When soon-to-be single parent Thursday Next emerges from her comfortable life inside an unpublished book, she steps into a new age of fictional narrative. The entire book world is abuzz with anticipation of an improved Text Operating System that moves from the 8-plot to the new 32-plot story system. But danger lurks when Jurisfiction agents keep turning up dead. When Thursday steps in, she encounters Dickens' Miss Havisham, passes through Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights, and deals with a mispeling vyrus, holesmiths, and unionized nursery rhymes. The well of lost plots--the place where all fiction is created--is an exhilarating romp through literary classics, an insightful look into how books are made, and a jewel in the long tradition of British nonsense.… (mere)

    Who's Afraid of Beowulf? af Tom Holt (Dr.Science)
    Dr.Science: The English author Tom Holt is relatively unknown in America, but very popular in England. If you enjoy Jasper Fforde or Christopher Moore you will most certainly enjoy Tom Holt's wry sense of English humor and the absurd.

Insane to the point of, "How on earth did that even hold together?" But held together beautifully. An excellent read. ( )

This series keeps getting more and more odd, yet I still find myself gamely reading on through. I find the concepts interesting, but there are so many characters and plots and bits of technobabble all thrown together that it's a bit of a struggle to figure out what is happening to the main plot.

Has there ever been a more aptly titled novel? Fforde, in the third novel following protagonist,Thursday Next, has created an extraordinary place, the BookWorld, where all books are created and all their characters exist, from the humblest generic pizza delivery boy to the greatest Troubled Romantic Leads. Part of this amazing feat of imagination, which has been thought out very carefully and in impressive detail, is the Well of Lost Plots, where new books are manufactured and unpublished works exist.

Not as strong as the others, so far, but perked up a little at the end :) ( )

In Lost in a Good Book and The Well of Lost Plots, Fforde gets a bit bogged down in all the details of the fictional universe.
tilføjet af Katya0133 | RedigerYale Review, David Galef (Oct 1, 2008)
 
Fforde's third novel featuring English sleuth Thursday Next is an interesting, enjoyable mix of detective story, fantasy, and literature.
tilføjet af Katya0133 | RedigerSchool Library Journal, Ted Westervelt (Jun 1, 2004)
 
Like anchovies, Wagner, and Helmut Newton: will greatly appeal to people with unusual tastes--and befuddle everyone else.
tilføjet af Katya0133 | RedigerKirkus Reviews (Feb 23, 2004)
 
Fforde has settled comfortably into series mode, producing another fun romp in an alternate universe where books are more real than reality.
tilføjet af Katya0133 | RedigerLibrary Journal, Devon Thomas (Jan 15, 2004)
 
Fforde's sidesplitting sendup of an increasingly antibookish society is a sheer joy.
tilføjet af Katya0133 | RedigerPublishers Weekly, Jeff Zaleski (Dec 15, 2003)

...First there was OralTrad, upgraded ten thousand years later by the rhyming (for easier recall) OralTradPlus. For thousands of years this was the only Story Operating System and it is still in use today. The system branched in two about twenty thousand years ago ; on one side with CaveDaubPro) forerunner of PaintplusV2.3, GrecianUrnV1.2 SculptMarble V1.4 and the latest all encompassing SuperArtisticExpression-5). The other strand, the Picto-Phonetic Storytelling Systems, started with ClayTablet V2.1 and went through several competing systems (WaxTablet, Papyrus, VelliumPlus before merging into the award winning SCROLL, which was upgraded eight times to V3.3 before being swept aside by the all-new and clearly superior BOOK V1. Stable, easy to store and transport, compact and with a workable index, BOOK led the way for nearly eighteen hundred years...
'Good. Item seven. The had had and that that problem. Lady Cavendish, weren't you working on this?' // Lady Cavendish stood up and gathered her thoughts. // 'Indeed. The use of had had and that that has to be strictly controlled; they can interrupt the ImaginoTransference quite dramatically, causing readers to go back over the sentence in confusion, something we try to avoid.' // 'Go on.' // 'It's mostly an unlicensed usage problem. At the last count David Copperfield alone had had had had sixty-three times, all but then unapproved. Pilgrim's Progress may also be a problem owing to its had had / that that ratio.' // 'So what's the problem in Progress?' // 'That that had that that ten times but had had had had only thrice. Increased had had usage had had to be overlooked but not if the number exceeds that that that usage.' // 'Hmm,' said the Bellman. 'I thought had had had had TGC's approval for use in Dickens? What's the problem?' // 'Take the first had had and that that in the book by way of example,' explained Lady Cavendish. 'You would have thought that that first had had had had good occasion to be seen as had, had you not? Had had had approval but had had had not; equally it is true to say that that that that had had approval but that that other that that had not.' // 'So the problem with that other that that was that--?' // 'That that other-other that that had had approval.' // 'Okay,' said the Bellman, whose head was in danger of falling apart like a chocolate orange, 'let me get this straight: David Copperfield, unlike Pilgrim's Progress, which had had had, had had had had. Had had had had TGC's approval?' // There was a very long pause. // 'Right,' said the Bellman with a sigh. 'That's it for the moment...'
"Well, Mother was very upset about it and I think you should apologize."
"Okay, next time -- wait a moment, I'm dead -- I can't apologize to anyone. You apologize for me."
"Accept with good grace that which is given with good grace."
