    Book Review Jasper Fforde had a stroke of brilliance with the Thursday Next series of adventure books Lost in a Good Book is the second release in the series and I ve given it a very high 3 of 5 stars As it s a very difficult book to truly wrap your head around, it couldn t get a 5 from me When I compared it to the first one, The Eyre Affair, I had to give it a slightly lower rating just because I enjoyed the first one A few really cool things about these books 1 Thursday is a literary detective who can jump into a book to try to solve whatever crime has occurred within the book.2 Crimes can include changing plot lines, removing characters, introducing chaos3 You have to be mad or brilliant, or both, to come up with these kinds of stores In this one, The Raven and Flopsy Bunny are major character arcs Can you imagine dealing with that 4 The book has footnotes on every page, but they re not real footnotes They are commentary or thoughts about what s being said in the book that the person talking wouldn t necessarily know, but the reader needs to know them I m sure you re confused if you ve never read one of these books So am I from time to time, and I ve read three of them.5 It s such a great concept, and sometimes well executed And it s got your typical romance component in it too.6 But it can get very confusing if you don t read slowly and think about every single action There are so many made up wo...

    This was a reread and I still loved it just as much as the first time around Pickwick the dodo gets so many mentions in the early books The way she looks after her egg and makes plock plock noises is delightful And of course this is the book where something happens to poor Landon Disappointing because he is one of my favourite characters but stil...

    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childlike glee, and it makes me happy to have spent some time rereading this book.Note The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the changes in Go...

    Maybe only a 3.5 star, but it was another fun trip into such a strange world filled with literary references, slippery characters, murder, mayhem There s plenty of wry humor, puns, ridiculous situations to make sure things don t get too serious I d call it a cozy mystery, except that belies just how fantastic the world is there is no way the reader can figure out what is going to happen I sometimes wonder if the author knows He writes the way Mrs Haversham Yes, the lady from Great Expectations drives with complete abandon sheer joy It s a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world except for Lola Thursday Oh, oh, Lola Thursday OK, I ll quit singing now, but if this series had a theme song, that wouldn t be a bad one.It was a bit uneven, but I put that down to the high points striking me as so funny There s a great scene at a bo...

    This is one of those books that I wanted to like so much than I did Hell, it s one of those books that I feel like I should like than I do I mean, with the little literary cameos and the wry humor and occasionally groan inducing puns , with the jumping through books and really just the whole thing it should be right up my alley But it just doesn t work for me.Part of it is that I feel it has a little bit of the Un Lun Dun problem it seems a showcase for all the nifty ideas and wordplay that Fforde can throw in, but he seems less concerned with developing interesting and or likable characters and an actual plot line with any sort of momentum.And part of it is that while I really like the idea of Jurisfiction and it seems like a really cool premise, I m less enthralled with the execution Parts of it just don t make sense For instance, view spoiler the characters in the books are limited to their lines and actions in the book, and, when someone is reading their book, they have to be there to say their lines however, these same characters often go gallivanting into other books and doing various business for Jurisfiction So what happens when someone reads one of their books when they re not there I mean, sometimes they have a character exchange program, but that seems to be for long term things For short term cases, it just seems like they aren t in t...

    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 sequel 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 either Now, I rarely read series It s even rare for me to read books in a series back to ...

    I really, really liked this sequel I liked the first book in this series but I thought this one was incredible I felt like this one really drove home the bookish element to this series that the first one only touched on Some of my favorite parts about this book was the book jumping, the conversations in the footnotes, all the bootstrap paradoxes, and this books funny self awareness In the last book we got a glimpse of Thursdays power to jump into the events of any book, but it wasn t the main plot line In this book we really get to see how it all worked and I loved the imagery of a library that contains every book ever written as well as every idea for a book I would love to just go hang out there for a while I really liked the way the characters developed in this book Last book I found the characters to be interesting but they didn t really grab me and I was way interested in the alternate world the author created and not so much the characters In this sequel I loved all the characters just as much as I loved the world building I also enjoyed the mystery of this book ...

    Bad boy she added in a scolding tone The Tasmanian tiger looked crestfallen, sat on its blanket by the Aga and stared down at its paws Rescue Thylacine, explained my mother Used to be a lab animal He smoked forty a day until his escape It s costing me a fortune in nicotine patches Isn t it, DH 82 This is such a clever book and there ere are so many quotable passages, but the problem is that may favourite parts contain spoilers of either this book or of pretty much any classic work of literature worth reading I really admire the level of detail and research that Fforde put into this book, but I didn t think it lived up to the enjoyment of the first book, The Eyre Affair, tho Maybe the novelty of Thursday s world has worn off a bit already, maybe the incessant puns and jokes were just a bit too much.However, Thursday is still one of the best protagonists out there kickass and kind.The only real problem I have with this book is that it was so obviously written with the idea to continue the story in book 3 and therefore doesn t even attempt to be a standalone story which makes me feel somewhat cheated and tricked into having to get the next book to find out what happened to my favour...

    Though I m not generally a big fan of book series, the Thursday Next books are really growing on me This second book picks up shortly after The Eyre Affair ended and follows Thursday as she again tangles with Goliath, tries to figure out why she is experiencing life threatening coincidences, and begins to learn about the fine art of book jumping Though character development does not seem to be Fforde s priority and the bad guys in particular a little too thinly drawn, the underlying premise of this book was so interesting to me I was able to overlook the occasional clich d moment As someone who has always gotten easily lost in books, I really love the idea of being able to literally ...
