The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde

The first novel about Thursday Next, the LiteraTec. (She investigates crimes against literature.) There's some really good ideas in this book (like imagining a world so in love with literature that pretty much everyone is arguing over who really wrote Shakespeare's plays) but it seemed like there was just too much, it was starting to stretch credulity. (AND dodos have been brought back? AND the Crimea war is still going on?)

Hmmm, don't know what else to think about the book. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't all that great either.

Next: Beautiful Darkness or Cherie Priest's Boneshaker
