Críticas:

'Clever plot lines, wit, and Fforde's unique humorous style ensures the reader is captivated from start to finish. A must for anyone wanting a light-hearted read in a class of its own.' * Good Book Guide * 'If you haven't read Jasper Fforde before, THE BIG OVER EASY, is likely to come as a surprise . . . the combination of fantasy and (more of less) classic murder makes a wild and enjoyable change' * Sunday Telegraph * 'Clever plot lines, wit, and Fforde's unique humorous style ensures the reader is captivated from start to finish. A must for anyone wanting a light-hearted read in a class of its own.' * Good Book Guide * 'Fans of the late Douglas Adams or, even, Monty Python, will feel at home with Fforde' * Herald * 'There is no more familiar genre than the detective story. The problem is that the sleuth story is now so familiar that it's in serious danger of getting boring. What's to be done? Jasper Fforde has the answer. Once you open this book, you'll find it very hard to put down. I've never read anything like this. And I couldn't get enough' * Daily Ireland * 'If you haven't read Jasper Fforde before, THE BIG OVER EASY, is likely to come as a surprise . . . the combination of fantasy and (more of less) classic murder makes a wild and enjoyable change' * Sunday Telegraph * 'Fans of the late Douglas Adams or, even, Monty Python, will feel at home with Fforde' * Herald * 'Fforde's books are more than an ingenious idea. They are written with buoyant zest and are tautly plotted. They have empathetic heroes and heroines who nearly make terribly mistakes and suitably dastardly villains who do. They also have more twists and turns than Christie, and are embellished with the rich details of a Dickens or Pratchett. As Humpty Dumpty's life-story is revealed, the mystery becomes curiouser and curiouser, and the compulsion to find out what is going on increases. A real treat.' * Independent * 'There is no more familiar genre than the detective story. The problem is that the sleuth story is now so familiar that it's in serious danger of getting boring.

A real treat.' * Independent * 'Fforde's writing, besides fast and sharp, is rather like an imaginative cloudburst falling to earth in rearranged pieces.' * Aberdeen Press & Journal * 'Jasper Fforde here mixes nursery rhymes with golden age detective fiction to produce something very accomplished indeed.' * Guardian * 'You want ridiculously brilliant? Look no further...' * Tower Hamlets Recorder * 'Fforde may be an acquired taste, but it's worth acquiring.' * SFX Bath * 'Fforde is a master entertainer, and a wordsmith of dexterous genius.' * The Scotsman * 'Fforde offers a cascade of puns, plays on words, surrealism, satire and verbal virtuosity...Astonishingly, he stays funny for 400 pages' * The Times * 'Fforde is a master entertainer, and a wordsmith of dexterous genius. He tosses in palindromes and anagrams like a tickertape of polysyllabic cleverness. A copy of this book should be free to all purchases of Scrabble.' * The Scotsman * 'Fforde offers a cascade of puns, plays on words, surrealism, satire and verbal virtuosity...Astonishingly, he stays funny for 400 pages' * The Times * 'This is the first if best-selling Fforde's hilarious, absurd and utterly compelling new series of nursery crimes for adults.' * Daily Mirror * 'Consistently clever' * Publishers Weekly * This is the first of best-selling Fforde's hilarious, absurd and utterly compelling new series of nursery crimes for adults. * Daily Mirror * Consistently clever * Publishers Weekly * A riot of puns, in-jokes and literary allusions that Fforde carries off with aplomb * Daily Mail * 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 * Now humour is notoriously subjective so what I've just described might just sound plain daft to you. But I love it. THE BIG OVER EASY is great not just because it's very funny but also because it works properly as a whodunnit. Comic genius. * Observer,Peter Guttridge * This year's grown-up J K Rowling * The Sunday Times *
