The Eyre Affair (Thursday Next, Book 1) The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’ve had this book for about 18 months - it was a thankyou gift from a friend who stayed with us for a while. I can’t believe I never read it until now!

It was very fun, very lit-geek. I loved the way the characters were named, although I’m sure I missed a lot of the more subtle connections. I ended up so entranced that I read the whole thing - beginning to end in a day.

    I loved loved LOVED this book! It spoke to my inner Literary Geek (who shares space with my inner Yarn Geek). I recommend the sequels as well. Each book builds on the previous, so it pays to read them in order.

    I think the rate you are devouring books you’ll be on more than 52 books in 52 weeks!
