Thursday Next: First Among Sequels by Jasper Fforde
Thursday Next: First Among Sequels brings back Thursday Next, who, as far as her family knows, is now working in the carpet business. The carpet company, though, is just a front for her continuing Jurisfiction work in BookWorld. It's a world where time and history are elastic and Thursday must prevent chaos within the literary world. Assassins are trying to kill her, the Thursday Nexts from the previous novels are trying to change places with her, The Goliath Corporation wants to turn books into tourist traps and change literature into reality shows, the government is running a high Stupidity Surplus, and her teenage son's unwillingness to shower might have global implications. It's classic Jasper Fforde and Thursday Next: First Among Sequels has received positive reviews with the San Francisco Chronicle saying, "It's an ingenious premise that makes for a thrill ride of a read. And it's not entirely necessary - though perhaps more fun - to read the books in the proper order. Fforde gives enough background in Thursday Next to inform readers of all they need to know to find both books hilarious, exhilarating and just a bit exhausting."
