Lost in a Good Book - Thursday Next, Bk 2
Author: Jasper Fforde
Detective Thursday Next is back for another round of time traveling and bookish sleuthing after Fforde's successful debut, The Eyre Affair. Like his earlier novel, this one is set in the U.K., in an alternate version of our universe-one in which time travel is possible and the boundaries between life and literature are porous.

This book is by the same author that wrote "The Eyre Affair" and is very comparable to that. Thursday Next checks in and out of book worlds to solve mysteries and also experiences self discovery. Very interesting and enjoyable reading. Very well written

An excellent, funny, read full of literary allusions. You really need to read The Eyre Affair first, and be familiar with most of the English Cannon to appreciate this book.

Jasper Fforde is amazingly witty and imaginative with moments of downright insanity in his punning word creations and allusions to other literary works. And a terrific writer. I loved his first book in the Thursday Next series (The Eyre Affair), and I think this second one is much better than that. I have his third one (The Well of Lost Plots) on order. When it arrives, I'll stop whatever I'm reading at the moment and jump into Fforde's loony world.

Book 2 of the Thursday Next series. In this book, Thursday loses her husband, and everyone else loses all memory of him. Is this Goliath's revenge for foiling their plans in the book? Is it part of her punishment for changing the ending of Jane Eyre? Or has she made a new enemy?
