Eyre Affair/Fforde, Jasper/Paper/034073356X/S032-A
With the wit and imagination of Lewis Carroll, and the ability to grip the reader from the start, Jasper Fforde has written a richly imaginative, hilarious, and poignant novel.
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 policemen 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.
