    The fouth instalment of the Thursday Next series is my favourite one the one in which all the plotlines set out earlier are woven together and political satire enters the series in a grand wayIn Something Rotten Thursday returns from the book world to late 1980s England with her two year old son two dodos and the Prince of Denmark Hamlet who wishes to see a bit of the world As it happens Hamlet's arrival in the real wo

I laughed I cried I was nearly institut

I really enjoyed this installment in the Thursday Next series It moved uickly than The Well of Lost Plots and there was some suspense Overall it s the characters and the uirkiness that keep me invested in this series I love Fforde s writing style his humor and the literary allusions I love that the series is postmodern surrealist science fiction There s time travel strange technology and visits to the underworld Mythological characters feature as much as the characters of the literary canon I like Fforde best when he mixes the Outland with the Book World The clash of cultures is especially interesting to me and it s uniue to have the characters travel back and forth whereas Thursday living fully in the Book World had less variety and felt static Overall I liked this book a lot and think it continues Thursday s story well I was very relieved that view spoilerLanden is finally back His being eradicated for so long was starting to get frustrating and repetitive hide spoiler

E ever see Landen again Is shopping the new religion Can Thursday prevent Armageddon And who will babysit her son while she does itJoin Thursday on her toughest assignment yet and enter a world where fiction is always much stranger than the tru. I regarded reading the 4th book in the series like a duty rather than something interesting to pass time with I didn t really want to read it now but since I got through the first 3 I might as well read the 4th one too right Plus I would ve probably forgotten the plot in a year In other words Something Rotten was bound for failure right from the beginning and now I m wondering if I could just possibly insert yet another I somewhere in this paragraph ITwo years have passed since The Well of Lost Plots and Thursday is ready to go back to the Real World and get her husband reactualized Easier said than done Her friends at Jurisfiction are not ready for a new Bellman her son Friday needs a nanny and back home she s still very much a wanted criminalSince it never pours but rains she finds that Yorrick Kaine the villain from Lost in a Good Book is about to be elected a dictator for life The evil multinational Goliath Corporation has decided to up the ante by backing Kaine s candidacy and also angling to become a religion Luckily all this can be avoided if the Swindon Mallets win the 1988 Superhoop Too bad their players suckI have to admit there are LOTS of hilarious moments tonnes of memorable uotes and the televised election debates are extremely accurate I will award three points to Mr Kaine for an excellent nonspecific condemnation plus one bonus point for blaming the previous government and another for successfully mutating the uestion to promote the party line Mr van de Poste gets a point for a firm rebuttal but only two points for his condemnation as he tried to inject an impartial and intelligent observation I contamplated giving it a rating of 25 but the extremely satisfying ending tacked on an extra star It would ve been good enough to wrap up the entire series had Jasper Fforde decided to end the series here Luckily for fans that s not the case I however will be taking an indefinite break from the books35 stars for yet another funny and uotable book from the Thursday Next seriesReview of the 2nd book Lost in a Good BookReview of the 3rd book The Well of Lost Plots
