    The Bear Went Over the Mountain: A Novel (Owl Book) de William Kotzwinkle (4leschats)
    4leschats: This book is the closest that I have read to the metafictional aspects of Fforde's work. Kotzwinkle uses a bear to underscore the absurdities within the publishing industry.

As with all of this series: Much fun. ( )
  wetdryvac | Mar 2, 2021 |
It had been a while since I had read any of this series, so I was missing a bit of back story--or at least it was fuzzy, but the romp of satirical violence and terror mixed with romance and literary fiction was still fun. I highly recommend starting with at the beginning of this series and read right through. ( )

Great mind candy. One of [a:Jasper Fforde|4432|Jasper Fforde|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1528718375p2/4432.jpg]'s better Thursday Next novels. Less disjointed than some. Flowed better. The humor was great. ( )

While everyone in Swindon prepares for an Almight smiting, Tuesday is trying to perfect an Anti-Smote shield the save the city while Joffe makes backup plans. In the meantime, the ban on time travel alters Friday's trajectory from a leader in the Chronoguard to a murderer. And, what of mind worm child Jenny? As Thursday faces domestic woes and recovers from the assassination attempt in the previous volume, she finds herself again battling Goliath who keeps replacing her with synthetic clones while trying to adapt to her new role as head librarian.
Typical, hilarious Fforde antics ensue! ( )

Back in the real world, Thursday Next is recovering for the injuries that happened at the end of the previous book. The GSD (Global Standard Deity) has threatened to smite Swindon, and the only person capable of stopping this is her daughter Tuesday. Her arch enemy, Aornis Hades has escape from the time loop she is stuck in and has planted a mind worm in the family that makes them think that they have a third child, Jenny.

The Goliath company now control the police and Spec-Ops, and are looking to get full control of the country. Next has been appointed head of Wessex libraries and the battle for control against Goliath begins.

Like this one better than the previous book. The plot was much more coherent, and involved other characters this time.

Hasn't been a bad series overall. Lots to like about them, with bookcases of of literary references and a unique take of England and the creation of a bookworld that made the stories in some ways. Reminded me of the Dirk Gently series in some way where your take on the world is given a twist. Glad that i have read then, but some were not quite as good as the others. ( )

"A drawn elephant has a desire to exist?"

"Certainly. All of existence came into being simply because it wanted to be. The big bang wasn't so much a big bang as a hasty dash toward an opportunity to trade nothingness for somethingness. The main contributory factor to the entire universe was a momentary effect in need of a cause. And in that split second, everything that wanted to have existence -- which is everything -- came racing through in one huge hot mass. They've been trying to sort themselves out ever since."
Budget meetings have never been interesting, ever, despite numerous attempts over the years to try to josh them up a bit. Notable uplifting techniques involved the use of fire-eaters and performing elephants, but they didn't work. The dry proceedings are well known to bring on a form of lethargy that can stay with attendees for the rest of the week, and Budget Therapy was used with great success in the treatment of patients suffering an excess of good-natured perkiness.
"Working in fiction does give one a somewhat tenuous hold on reality, but it's not the hold that's tenuous -- it's the reality: Which reality? Whose reality? Does it matter anyway? And will there be cake?"
"What a beautifully described morning!"
"Do I have to talk to insane people?"

"You're a librarian now. I'm afraid it's mandatory."   Chap. 22
