Lost in a Good Book
Lost in a Good Book by Jasper Fforde is the second book in the Thursday Next series. It begins where The Eyre Affair left off, with Thursday now married to the love of her life, Landen. All seems to be going great now that Hades is dead and no longer a threat. However, someone still seems to be out to get Thursday. Is Hades actually dead? Is the mega-corporation, Goliath, involved? As Thursday tries to solve these mysteries, her husband suddenly disappears from time and space. Someone has been messing with history! Thursday fights to get her husband back while also learning to become a book jumper with Miss Havisham from Great Expectations as her teacher. So much to learn, so little time. Read this book if you liked the first one, if you enjoy alternate realities, or if you're interested in strange tales that keep you thinking. I give it an 8 out of 10.
