    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

    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 thing

    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 still very typical of Fforde's clever funny and crazy ideasThursday is developing her sk

    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a childlike glee and it makes me happy to have spent some time rereading this bookNote The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement You ca

    Maybe only a 35 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

    I really really liked this seuel 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 paradox

Hat begins on her own doorstep It seems that Landen her husband actually drowned. 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 mePart 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 andor likable characters and an actual plot line with any sort of momentumAnd 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 spoilerthe 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 thereI 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 their books So who takes over if they re not thereAnd I m unclear on whether the characters that come out of the book are for specific editions or since the library at Jurisfiction is sort of an place of archetypes where the books are alive if a character is removed from one edition are they removed from all editionsAnd if so how come throwing Jack Schitt into the Raven only seemed to effect the version that Thursday was reading Or was it all versions and if it was all versions then why was no one mad at her for that when they were mad at her for changing the ending of Jane Eyre hide spoiler

Thursday Next literary detective and newlywed is back to embark on an adventure t. 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 books1 Thursday is a literary detective who can jump into a book to try to solve whatever crime has occurred within the book2 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 that4 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 them5 It s such a great concept and sometimes well executed And it s got your typical romance component in it too6 But it can get very confusing if you don t read slowly and think about every single action There are so many made up words actions histories it s an alternative fantasy universe and you never know what might actually happen7 At times I think it s one of the best stories I ve read At others it s still confusing me But I focus on the little parts surrounding the realities of the characters and what they are doingPhew complicated to write this review It can t be a normal one without it going on for pages about what is actually going on All you need to know is if you have a huge imagination don t need structure and love books you must give it a chance About Me For those new to me or my
