The Well of Lost Plots by Jasper Fforde

The Well of Lost Plots by Jasper Fforde. New York: Viking, 2004. ISBN: 0-670-03289-1

This is the third of Jasper Fforde’s remarkably creative Thursday Next novels. I wrote about the first, The Eyre Affair, back in July of 2004, and the next, Lost in a Good Book, last October. Thursday Next is our unlikely heroine, a detective who spends most of her time in THIS tome in The BookWorld, a fabulous and magical place where all of the world’s books exist as real live worlds that one can visit and inhabit, and where one can interact with their characters as real people.

Thursday has decided to spend a temporary exile in BookWorld, while she brings her pregnancy to term, visiting a nondescript crime thriller through the Character Exchange Program, and also working for Jurisfiction, the BookWorld policing agency. In the meantime, she is fighting to keep her memories of her husband, who was unjstly eradicated by the time traveling Chronoguard in the last episode. Highly recommended if you’ve read and enjoyed the two previous novels. But if you have, you certainly don’t need this recommendation.
