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. 422
    Jane Eyre av 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
    Liftarens guide till galaxen av 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
    Goda omen av Terry Pratchett (flonor)
  4. 145
    Dirk Gentlys holistiska detektivbyrå av Douglas Adams (sanddancer)
  5. 83
    To Say Nothing of the Dog av 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 av 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 av Jim C. Hines (TomWaitsTables)
  8. 41
    The City of Dreaming Books av Walter Moers (ShelfMonkey)
  9. 74
    Shades of Grey av Jasper Fforde (shallihavemydwarf)
  10. 96
    Svindlande höjder av Emily Brontë (lauranav)
    lauranav: The Eyre Affair has a great scene of an anger management session in Wuthering Heights!
  11. 42
    Den trettonde historien av Diane Setterfield (norabelle414)
  12. 21
    The Manual of Detection av 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 av Adam Felber (fyrefly98)
  14. 00
    The Blackouts av Robert Brockway (TomWaitsTables)
  15. 00
    Just One Damned Thing After Another av 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 av Randal Graham (ShelfMonkey)
  17. 00
    Never the Bride av Paul Magrs (jonathankws)
  18. 22
    Who's Afraid of Beowulf? av 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.… (mer)
  19. 11
    The D. Case: Or The Truth About The Mystery Of Edwin Drood av Carlo Fruttero (jonathankws)
  20. 00
    The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep av 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...

Edit Oct 2021 re-read: I decide to re-read the first two books in this series before continuing but I didn't realize it had been more than 5 years since I first read this! This is definitely a solid four-star read for me now. I think I appreciate the humor of this book more than 16-year-old me did. This is a very fun alt-history book about books and I'm excited to re-read the next book and then continue on with the rest of the series.
***************************

More in the 3.5-3.75 star range but I'm rounding up. It wasn't as attention grabbing as some of the other books I've read in the recent past but still enjoyable. Once I got to the last few chapters I finished it pretty quickly but the rest of the book was just enjoyable. I did like the premise of the literature blending with our world and characters traveling back and forth and literature being taken very seriously. None of the characters really left a lasting impact on me but I did like reading their story. I will probably read the next book in this series and I will enjoy seeing what comes next. What I did really appreciate about this book was the world building. I love seeing the ways their world is similar yet different from ours. I am excited to see what happens in this world in the next book. ( )

Great Idea (I LOVE Rochester even though I've never read Jane), Genius way of carrying it off (A Heroine called Thursday), and 2 "r-rated" words in the middle! Not to mention the hundreds of "s-word" uses. Gracious. If you're that intelligent you could think up less offending words to use. Those words I can do without. ( )

Yeah, baby, this is a universe where I would fit; there's a whole police force dedicated to literary crimes! It's an awesome idea and Fforde's execution is really very good, although I'm not normally a sci-fi or war-story fan and have some problems with those bits. There's an abundance of zany characters and events that bring Hitchhiker's Guide to mind, so if you like that one this might be for you. I absolutely love all the literary references and the arguments within the different groups, but am wondering what someone who hasn't read these books or heard of these arguments think of them - do they detract from the plot? Fforde does explain the pertinent points of the books so that it shouldn't matter if you haven't read them. Will definitely read more in the series! ( )

Great weird worldbuilding-- all the comparisons to Douglas Adams do not go amiss, though Fforde's prose style and storytelling don't quite reach the same heights here (a difficult goal, certainly).

I loved all the wacky names and the alternate history stuff, and the premise of people crossing the boundaries between reality and fiction. I was expecting everything to be a little more tied together-- like, I get that a lot of the alt history happened because of time travelers (incl Thursday's dad) popping in and out of the past and messing around with things, but I thought there'd be a big reveal that history really started diverging when some major literary character became real way back in the past, or that time travel exists because someone in the future pulls a time machine out of a book, etc, etc. Instead it just ended up being basically "there's a lot of weird stuff in this world, huh", which is fine but just not what I was expecting. Maybe later on in the series.

My favorite part of the book is, I think, the existence of the LiteraTecs in general. The "everyone is obsessed with classic literature" is a great central worldbuilding element, and the recurring Rocky Horror-style Richard III performance seems spectacular, as is all the other Shakespearean/Baconian/Marlovian nonsense. I was less enamored with the Jane Eyre stuff on the other hand... it seems weird to me that this book treats Jane Eyre with such boring reverence, while treating Shakespeare with such wonderful irreverence. I think one of the weaknesses of this book is that it doesn't know what makes a compelling romance, and, case in point, Fforde seems to be laboring under the misapprehension that Edward Fairfax Rochester is not an enormous tool. I'm only somewhat joking about this being a major problem.

Overall: fun read, misses the mark in a few ways.

Oh, and the cover design is great. ( )

It was fun and full of literary references. Basically, a quest to stop the alteration and destruction of literary works such as Martin Chuzzlewit and Jane Eyre. ( )

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.
tillagd av Katya0133 | ändraYale 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.
tillagd av Shortride | ändraSalon, 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.
tillagd av jburlinson | ändraLocus, Jonathan Strahan (Aug 1, 2001)

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.
