Leaving Swindon behind her to hide out in the Well of Lost Plots (the place where all fiction is created), Thursday Next, Literary Detective and soon-to-be one parent family, ponders her next move from within an unpublished book of dubious merit entitled 'Caversham Heights'. Landen, her husband, is still eradicated, Aornis Hades is meddling with Thursday's memory, and Miss Havisham - when not sewing up plot-holes in 'Mill on the Floss' - is trying to break the land-speed record on the A409. But something is rotten in the state of Jurisfiction. Perkins is 'accidentally' eaten by the minotaur, and Snell succumbs to the Mispeling Vyrus. As a shadow looms over popular fiction, Thursday must keep her wits about her and discover not only what is going on, but also who she can trust to tell about it ... With grammasites, holesmiths, trainee characters, pagerunners, baby dodos and an adopted home scheduled for demolition, 'The Well of Lost Plots' is at once an addictively exciting adventure and an insight into how books are made, who makes them - and why there is no singular for 'scampi'.

    Who's Afraid of Beowulf? de 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. He has written a number of excellent books including Expecting Someone Taller, and Flying Dutch, but they may be difficult to find at your library or bookstore.… (més)

This was a bit of a disappointment. I really liked the first two in the series, because the pace was high and the stakes equally high. Here, the entire novel takes place in the bookworld and is a patchwork of numerous plotlines, none of which seems too dangerous (after all, it's all in the books, and not in real life). Also, Thursday's plot doesn't really move at all - as a character she only moves sideways throughout the story. The puns and wittiness have given way to pure "booktalk," which is humorous in the other books, but here there's so much of it that it just gets a bit tiring. I've heard that this is the "slow" one in the series and it'll pick back up after this, so I guess I'll keep reading. ( )

The Well of Lost Plots by Jasper Fforde (2004) ( )
  arosoff | Jul 10, 2021 |
In this installment of Thursday Next's adventures, she must defeat the forgetfulness that has plagued her since her battle with Hades's little sister. Each day in her new fictional job, she has to struggle to recall her husband's name or even that she has one.

I enjoyed this book quite a bit, although I'm getting a little impatient for her to rescue Landon already. ( )

Insane to the point of, "How on earth did that even hold together?" But held together beautifully. An excellent read. ( )
  wetdryvac | Mar 2, 2021 |
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.

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.
afegit per Katya0133 | editaYale 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.
afegit per Katya0133 | editaSchool 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.
afegit per Katya0133 | editaKirkus 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.
afegit per Katya0133 | editaLibrary Journal, Devon Thomas (Jan 15, 2004)
 
Fforde's sidesplitting sendup of an increasingly antibookish society is a sheer joy.

...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."
