The Eyre Affair
- By: Jasper Fforde
- Narrated by: Gabrielle Kruger
- Length: 9 hrs and 10 mins
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.

I thoroughly enjoyed this fast-paced, very funny & extremely well-read novel (wonderful voice acting, with multiple characters and even international accents) . Full to the brim with witty references to the classics of western literature. I can see why it was so highly recommended.
