Book Reviews, Literary News, and Thoughts on Life
Jasper Fforde offers something for every reader in The Well of Lost Plots, the third book in his bestselling Thursday Next series.
The former Spec-Ops Literary Detective has found sanctuary within the pages of the unpublished police procedural Caversham Heights as a part of the Character Exchange program, allowing her to lay low until the birth of her child. Of course, trouble seems to plague Thursday wherever she goes. She must battle her memory-modifying nemesis, Aornis Hades, before she forgets her eradicated husband and the father of her child, and discover who is behind the grusome deaths of numerous Jurisfiction agents. The fate of the Book World is on her shoulders . . .
Fans of mystery, fantasy and classic literature alike will be transfixed by the escapades of unflappable Thursday and the supporting cast of delightfully quirky fictional characters. Fforde’s clever mix of word play, parody and social satire will have readers laughing out loud and clamoring for more.
