[Jasper Fforde] Lost in a Good Book [zombies Book] ePUB

Jasper Fforde ↠ 1 READ

Hat begins on her own doorstep It seems that Landen her husband actually drowned. Maybe only a 35 star but it was another fun trip into such a strange world filled with literary references slippery characters murder mayhem There s plenty of wry humor puns ridiculous situations to make sure things don t get too serious I d call it a cozy mystery except that belies just how fantastic the world is there is no way the reader can figure out what is going to happen I sometimes wonder if the author knows He writes the way Mrs Haversham Yes the lady from Great Expectations drives with complete abandon sheer joy It s a mixed up muddled up shook up world except for Lola Thursday Oh oh Lola Thursday OK I ll uit singing now but if this series had a theme song that wouldn t be a bad oneIt was a bit uneven but I put that down to the high points striking me as so funny There s a great scene at a book sale for instance I didn t uit chuckling for several minutes Reminded me of the time I stood in line at 5am in 20 degree darkness to get Ghost Buster backpacks for the boys for Xmas That was 30 years ago so I can laugh about it now The savagery of mostly mothers on the prowl was shocking a lot of fun to watch once I got the backpacks of course Very well narrated which added to the atmosphere I m definitely up for another at some point

SUMMARY Lost in a Good Book

Lost in a Good Book

In an accident when he was two years old Someone somewhere sometime is responsibl. I really really liked this seuel I liked the first book in this series but I thought this one was incredible I felt like this one really drove home the bookish element to this series that the first one only touched on Some of my favorite parts about this book was the book jumping the conversations in the footnotes all the bootstrap paradoxes and this books funny self awareness In the last book we got a glimpse of Thursdays power to jump into the events of any book but it wasn t the main plot line In this book we really get to see how it all worked and I loved the imagery of a library that contains every book ever written as well as every idea for a book I would love to just go hang out there for a while I really liked the way the characters developed in this book Last book I found the characters to be interesting but they didn t really grab me and I was way interested in the alternate world the author created and not so much the characters In this seuel I loved all the characters just as much as I loved the world building I also enjoyed the mystery of this book a little than the last one and I like seeing the Goliath Corporation take of a front seat as the villain of these stories Speaking of Goliath my book had a little approval rating at the front of the book from Goliath which I thought was really cute and I love when books have those sort of things in them I also loved how there were parts of this book that tied it to the titles of the previous books and to the seuels And on top of that any book is made better in my mind with uotes at the beginnings of chapters I loved this book a lot and to be honest I was a little surprised at that because the first one to me was good but not great This book definitely convinced me to pick up the next book in this serious and I would enchorage anyone who read the the first book and liked the concept but thought some of the delivery was only meh to definitely try this one because I think this one is a great seuel and a great improvement over the first one and I hope I like the next detective Next book as much as I liked this one

Thursday Next literary detective and newlywed is back to embark on an adventure t. The idea of parallel universes alternate timelines uchronias is an often used trope but in this constellation and with the interconnections and dependencies on and in the real book world and the not any so just fictional second world it gives the idea a whole new dimensionIt s close to a literary and sociological experiment to integrate the worldview mentality history of the time the novels were created and how they influenced the awareness about those times and how novels are than just entertainment but studies about different times of human history of changing morality genre pictures true crime history distilled on pagesThe authors influence reaches a whole new dimension if one sees fictional works not just as something existing in the writers and readers mind but as real and true worldbuilding a kind of superpower to construct new worlds the ultimate mind over matter proof the option to be a creator of fictional universes for everybodyTime travel split up personalities that could develop in different directions criticism of cartels one world trying to take over the other exaggeration of many character tropes evil powers trying to destroy one of the worlds or subjects in it there is so much hidden in this universe that it s difficult to get it all in just one read It s one of the greatest love letters to reading and literature in general tooI imagine that a series like this could go on close to forever because the options are on the table and there is not just all literature ever written but everything published this day not to mention new forms of art such as video games and the good old buddies movies and series that are now having a renaissance thanks to VR and AR An expanded satire universe like this would be something I want to totally get lost in Tropes show how literature is conceptualized and created and which mixture of elements makes works and genres uniue
