The Well of Lost Plots
The Well of Lost Plots by Jasper Fforde is the third book in the Thursday Next series. Thursday is on a character exchange program, living inside an unpublished book while she waits out the trouble waiting for her at home - Goliath and SpecOps searching for her, her husband eradicated from time. In addition, her encounter with Aornis Hades (in the previous book) has begun to rob her of her own memories. Her mind seems to be erasing all that she has lived through. Now working as a bookjumper in the Jurisfiction department, Thursday must work to get her memories back, help fix plotholes, and eventually, search for a murderer in fiction. Read this book if you like strange alternative worlds, if you read the first two book, or if you're interested in metafiction. I give it a 7 out of 10.
