Lost in a Good Book

lost in a good bookLost in a Good Book By Jasper Fforde

This is the second book in the Thursday Next series, the sequel to The Eyre Affair. I didn’t think it was as good but it was still a fine follow up. It was similar to the first book, plot wise, but the new characters were nice. I enjoyed the Jurisfiction parts, and I thought Miss Havisham and her relationship with the Red Queen was amusing. My only problem was that it didn’t completely resolve everything, **SPOILER**there is still the question of her husband and getting him back.

  1. I thoroughly enjoyed “The Big Overeasy” but, from your review it looks like this might be one to skip. Do you have a preference between Fforde’s Thursday Next and his Jack Spratt series?


    1. I just finished the Fourth Bear and I’m working on the third book in the Thursday Next series and I would have to say I enjoy the Jack Spratt series more. I like that each story is self contained.
