The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde

In this book, Thursday Next, is a literary detective that investigates missing and stolen pieces of literature. When someone steals Martin Chuzzlewit, the original manuscript by Charles Dickens, Thursday finds herself stuck in a deadly investigation unlike any she has ever had before. Thursday Next encounters many things in this altered reality including seeing her future self and experiencing a portal that her uncle invented that allows someone to open a doorway into literature.

I ended up not reading the book to the end, which really upsets me because I wanted to like it so bad. It was good, but not enough that I wanted to read it until it was over. I really liked the altered reality and how it was different from what I heard the ’80s was like. (Spoiler Alert) I also liked how in this reality Jane didn’t see Mr. Rochester at the end of Jane Eyre, so she changed the ending while she was in the story.

I may try to read it again at a different time because the concept is awesome and I’d like to make it through the whole book.
