Reading Jasper Fforde

Well actually this 2nd book in the fantastic Thursday Next series – Lost in a Good Book. The first one ‘The Eyre Affair’ had her jumping into Jane Ayre and changing the ending for the better! A kind of parallel world where The Crimean War is still going on, Mammouths roam the streets, Dodos have been cloned and there is a tax on cheese! Fforde is an extremely inventive writer, and this book is filled with endless ingenious references, asides, and plays on words. A kind of Hitch Hikers Guide detective novel I suppose. I’m on to the next book – Lost in a Good Book. Read more here.
