It’s another Thursday Next book!  I finished the second book of the series, Lost in a Good Book by Jasper Fforde, not too long ago.

It turns out that Thursday Next, despite being a literary detective, leads a very lively life.  After saving the world from the Big Bad and Benevolent(?) Corporation in the previous book, she…gets to do it all over again!  Huzzah!  Only this time, the world is really coming to an end, Benevolent(?) Corporation has proven itself to be not so benevolent, and the Big Bad is the same and not the same as the previous one who was destroyed.  And in the midst of all this, she has to defend herself in a court of Kafka’s making, is apprenticed to Miss Havisham, of Great Expectations fame, to become a literary detective from the other side, and move house.

She makes me want to be a literary detective as well…
