Eyre Affair

I just finished reading this book by jasper Fforde and it was such a brilliant book. It was clever and funny. I loved all the literary connections. It was fun recognising characters and pieces from other books that I had read. This book is the first in a series. It is about Thursday Next who is investigating a criminal who has begun to kidnap characters from books and thus changing the books forever. The latest character to be kidnapped is Jane Eyre and it is up to Thursday to return her to the book unharmed otherwise it would finish without her. We learn that the world between fiction and reality is thinner than we thought and some are capable of moving in and out of it. If you want an intelligent book to read with some humour then this is it. I would recommend that Jane Eyre fans give it a go.
