Reading Across the Country

Reading books one travel week at a time...
Lost in a Good Book - Jasper Fforde The Thursday Next series can be trying for readers who are not "well read" in terms of classic literature. However, for those of us who don't mind references to Kafka, Du Maurier and Hardy - the books are a pleasure.

The second installment focuses on the aftermath of the events of 'The Eyre Affair' and the Goliath Corporation's displeasure with Thursday. I enjoyed this book because of the introduction of Jurisfiction and the discovery that Thursday can "read" herself into books. However, unlike the first book, this one cannot stand alone. The entire plot has the feeling of being a bridge between novels. While I enjoy series, I do tend to favor those that can stand on their own.

Still, you have to love a book where there is a reference to prosecuting Max De Winter.....
