Lost in a Good Book

Alternate History by Jasper Fforde


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?

Ein würdiger Nachfolger von der Eyre Affair. Fforde kann seine gute Idee weiterführen und sie wirkt nicht etwa ausgelatscht sonder noch genau so frisch wie im ersten Buch der Serie. Es bezieht sich nicht mehr nur auf ein Buch, sondern auf mehrere, aber selbst wenn man diese nicht kennt, ist es sehr unterhaltsam.
