. I have friends who I know would sign up to audible, just for those nine books.
