llp/gentlyfalling’s CBR III Review 11: The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde

The Eyre Affair, by Jasper Fforde, is a mystery/fantasy/literary humour rich book set in England in an alternative version of the 1980s. England is virtually run by a megacorporation called Goliath, at war with Russia over the Crimea, at odds with a separate and socialist Wales, and has a Special Operations Network with Divisions that are in charge of regulating time, literature and supernatural being. It is a very different England, but classic English literature is the same but taken very, very seriously. I was led to this book by a review here, of a later book in the series. My review of the debut novel in the series is available here.
