Thursday Next

In case you are looking for good stories to read I can recommend Jasper Fforde’s Thursday Next novels. They are set in an alternate reality where England is a republic, Operation Sea Lion was a success for the Germans, and England was occupied and liberated. Thursday is a Literary Detective battling characters from novels who enter reality and individuals who want to change the plot of their favourite book. Literature itself is much more complicated than in our world and it is more more valued and important. Fforde’s writing style is brilliant. The world he created has so many facets that exploring the novels is great fun.
