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.

The Eyre Affair por Jasper Fforde (2001)

Adicionado recentemente porLadyLudovica, coffeymuse, MorbidLibrarian, biblioteca privada, mbedwards83, Rennie80, sophch, BookNeurd
  1. 422
    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: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch por Terry Pratchett (flonor)
  4. 145
    Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency por Douglas Adams (sanddancer)
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 40
    Libriomancer por Jim C. Hines (TomWaitsTables)
  8. 41
    The City of Dreaming Books por Walter Moers (ShelfMonkey)
  9. 74
    Shades of Grey por Jasper Fforde (shallihavemydwarf)
  10. 96
    Wuthering Heights por Emily Brontë (lauranav)
    lauranav: The Eyre Affair has a great scene of an anger management session in Wuthering Heights!
  11. 42
    The Thirteenth Tale por Diane Setterfield (norabelle414)
  12. 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.
  13. 11
    Schrödinger's Ball por Adam Felber (fyrefly98)
  14. 00
    The Blackouts por Robert Brockway (TomWaitsTables)
  15. 00
    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.
  16. 00
    Beforelife por Randal Graham (ShelfMonkey)

    Never the Bride por Paul Magrs (jonathankws)
  18. 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)

    The D. Case: Or The Truth About The Mystery Of Edwin Drood por Carlo Fruttero (jonathankws)

    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...

Fabulous as always. I'm forging ahead in the series this time. Let's see what book #2 brings. ( )
  jamestomasino | Sep 11, 2021 |

My only feeling is why didn’t I read this book earlier. I only discovered this series a couple of weeks ago and when I finally read it, it was fantastic.

The book is set in London in 1985 but it technologically much more advanced. People have cloned versions of extinct animals as pets which are perfected with every version, England and Russia are in a century long war over the occupation of Crimea, a Special Operations (SpecOps) department called Chronoguard deals with time travel, temporal instabilities etc. Our protagonist Thursday Next works for SpecOps-27 as a LiteraTec (Literary detective) because in this world, books are valued a lot. Baconians go door-to-door trying to persuade people that Shakespeare didn’t write his plays, there is a militant Marlovian group that believes that the author is Kit Marlowe instead, each famous author has federations named after them with millions of followers.

It is in this world that an original Dickens manuscript is stolen by a most wanted criminal called Acheron Hades and Thursday investigates. Her uncle develops a Prose Portal using which you can jump into the world of any book and meet the living, breathing characters. When he is kidnapped by Hades, it is only a matter of time before a character from the Dickens manuscript is killed, which in turn removes the character from all the copies of the book in the world. But this is only the beginning and all hell breaks lose when Hades steals the original manuscript of Jane Eyre. In the course of negotiations, both Hades and Thursday end up jumping into the Jane Eyre world and it is here that Hades is finally defeated but not before the ending is changed dramatically (which is what we now know).

The book is so much fun, especially for book worms like me. There are a lot of literary references in the book, some of which I didn’t know but was able to find out. The Prose Portal is a wonderful idea and any number of readers will want to visit the worlds of their favorite books. The only slight disappointment was with the motivation of Hades. A genius who believed that before his intellect, the whole world looks infested with cretins ends up just wanting to earn money. His character warranted a little more ambition than just plain old greed. But on the whole, this is an awesome world and I am all excited to be a part of Thursday’s adventures in the next books. ( )

A booky romp! It was a fun genre mashup. What an embarrassment of riches, I'm sure I missed plenty of gags while enjoying the ones I caught. ( )
  Je9 | Aug 10, 2021 |
I was disappointed by this book. The premise had such promise. But rather than literary wit, it offers literary (and not-so-literary) gags. It lacks the charm and depth of, say, a Douglas Adams or Christopher Moore novel. An entertaining read, but I won't be reading the others in the series. ( )
  Charon07 | Jul 16, 2021 |
Thursday Next's England has magic and imagination, but I was disappointed overall. The basic plot is that an evil guy, aptly named Archeron Hades, has stolen a Dickens manuscript and is changing the book by removing characters. There was also some significant interaction with the characters in Jane Eyre. Creative, right? Lead character, Thursday Next, is a special operative in the literary division. Her co-workers and family, especially her time-travelling father, minister brother, and inventor uncle were fun, but her romantic interlude was dreadful. There were too many characters and the pace was too slow. My favorite parts were the weekly drama performances of Richard III in Swindon, with audience participation (think Rocky Horror Picture Show), and I liked the sophomoric character names, like Jack Schitt and Paige Turner. I will look to other Fforde books, bot this series. ( )

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.
