Jasper Fforde has an elegant flow and use of English language and a brilliant imagination. The alternate world that he has created with the ‘Thursday Next’ series took me completely by surprise. It has been on my to be read shelf for over a year and it was only after I read a review by Christopher Moore that I decided that now is the time for me to read this story.

Jasper Fforde takes the reader on a literary journey through all the classics and provides a different view and spin with them. I have never been able to read Jane Eyre but after the adventures that Thursday Next takes within the story it is being moved up in my reading list.

The Eyre Affair has everything from time travel, adventure, mystery, romance, comedy and honesty. It is because of this and the depth of the story that I gave it 5 Stars. I also started to read the second novel in the series ‘ Lost in a Good Book’ immediately after finishing which is always a good sign.
