This is the seventh, and currently the last, novel in the series featuring Thursday Next, former Literary Detective in an alternative universe England. I read this book once before, in June of 2013, and very much enjoyed reading it again.
Next is still recovering from almost being killed in the previous book. She winds up being the Chief Librarian of the Swinton All-you-can-eat at Fatso’s Drink Not Included Library. Swinton’s city center and Cathedral are due to be smited by the Deity within the week, but the Anti-Smite Shield that Thursday’s daughter Tuesday is working on (while also attending high school) will not be ready for at least a month. Thursday’s son Friday has found out that he is due to commit murder, and the evil Goliath Corporation has been creating impressive synthetic Thursday Nexts, which upon activation take on the real Thursday’s memories and consciousness, and destroying worthless pages of 13th century Smut.
I enjoyed reading this book, and when the next Next book comes out I will be happy to read it.
