Lost in a Good Book

Categories: [ Books/Thursday Next ]

ISBN: 9780340733578

© Amazon.fr

Following her success in The Eyre Affair, Thursday is forced to do PR for SpecOps, but she is prohibited to tell the truth about the role of Jack Schitt, the Goliath Corporation agent. She investigates the sudden discovery of a lost Shakespeare play that falls into the hands of the leader of the Whig party who uses it to increase his chances of becoming Prime Minister. Thursday's father also tells her that the World is going to end very soon, being entirely covered with an unknown pink substance. Over the course of several weeks, Thursday finds herself repeatedly in situations where an impossibly large number of coincidences almost succeed in getting her killed, while her hierarchy is trying to find an excuse to arrest her. Then one day she discovers that her husband Landen has been erased out of her history by corrupt chonoguards working for Schitt's half-brother Schitt-Hawse. The latter blackmails Thursday into freeing Schitt from the poem where he's kept prisoner. In the absence of her uncle who had invented the Prose Portal, the only way she knows to enter a story is Mrs Nakajima whom she had met in Jane Eyre. Thursday looks for her in Okinawa where she finds Nakajima's travel book, allowing her to travel on her own into a story. There she is chosen to become a member on Jurisfiction, an organization that ensures the stability of worlds of literary fiction. Thursday becomes an apprentice to Great Expectations' Mrs Havisham, one of the best Jurisfiction agents. After a failed attempt by her father to prevent Landen's death as a child, Thursday fetches Schitt and is kidnapped by Schitt-Hawse, but is rescued by Mrs Havisham. They then prove that the Shakespeare play was taken from Jurisfiction's library of lost books, and that the Whig politician is actually a fictional character, who is arrested too. She then discovers that the coincidences that almost got her killed have been provoked by Hades' sister Aornis who wants revenge for her brother's death, by putting Thursday in a situation where she would prevent the end of the world (by being covered in out-of-control, self-replicating Dream Topping, invented by her cousin) if she commits suicide. Thursday is saved in the nick of time by an old version of her father who takes the self-replicating stuff to the down of time, where it becomes the beginning of life on Earth. Thursday then goes into hiding into a book from the library of lost books.

Monsieur Hulot est le dessinateur d'un petit camping car ā base de Renault 4L que l'entreprise Altra veut présenter ā un salon de l'auto ā Amsterdam. Il accompagne le camping car, transporté dans un vieux camion. Parti avec un peu de retard, le camion souffre de tous les problčmes possibles (pneu ā plat, panne d'essence, problčme de moteur). Maria, chargée des relations publiques, tente de faire arriver le véhicule ā temps pour le salon, mais son empressement ā passer la frontičre entre la Belgique et les Pays-Bas fait arręter le camion par les douanes, oų les fonctionnalités surréalistes du camping car sont présentées aux douaniers. Peu aprčs avoir été libérés par la police , un accident de la route provoqué par Maria force le camion ā s'arręter chez un garagiste des Pays-Bas pour réparer une bosse ā l'avant du camping car. Le camion arrive finalement ā Amsterdam aprčs la fin du salon de l'auto, et Monsieur Hulot rentre seul, tandis que le camping car intéresse les passants ā l'extérieur du hall de l'exposition.
