The Eyre Affair
There is another 1985 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, and a woman called Thursday Next.

There are little things that make you think and take you away from your worries. Lead character called Thursday Next, the infiltration of a classic novel and an insight into bookworld. Can’t fail to entertain and distract.

I’m not usually a fan of parallel universe novels but I loved the humour and inventiveness of Fforde’s world and the character of Thursday Next.
