A quirky reality
I joined a local bookclub and bought the September selection, The Eyre Affair, not thinking I'd enjoy it as much as I did. I started it on my flight to Savannah and finished it on my Amtrak to DC (don't ask).
It's a well-written story that sucks you into this alternate reality of progress and the future. I'm going to run out tonight to buy Jane Eyre. I think I would have had a greater appreciation for the hijinks in the story had I read Charlotte Bronte's masterpiece first.
Jasper Fforde is on my list for writers to watch out for!
