ALTERNATE COVER EDITION FOR 034073356X

There is another 1985, somewhere in the could-have-been, where the Crimean war still rages, dodos are regenerated in home-cloning kits and everyone is deeply disappointed by the ending of 'Jane Eyre'. In this world there are no jet-liners or computers, but there are policeman who can travel across time, a Welsh republic, a great interest in all things literary - and a woman called Thursday Next.

In this utterly original and wonderfully funny first novel, Fforde has created a fiesty, loveable heroine and a plot of such richness and ingenuity that it will take your breath away.

Many people seem to enjoy it including some of my friends, but I found it to be a little less than engaging and not much of a page-turner. Ironic, since there's a minor character actually na...

4.0 The Eyre Affair
This book throws right in so it took me a minute to get my bearings. It's in an alternate reality. Books are a huge deal. Parts can come to life. Throw in some time travel and comedy. There are murders and robberies. There are government agents trying to bring down criminals disrupting lives a...

4.0 The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde
That was a wild, wild romp. I have been meaning to dive into the Thursday Next series for years, and finally decided to take the plunge after MBD's review of the most recent installment in the series. I've read all of Fforde's Chronicles of Kazam, so I am familiar with his unique style, but even s...
