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.

A captivating read -

Whilst there are no mythical creatures or aliens, if you hate the likes of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett this is not the book for you! If, however, you enjoy immersing yourself in a book where you have to suspend your disbelief, The Eyre Affair is a captivating read. It's a quirky crime novel; not so much sci-fi as a bizarre twist on what a parallel world could be like. A world in which it'€™s normal to travel by airship from London to Swindon and where the dodo has been brought back from extinction and makes a really friendly pet. An original and fun read, I'll be joining the literary detective Thursday Next in Jasper Fforde'€™s second book in the series, Lost in a Book!
