Thursday Next, literary detective and newlywed, is back to embark on an adventure that begins, quite literally on her own doorstep. It seems that Landen, her husband of four weeks, actually drowned in an accident when he was two years old. Someone, somewhere, sometime, is responsible. The sinister Goliath Corporation wants its operative Jack Schitt out of the poem in which Thursday trapped him, and it will do almost anything to achieve this - but bribing the ChronoGuard? Is that possible? Having barely caught her breath after The Eyre Affair, Thursday must battle corrupt politicians, try to save the world from extinction, and help the Neanderthals to species self-determination. Mastadon migrations, journeys into Just William, a chance meeting with the Flopsy Bunnies, and violent life-and-death struggles in the summer sales are all part of a greater plan. But whose? and why?… (mais)

Lost in a Good Book por Jasper Fforde (2002)

  1. 10
    Sideways Stories from Wayside School por Louis Sachar (changsbooks)
    changsbooks: If you loved the Wayside School series as a kid, it's time to graduate to Jasper Fforde's own brand of absurdism.
  2. 00
    The Rook por Daniel O'Malley (LongDogMom)
    LongDogMom: Same kind of quirky humour and style

    Who's Afraid of Beowulf? por Tom Holt (Dr.Science)
    Dr.Science: The English author Tom Holt is relatively unknown in America, but very popular in England. If you enjoy Jasper Fforde or Christopher Moore you will most certainly enjoy Tom Holt's wry sense of English humor and the absurd. He has written a number of excellent books including Expecting Someone Taller, and Flying Dutch, but they may be difficult to find at your library or bookstore.… (mais)

The second outing of Thursday Next is also quite fun and entertaining in a very crazy way. There are so many new things that we get to know about her world which are fantastical and make for a fascinating read. The plot here is thin and even though Thursday saves the world from Armageddon, it doesn’t feel that way. Its so difficult to keep track of all the wonders of this world but below are a few tidbits which will keep the reader wanting more.

Thursday attends a court hearing inside Kafka’s The Trial where the case is about her changing the ending of Jane Eyre. This is handled by Jurisfiction, the group of characters from various books who handle crimes happening inside books.
Miss Havisham from Great Expectations becomes Thursday’s mentor to teach her bookjumping and train her to be a part of Jurisfiction. She also loves driving cars in a very death-defying way.
If a character, plot line or book are Boojummed, they disappear from all copies of the book.
Pagerunners are characters who jump to other books and change their plots because they are bored with their monotonous character life.
Prose Resource Operatives from Jurisfiction may die if they go investigating in an adventure book.
Grammasites are parasites that feed on grammar. Example is an adjectivore that eats all the adjectives describing a noun until there is no way to describe it.
An extreme neocon party leader believes that his 3 MP party can win the next election by making a newly discovered long lost Shakespeare play license free. He almost succeeds until he and the play go missing before the election. ( )

Having trouble remembering them one by one. They're wearing a little thin but still entertaining. If you just want to read one book by this author, go for Shades of Grey. ( )
  Je9 | Aug 10, 2021 |
I foolishly thought I had read the first book in the series. So I was a bit lost (no pun intended). This is one of those "must read in order series" to fully appreciate the book. But I did enjoy it. Fforde is very clever with word play, although I felt like some of the jokes went over my head, as he often playfully refers to UK expressions that I am not familiar with. (ie. Chalk and Cheese) ( )

Even more insane, and even better. ( )

It was a little more difficult to keep track of what was happening in this sequel to "The Eyre Affair." Thursday's time-jumping father along with a multitude of book-hopping combine together to make for quite the humorous but confusing muddle. ( )

In Lost in a Good Book and The Well of Lost Plots, Fforde gets a bit bogged down in all the details of the fictional universe.
adicionada por Katya0133 | editarGalef, David, Yale Review (Oct 1, 2008)
 
There is a certain self-delighted quality to all this cleverness that would probably become annoying if Fforde weren't so resolutely unclever about his own writing. By and large, the story bounds along in one-sentence paragraphs that J. K. Rowling would be proud of.
