The Eyre Affair by Jasper Forde

I really liked this book and am glad that I finally read it. Let's get to my favorite part first: the names of the characters. When I came across the character Jack Schitt...well, I thought I was reading the last name incorrectly. (I wasn't :0) Then I came to Braxton Hicks and I laughed out loud. It was the play on words that was my favorite part!

This book introduces the character of Thursday Next who is a literary specops agent. She is set up against the evil Archeron Hades and the book is about her journey in trying to catch Hades. I thought that it was lots of fun to read and definitely something that is different from the norm. This book made me want to read Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte which is on my TBR list..I just haven't gotten to it yet. I think that I will bump it up and read it sooner rather than later. It was a fun read and I will definitely continue on with this series.

    I've already been looking up the next books in the series.

  2. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did!
