Lost in a Good Book

Lost in a Good Book (Thursday Next #2)
by Jasper Fforde
Penguin Books, 2004 399 pgs. Science Fiction
In this, the second of the Tuesday Next series of novels, our hero is thrust into another series of troubles with Goliath, a nefarious multinational corporation, and the Chronoguard, who continue their hunt down of Tuesday’s time travelling father. Tuesday is blackmailed into releasing the villain of The Eyre Affair, who is trapped within the pages of Poe’s The Raven. In order to thwart her enemies and get her time eradicated husband back, Tuesday is apprenticed to Miss Havisham of Great Expectations fame. As with the Eyre Affair, this is a fun, fast paced adventure, chock full of humor and sprinkled throughout with delightful literary references. Fforde is the Douglas Adams for English majors everywhere.
