Jasper Fforde is a very unique writer, you really have to like this sort of thing. I only recommend him to certain people, but if you love the odd and unusual and have a good imagination you will love his writing. I would never recommend him to someone who doesn't like sci-fi, Monty Python or Douglas Adams. If you like any of the above, Fforde is for you.
Frances Barber is a great actress, but she can't do a Texas accent. It was very distracting listening to her try.
The story was not very well developed. The premise of the JFK assassination was flimsy, not much about it in the story. Not sure I can explain without spoilers sweetie; but clowns on another planet?
She does all the British accented characters very well, she just needs to stay away from Texas accents.
Overall I was disappointed in the story.
