There is another 1985, somewhere in the could-have-been, where dodos are regenerated in home-cloning kits and everyone is disappointed by the ending of Jane Eyre. But in this world there are policemen who can travel across time, a Welsh republic - and a woman called Thursday Next.
  1. 432
    Jane Eyre por Charlotte Brontë (Kerian)
    Kerian: If for some reason you read The Eyre Affair without having read Jane Eyre, I definitely recommend it. It will certainly be interesting to read and is a very good book.
  2. 2710
    The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy por Douglas Adams (coliemta)
    coliemta: One's more literary and the other more science-fiction-y, but they're both bizarre, hilarious and similar in feel. Most people who like one will enjoy the other.
  3. 162
    Good Omens por Terry Pratchett (flonor)
  4. 145
    Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency por Douglas Adams (sanddancer)
  5. 104
    Shades of Grey por Jasper Fforde (shallihavemydwarf)
  6. 83
    To Say Nothing of the Dog por Connie Willis (simon_carr)
    simon_carr: Similar light hearted style and 'book travelling' rather than time travelling but chances are if you like one then you'll like the other.
  7. 50
    Aberystwyth Mon Amour por Malcolm Pryce (ten_floors_up)
    ten_floors_up: This and the other books in the Aberystwyth series share a specifically British alternative universe, and a dollop of entertainingly twisted literary pastiche.
  8. 40
    Libriomancer por Jim C. Hines (TomWaitsTables)
  9. 96
    Wuthering Heights por Emily Brontë (lauranav)
    lauranav: The Eyre Affair has a great scene of an anger management session in Wuthering Heights!
  10. 41
    The City of Dreaming Books por Walter Moers (ShelfMonkey)
  11. 20
    Just One Damned Thing After Another por Jodi Taylor (SimoneA)
    SimoneA: While one is about travelling through time and the other about travelling through books, the atmosphere of these book (series) is very similar, with a strong female lead and a crazy set of side characters.
  12. 42
    The Thirteenth Tale por Diane Setterfield (norabelle414)
  13. 10
    The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep por H. G. Parry (timtom)
    timtom: If you wish more literary characters escaped the pages of their books to mingle in our own contemporary reality, head to Wellington, New Zealand where Dickensian villains might just about destroy everything...
  14. 21
    The Manual of Detection por Jedediah Berry (Katie.Loughlin)
    Katie.Loughlin: The two books have very similar flavor, but The Manual of Detection is a darker fantasy novel.
  15. 00
    The Blackouts por Robert Brockway (TomWaitsTables)
  16. 00
    Beforelife por Randal Graham (ShelfMonkey)
  17. 11
    Schrödinger's Ball por Adam Felber (fyrefly98)
  18. 00
    The Library of the Unwritten por A. J. Hackwith (bonne1978)
  19. 22
    Who's Afraid of Beowulf? por Tom Holt (Dr.Science)
    Dr.Science: The English author Tom Holt is relatively unknown in America, but very popular in England. If you enjoy Jasper Fforde or Christopher Moore you will most certainly enjoy Tom Holt's wry sense of English humor and the absurd. He has written a number of excellent books but they will be difficult to find at your library.… (mais)
  20. 11
    The D. Case: Or The Truth About The Mystery Of Edwin Drood por Carlo Fruttero (jonathankws)

Fun because it's set in an alternate 1985, where the Crimean War is still going on and state operatives defend and protect literary works. Thursday Next is very much like Kinsey Milhone of the Sue Grafton books - irreverent, fearless, and lucky. The author uses a lot of literary jokes and even has an audience-cast Richard III play to a house of Rocky Horror-like fans who join in and heckle. It's science fiction too, because owning an original manuscript and controlling a new technology make it possible to change everyone's copy of the book forever, by changing the story. There's also a running gag about who wrote Shakespeare's works, and even a romance. ( )

It takes a few chapters to warm up to this weird, witty world, but once you get there, it's awesome. I'm not sure whether to call it sci-fi, fantasy, or alternate reality, but if you majored in English literature and/or love Bronte, Shakespeare, and Dickens, you will mostly likely love up on this, whatever genre it is. Stupendous! ( )
  LibrarianDest | Jan 3, 2024 |
I didn’t know what to make of this unusual and sometimes confusing literary detective romp at first, but as the machinations of Fforde’s alternative, literature-driven universe began to slot into place and the adventure gathered pace, I couldn’t help but surrender to the nuttiness. Some slow bits along the way but, ultimately, a delightfully bonkers and inventive introduction to the Thursday Next series. ( )

Not perfect but good escapist fun. ( )

Fforde wears the marks of his literary forebears proudly on his sleeve, from Lewis Carroll and Wodehouse to Douglas Adams and Monty Python, in both inventiveness and sense of fun.
adicionada por Katya0133 | editarYale Review, David Galef (Oct 1, 2008)
 
Fforde delivers almost every sentence with a sly wink, and he's got an easy way with wordplay, trivia and inside jokes. ''The Eyre Affair'' can be too clever by half, and fiction like this is certainly an acquired taste, but Fforde's verve is rarely less than infectious.
 
A good editor might have trimmed away some of the annoying padding of this novel and helped the author to assimilate his heavy borrowings from other artists, but no matter: by the end of the novel, Mr. Fforde has, however belatedly, found his own exuberant voice.
 
THE EYRE AFFAIR is mostly a collection of jokes, conceits and puzzles. It's smart, frisky and sheer catnip for former English majors....And some of the jokes are clever indeed.
adicionada por Shortride | editarSalon, Laura Miller (Jan 24, 2002)
 
Dark, funny, complex, and inventive, THE EYRE AFFAIR is a breath of fresh air and easily one of the strongest debuts in years.

For my father
John Standish Fforde
1920-2000

Who never knew I was to be published but would have been most proud nonetheless
—and not a little surprised.

The barriers between reality and fiction are softer than we think; a bit like a frozen lake. Hundreds of people can walk across it, but then one evening a thin spot develops and someone falls through; the hole is frozen over by the following morning. (Victor to Thursday)
Governments and fashions come and go but Jane Eyre is for all time.
It was a glorious sunny day, and the airship droned past the small puffy clouds that punctuated the sky like a flock of aerial sheep.
He wore thick glasses and mismatched clothes and his face was a moonscape of healed acne.
"You shot him six times in the face."
The dying killer smiled.
"That I remember."
"Six times! Why?"
Felix7 frowned and started to shiver.
"Six was all I had," he answered simply.
