Curses About 40 pages from the end I had to run out and get the next book in the Thursday Next series Well of Lost Plots This book doesn t have an ending Even worse I got sucked up into it and had to keep going Lost in a Good Book is the seuel to The Eyre Affair starring spec ops officer Thursday Next To say that Thursday s life is complicated is an understatement I m not going to get into the plot or characters of this book To do so would spoil this book the preceding book and the following book I will say that unlike The Eyre Affair Lost in a Good Book does not stand on its own You must have read the first book to understand it Then you will have to read the next book to get any resolution I rather suspect that there won t be any resolution in the next book eitherNow I rarely read series It s even rare for me to read books in a series back to back But Jasper Fford is such a compelling writer with such a weird imagination that I m breaking my usual rulesIf you like weirdness and literature and don t mind spending a lot of time on a series go ahead and read the Thursday Next series They are a lot of fun

Lost in a Good Book

Thursday Next literary detective and newlywed is back to embark on an adventure t. The idea of parallel universes alternate timelines uchronias is an often used trope but in this constellation and with the interconnections and dependencies on and in the real book world and the not any so just fictional second world it gives the idea a whole new dimensionIt s close to a literary and sociological experiment to integrate the worldview mentality history of the time the novels were created and how they influenced the awareness about those times and how novels are than just entertainment but studies about different times of human history of changing morality genre pictures true crime history distilled on pagesThe authors influence reaches a whole new dimension if one sees fictional works not just as something existing in the writers and readers mind but as real and true worldbuilding a kind of superpower to construct new worlds the ultimate mind over matter proof the option to be a creator of fictional universes for everybodyTime travel split up personalities that could develop in different directions criticism of cartels one world trying to take over the other exaggeration of many character tropes evil powers trying to destroy one of the worlds or subjects in it there is so much hidden in this universe that it s difficult to get it all in just one read It s one of the greatest love letters to reading and literature in general tooI imagine that a series like this could go on close to forever because the options are on the table and there is not just all literature ever written but everything published this day not to mention new forms of art such as video games and the good old buddies movies and series that are now having a renaissance thanks to VR and AR An expanded satire universe like this would be something I want to totally get lost in Tropes show how literature is conceptualized and created and which mixture of elements makes works and genres uniue

Hat begins on her own doorstep It seems that Landen her husband actually drowned. I love the sheer inventiveness of Jasper Fforde s books and in this series the madcap way that he messes with literature with both love and a childlike glee and it makes me happy to have spent some time rereading this bookNote The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this decision hereIn the meantime you can read the entire review at Smorgasbook
