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.

Detalhes da Obra

Lost in a Good Book de Jasper Fforde (2002)

  1. 10
    Sideways Stories from Wayside School de 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 de Daniel O'Malley (LongDogMom)
    LongDogMom: Same kind of quirky humour and style
  3. 11
    Fables, Vol. 01: Legends in Exile de Bill Willingham (TomWaitsTables)
  4. 00
    Libriomancer de Jim C. Hines (TomWaitsTables)
  5. 00
    Freddy and Fredericka de Mark Helprin (carlym)
  6. 02
    Who's Afraid of Beowulf? de 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)

This is all kinds of wonderful - I actually like it better than The Eyre Affair (how often does that happen with a second novel?). The stakes are higher with Thursday being pregnant and Landon being eradicated and the end of the world coming up, so that automagically makes it a more exciting read. The clincher is that the characters are getting more fleshed out and the new ones that come on are even more hilarious than others. Case in point, Thursday's granny who is old and wants to die, but has realized that she has a curse on her - she won't die until she has read the ten worst books in the world! Of course, it doesn't have much bearing on the plot, but I have a feeling that Fforde has just waited for an opportunity to list the books he finds the most hideous. I actually found myself telling the book, "Read Madame Bovary, and you'll drop dead in a second!" I can't wait to read the rest of the series! ( )

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 more 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 a little more than the last one and I like seeing the Goliath Corporation take more of a front seat as the villain of these stories. Speaking of Goliath, my book had a little approval rating at the front of the book from Goliath which I thought was really cute and I love when books have those sort of things in them. I also loved how there were parts of this book that tied it to the titles of the previous books and to the sequels. And on top of that any book is made better in my mind with quotes at the beginnings of chapters. I loved this book a lot and to be honest I was a little surprised at that because the first one to me was good but not great. This book definitely convinced me to pick up the next book in this serious and I would enchorage anyone who read the the first book and liked the concept but thought some of the delivery was only meh, to definitely try this one because I think this one is a great sequel and a great improvement over the first one and I hope I like the next detective Next book as much as I liked this one!

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. ( )

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) ( )

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.

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.
