Moffat Books give away

A good read?

Moffat Book Events will be giving away copies of Jasper Fforde's 'The Eyre Affair' at various events around Moffat on World Book Day (the 23rd of April, for those of you not so in the loop). 
A little review of the book reads as follows:
"Fforde's heroine Thursday Next works as a literary detective, tracking down forgeries and unauthorised works in a world far more obsessed with literature than our own – though perhaps only slightly more concerned with piracy, now that we're in the age of digital publishing. It's a skewed, incongruous world, with crucial and often genuinely funny differences from the real one.
A particularly tricky case puts Thursday in the position of policing text itself, as she must prevent villainous Acheron Hades from kidnapping vital characters from literary classics. The adventure takes her through time, space and literature, as she discovers an unusual talent for actually entering the world of books, and eventually infiltrates Jane Eyre itself in order to save its central characters."
For the rest of the review head here
