I'm ashamed to say that i'd never read this classic, and after reading my first Jasper Fforde "The Eyre Affair" I felt compelled to read the original Eyre.

I have to say, I really enjoyed "Jane Eyre". I knew fragments of the story...but the book was gripping and I had to keep reading!! In "the Eyre Affair" Fforde talks about two endings and the fact that the literary detective Thursday Next changes the story. I'm even more ashamed to say that I thought the true ending was the one where Jane travels to india with her cousin. I was delighted to discover that the novel does get a true happy ending...

This has inspired me to seek out other classics I should have read, and to put my pride to one side! I'm going to re-read the Jasper Fforde books and then I'm going to set myself the:

Thursday Next Reading Challenge (consisting of all the classics which pop up in the 4 books!)

* Jane Eyre
* Martin Chuzzlewit
