en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – June 2007
The Gingerbreadman - psychopath, sadist, convicted murderer and cake/biscuit - is loose on the streets of Reading. It isn't Jack Spratt's case. Enforced non-involvement with the Gingerbreadman hunt looks to be frustrating until a chance encounter leads them onto the hunt for missing journalist Henrietta 'Goldy' Hatchett.

Recenzii

'With its witty literary allusions, social satire and blurred boundaries between fiction and reality, it's all completely mad, very funny ... It also adds to Fforde's growing reputation as one of Britain's most inventive novelists and the thriller element keeps you guessing too.' -- Word 'What makes Fforde a star is not his ebullient cleverness, but the elusive sympathy factor. However ridiculous his themes seem, his characters have a compelling immediacy.' -- Independent 'It would be hard not to be won over by Fforde's undeniable energy and the sheer, unrelenting number of gags' -- Daily Mail 'THE FOURTH BEAR sees one of our funniest and most inventive authors at the height of his powers. The jokes come so fast that it is clear the author simply let his imagination off the leash and had a great time while writing it. You will have a great time reading it too.' -- Daily Express 'Fforde is inventive and hugely funny.' -- The Times 'THE FOURTH BEAR is a great choice as it has everything - humour, intrigue and cucumbers as a matter of national security ... will have you wondering how you haven't discovered Fforde before.' -- Anys Scoular, Observer Praise for Jasper Fforde's new crime series -- : 'Fforde's dexterously tailored nonsense has an underlying thread of shrewd satire, and the author's own wry, dry narration helps to compensate for the omission in this abridgement of so many of his gloriously surreal jokes.' -- The Times 'Jasper Fforde is flavour of the comedy month, and this genial spoof whodunit if a fine example of his style... Fforde is a relaxed, polished storyteller who never falls in love with his own cleverness' -- Sunday Telegraph I love it. THE BIG OVER EASY is great not just because it's very funny...but also because it works properly as a whodunit...Comic genius. -- Observer A riot of puns, in-jokes and literary allusions that Fforde carries off with aplomb -- Daily Mail 'This novel is a wonderful combination of silliness and cleverness, and a delightful holiday from reality. It's got such a good comic premise that it would work even if played straight, but virtually every page is adorned with puns, gags, tongue-twisters or comic setpieces, keeping the reader in a perpetual state of amusement.' -- Independent on Sunday 'This is the first of best-selling Fforde's hilarious, absurd and utterly compelling new series of nursery crimes for adults.' -- Daily Mirror 'This book, energetic, entertaining and packed with gags, is unlike anything you'll ever read.' -- Telegraph

Notă biografică

Jasper Fforde traded a varied career in the film industry for staring out of the window and chewing the end of a pencil. He lives and works in Wales and has a passion for aviation.
