Publisher's Summary

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.


What the Critics Say

"What Fforde is pulling is a variation on the classic Monty Python gambit: the incongruous juxtaposition of low comedy and high erudition - this scam has not been pulled off with such off-hand finesse and manic verve since the Pythons shut up shop. 'The Eyre Affair'is a silly book for smart people: postmodernism played as raw, howling farce." (Independant)

That's it for me, I'm out.

I agree with other people’s assessment that this was a great idea with a lousy execution. I had a lot of difficulties following the plot, it felt all over the place to me; just as I was getting into it, it would veer off on another tangent.

I’m disappointed because the premise really was interesting! I won’t be sticking with this series.
