Thursday Next

In this sixth book in Jasper Fforde's "Thursday Next" series our title character has gone missing. Thursday has become quite famous in her world for having saved her nation from evil villains many time, so a novelist wrote a fictionalized books series about her, which has become wildly popular. As a result, there is now a Book World version of Thursday (remember that our protagonist can travel between her world and the Book World in which fictional characters live). The Book World Policing Agency call in the fictional version of Thursday to fill in as a detective while her counterpart is missing.

Because the "real" Thursday lives in a science fiction version of England, readers get to hear about scientists' cloning neanderthals, dodos and wooly mammoths, along with all the other interesting items that make Fforde's written universes so interesting.

Like many of the Thursday Next novels, this one has numerous references to literature, including Charles Dickens' novels. This is fun for those who majored in literature or English and like to feel good about their degrees.

The quality of the series deteriorates with each novel, yet I still enjoyed them and read the entire set.
