Lost in a Good Book by Jasper Fforde

Lost in a Good Book, Thursday Next, first introduced in Jasper Fforde's The Eyre Affair, is back again as a literary detective. She lives in an alternative reality in 1980s Britain where people can travel through time and literature. Thursday's husband has been erased by a time travel trick by the evil Goliath Corporation. To save him, she must release the villain she imprisoned in Poe's poem "The Raven," but her uncle's prose portal is now off-limits. She becomes apprenticed to Miss Havisham of Great Expectations in the Jurisfiction division so she can learn to jump through books. It's a book full of whimsy, absurdity, and hilarity poking fun at life and literature. Jasper Fforde has been compared to Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett and the New Orleans Times-Picayune says of Lost in a Good Book, "Fforde's wicked humor and wide-ranging intelligence make every page a joy."
