Book 2 of the Thursday Next Series follows newly wed Thursday Next as she tries to save the world from being reduced to a pink blob as well as the pressure of the Goliath foundation to free Smith by holding her husband hostage in time (eradication-wise) Also a new unpublished work of Shakespeare seems to have come up and we welcome Dicken's Miss Haversham as Tuesday's mentor as she gets ready to delve in the book-world. The Cheshire cat being the librarian is so cute. I enjoyed this book. It kind of acts as a prelude to the next book in a way. You get more into the character of Thursday Next in this one so still a must read.
