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 de 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
    O Guia do Mochileiro das Galáxias de 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
    Belas Maldições de Terry Pratchett (flonor)
  4. 145
    Agência de Investigações Holísticas Dirk Gently de Douglas Adams (sanddancer)
  5. 104
    Shades of Grey de Jasper Fforde (shallihavemydwarf)
  6. 83
    To Say Nothing of the Dog de 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 de 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 de Jim C. Hines (TomWaitsTables)
  9. 96
    Wuthering Heights de 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 de Walter Moers (ShelfMonkey)
  11. 20
    Just One Damned Thing After Another de 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 de Diane Setterfield (norabelle414)
  13. 10
    The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep de 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 de 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 de Robert Brockway (TomWaitsTables)
  16. 00
    Beforelife de Randal Graham (ShelfMonkey)
  17. 11
    Schrödinger's Ball de Adam Felber (fyrefly98)
  18. 00
    The Library of the Unwritten de A. J. Hackwith (bonne1978)
  19. 22
    Who's Afraid of Beowulf? de 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 de Carlo Fruttero (jonathankws)

C (Indifferent).

A cop pursues a magical person (Possibly a demon? That's never mentioned.) who threatens to re-write literary classics. Not much happens with the plot (they do eventually go into Jane Eyre, almost as an afterthought), but there is some random, aggressively quirky addition to the setting every few pages. People who like this book praise the worldbuilding. This is not worldbuilding; it's brainstorming.

Imaginative, dry humor. Braxton Hicks made me grin every time he appeared. Not a particular Jane Eyre fan, but enjoyed the book tremendously anyway. ( )

Supposed to be hilarious, but after 165 pages I hadn't even smiled, so I guess I just don't get it. Recommended by at least one reader for those who like "humor, mysteries, sci-fi, fantasy, literature & language" -- all of which I like, but it didn't seem to help. ( )
  Abcdarian | May 18, 2024 |
This book was downright insulting to one's intelligence. Amateurish, pretentious garbage -- Fforde thinks highly of his own humor and the condescending tone of the heroine grates immediately.

The plot is awful, the romance poorly wedged in, and every character is a cardboard cutout. The pity is, this book had potential and was squandered on literary tricks and cheap gimmicks. For shame, for shame! ( )

I've had this book on my ereader for ages. So many friends have recommended this series and while I've read other books by Fforde I hadn't gotten around to starting this series.

Based on the recommendations from friends I was pretty sure I'd love it and I was right. It's different, it's funny, it's imaginative, it's a little weird but in a great way and I'm looking forward to continuing with the series.

1985 alternate history set in the UK. Things are very different. Pet dodos are common now that they've been regenerated (some versions are better than others). The Crimean War has still not ended and Wales is a socialist state. That's just the beginning

Thursday Next works for the Special Operations branch of Literary Detectives (LiteraTecs) who deal with literary crime. This is definitely a series for book lovers. She's on the trail of Archeron Hades a villainous mastermind who is stealing original literary manuscripts and altering them by entering the stories and removing characters.

It's a whirlwind mix of science fiction, fantasy, and literary history and I loved it. ( )

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.
adicionado 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.
adicionado 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

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.
