Inhaltsangabe

Thursday Next, Head of JurisFiction and ex-SpecOps agent, returns to her native Swindon accompanied by a child of two, a pair of dodos and Hamlet, who is on a fact-finding mission in the real world.

Thursday has been despatched to capture escaped Fictioneer Yorrick Kaine but even so, now seems as good a time as any to retrieve her husband Landen from his state of eradication at the hands of the Chronoguard.

It’s not going to be easy. Thursday’s former colleagues at the department of Literary Detectives want her to investigate a spate of cloned Shakespeares, the Goliath Corporation are planning to switch to a new Faith based corporate management system and the Neanderthals feel she might be the Chosen One who will lead them to genetic self-determination.

With help from Hamlet, her uncle and time-travelling father, Thursday faces the toughest adventure of her career. Where is the missing President-for-life George Formby? Why is it imperative for the Swindon Mallets to win the World Croquet League final? And why is it so difficult to find reliable childcare?

Absurd political Dystopia hits close to home.

When I first listened to the book, chancellor Yorrick Kane seemed such an absurd figure that I found it hard to bear. Now, after two years of Donald Trump at the White House it feels like a very astute prediction of late 2010's politics and not at all farfetched.

Gut wie die ersten Bücher

Würden Sie Something Rotten noch mal anhören? Warum?

Wer die ersten drei Bücher dieser Serie genossen hat, wird auch dieses Buch geniessen. Und Emily Gray ist eine sehr gute Sprecherin.

quite good, but

not as good as its predecessor. I was surprised (having heard the previous audiobooks spoken by Gabrielle Kruger, and I loved her) how much I liked Emily Gray. Good choice.
