In my imagination....

Whenever I read (and re-read) the Thursday Next novels, I always see them in my mind eye as an 'anime' in the style of Hayao Miyazaki. I imagine Thursday as a grown up version of Nausicaa or Chihiro; I see other characters in the book in generic 'Miyazaki-esque' images too.

Hi Anise, welcome to the Fforum. If you have done any lurking you will already know what it is like, here, so don't blame us!

Help yourself to pies and drinks.

Both mrs. SkidMarks and I are fans of Mizazaki-Sensei. I find that idea interesting. I have never thought of the TN books like that, but I suspect I will next time.
