Book #34: Lost in a Good Book

Lost in a Good Book by Jasper Fforde is the second book in his Thursday Next series. Just like the first, it is a wonderfully clever, zany, and hilarious adventure through alternate reality Great Britain where revived dodos are the common pets, time travel is standard, and literature is the most prized part of culture. While again battling the evil Goliath Corporation, Thursday is recruited as a Prose Resource Operative in Jurisfiction, the agency within books that protect our beloved stories from any tampering or rewriting, while she also tries to save the world from ending. It is such a fun read full of puns, wordplay, and literary allusions, and I look forward to getting the next installment.
