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.

But whose? and why?
Jasper Fforde is the author of three hit Thursday Next novels. After a varied career in the film industry, he now lives and works in Wales and has a passion for aviation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun reading Thursday Next is happily married and pregnant. But her husband and love of her life, Landen is eradicated by Goliath Corporation to blackmail Thursday into retrieving one of their employees she put in Poe's The Raven. At the same time Thursday's father has come to warn her of the end of the world. The world will be consumed by pink goo. Thursday learns all about book jumping from Miss Havisham from Great Expectations. Anyways she now has to save the world and Landen. Unlike a lot of other readers I enjoyed this book more than the first, "Eyre Affair". I think I was more receptive to Fforde's puns, witticisms, etc. The only negative is I wish there was more character development.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More ffun with fforde Detective Thursday Next continues her quest to maintain the integrity of the fiction world. If you love classic literature, you will love how Mr fforde weaves it into his storyline. Clever, witty are but 2 ways to describe Jasper's way he draws and involves you in the story.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Continuing good work from a fabulous Welsh author Lost in a Good Book picks up right where the Eyre Affair leaves off, and launches into an even wilder roller coaster of insanity. New characters (though you'll recognize most from previous reading adventures) help Thursday spin her mad tale. Keep an eye out for the infamous Cheshire Cat, possibly the best literary crossover in history.
