The Woman Who Died A Lot, by Jasper Fforde

The Woman Who Died A Lot. Jasper Fforde. Book Review: Thursday is stuck in the real world, recuperating from some very painful injuries. But if anyone expected Thursday Next to take a vacation, they'll be sorely disappointed. With a new job, new allies, old enemies on the loose, and Goliath at her heels with an army of cheap clones, Thursday has her hands as full as ever. [Image: A woman, hands on hips. The back of her shirt reads 'Don't give me any of your shit— I'm a librarian.'] While I feel the book really suffers (humor-wise) in the lack of the Book World, and the various plotlines are a bit less engaging than usual, I appreciate Fforde's efforts to keep trying new things.

Good for: This book in the ongoing Thursday Next series is not as strong as the others, in my opinion, but fans will want to pick it up.

I've enjoyed the series so I'll probably read this just to keep up, but I will definitely miss Book World.
