Intrepid literary detective Thursday Next is back in the second installment of Jasper Fforde's one-of-a-kind series. The inventive, exuberant, and totally original literary fun that began with The Eyre Affair continues with Jasper Fforde's magnificent second adventure starring the resourceful, fearless literary sleuth Thursday Next.

When Landen, the love of her life, is eradicated by the corrupt multinational Goliath Corporation, Thursday must moonlight as a Prose Resource Operative of Jurisfiction - the police force inside books. She is apprenticed to the man-hating Miss Havisham from Dickens's Great Expectations, who grudgingly shows Thursday the ropes. And she gains just enough skill to get herself in a real mess entering the pages of Poe's The Raven.

What she really wants is to get Landen back. But this latest mission is not without further complications.

Along with jumping into the works of Kafka and Austen, and even Beatrix Potter's The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies, Thursday finds herself the target of a series of potentially lethal coincidences, the authenticator of a newly discovered play by the Bard himself, and the only one who can prevent an unidentifiable pink sludge from engulfing all life on Earth.

    " Loved this one. Loved the Rocky Horror-esque production of Richard III (it starts with the audience yelling, "WHEN is the winter of our discontent?").

    If you love books, love reading, and enjoy humor, you'll likely enjoy the Thursday Next series. "

    " I think I know Thursday Next! This is fun to read and makes you think about literature and about the act of reading itself. The book takes some twists and surprised me in the end. Jasper Fforde makes the concept of book jumping seem real. It is isn't it? "
