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.Hide synopsis

Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next books are wonderfully engaging. The universe they are set in is wonderfully almost plausible. It wasn't written to be thoroughly realistic and convincing. I preferred it greatly over Hitchhiker's Guide because the humor in Eyre Affair is less slapstick and more intellectual ...
?The Eyre Affair? can be described as fantasy-SF-comic-literary-mystery-thriller; it is quite a mouthful, and perhaps Jasper Fforde has bitten off a little more than most people with moderate talent could effectively chew. The blurb compares this book to ?The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy?, but ...
The Eyre Affair is the first in a series of books about Thursday Next. It is one of the only books that I laugh aloud for. Jasper Fforde must be a man who loves words and literature - it seems like he enjoyed saturating these books with fun within the story line - he plays with words, grammar, names ...
