What Douglas Adams did for Sci-fi and Terry Pratchett does for fantasy, Jasper Fforde does for the thriller mystery genre. Set in an alternate world where literature is taken much more seriously than our own, The Eyre Affair follows the exploits of Thursday Next, a LiteraTech operative. It's filled with action, references to classic literature, and a sense of whimsy that just makes the book (and the series) fun to read.
