Book #32: The Well of Lost Plots

I started this book at the end of 2017 – it took me six months to get through it, but I finally did. I began it during my winter slump, and it just wasn’t til June that it piqued my interest again. I’m glad I didn’t give up on it – some books just have to be at the right time. The Well of Lost Plots is book three in Jasper Fforde’s imaginative literature-based Thursday Next Series. This book takes place entirely inside the fictional world. Thursday has escaped to the Well of Lost Plots, where unpublished novels reside, for some respite. But things aren’t as quiet as she’d hoped, and she has to help Jurisfiction save the manufacturing and crafting of fiction. Full of literary allusions and wry wit, this one was a bit slower than the first two – probably one reason it took me a while to get interested in it. But in a series of seven books, there’s bound to be a low point or two. I look forward to reading the next in line.
