Profile: Speculative Fiction, Series, Detective Novel
YOU SHOULD READ THIS BOOK. I don’t care if you end up not liking it or if you think I’m a crazy person. The Eyre Affair is worth the read. As a piece of fiction, it has some flaws and could certainly benefit from a stronger overall focus. But page for page, this is the most blisteringly original novels that isn’t in the deep end of the Sci-Fi pool. Jasper Fforde’s remarkable version of 1985’s England is worthy of note by itself, but it’s the whole package that makes The Eyre Affair an absolute must-read.
