When I began reading The Eyre Affair, I really had no idea what to expect. I had heard from many that Fforde's work illicited an extreme response . . . I would love or hate it. Here is a short list of what I personally discovered during my Next adventure:
- Fforde's wit is one I have never encountered before, but I enjoyed it very much. I often found myself chuckling out loud from passages, either at the time I was reading them or later when the humor dawned on me!
- I was inspired to read a few classics that I have previously had no desire to pick up, namely Jane Eyre.
- And, last but not least, I have found an author that I cannot wait to revisit! I would even consider the first in the Thursday Next series re-read worthy!
In short, Kristen has got me hooked on yet another author, and I can't wait to get Lost in a Good Book!
Have you been captivated and inspired by Fforde like I have? Or, would you rather pass?
