Product description

Review

What Fforde is pulling is a variation on the classic Monty Python gambit: the incongruous juxtaposition og low comedy and high erudition - this scam has not been pulled off with such off-hand finesse and manic verve since the Pythons shut up shop. 'The Eyre Affair' is a silly book for smart people: postmodernism played as raw, howling farce - Independent

It is always a privilege to watch the birth of a cult, and Hodder has just cut the umbilical cord. Always ridiculous, often hilarious ... blink and you miss a vital narrative leap. There are shades of Douglas Adams, Lewis Carroll, 'Clockwork Orange' and '1984'. And that's just for starters - Time Out

Ingenious - I'll watch Jasper Fforde nervously - Terry Pratchett

Surely a cult in the making - Marie Clare

Book Description

The Eyre Affair is Jasper Fforde's first novel, and the debut of a fresh and delightfully original new voice.
