This is a reread for me, but it was just as good as the first time I read it. I also realized that I was mistaking Fforde's altered version of Jane Eyre for the real one. I, for a moment, thought that Jane actually went to India John Rivers, and then I saw the Masterpiece Theater movie version, and had to smack myself in the forehead.
I love this book. Fforde is extremely witty, and his subject is one that is close to my heart, so I'll always be in for reading his books. Thursday Next is a great character, a strong woman, with values, and she almost never relies on anyone else for anything. All the surrounding characters are flushed and wonderful, and the story never gets boring. I recommend this to anyone and everyone. Its a great story with loads of great little jokes.
