Senast inlagd avJJBookAccount, privat bibliotek, mjhunt, WiebkeK, EliMulhall, beermanaj, ekrst, dmcgough
  1. 412
    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. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 40
    Libriomancer av Jim C. Hines (TomWaitsTables)
  8. 74
    Shades of Grey av Jasper Fforde (shallihavemydwarf)
  9. 41
    The City of Dreaming Books av Walter Moers (ShelfMonkey)
  10. 20
    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.
  11. 86
    Svindlande höjder av Emily Brontë (lauranav)
    lauranav: The Eyre Affair has a great scene of an anger management session in Wuthering Heights!
  12. 10
    Schrödinger's Ball av Adam Felber (fyrefly98)
  13. 21
    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)
  14. 32
    Den trettonde historien av Diane Setterfield (norabelle414)
  15. 00
    The Blackouts av Robert Brockway (TomWaitsTables)
  16. 00
    The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume 1 av Alan Moore (interference)
  17. 00
    The Aunt Paradox av Chris Dolley (LongDogMom)
    LongDogMom: Similar style of writing and humour
  18. 00
    Bläckhjärta av Cornelia Funke (Cecrow)
    Cecrow: YA version of the premise about moving in/out of fictional worlds.
  19. 11
    Fables, Vol. 13: The Great Fables Crossover av Bill Willingham (TomWaitsTables)
  20. 00
    The Unwritten Vol. 1: Tommy Taylor and the Bogus Identity av Mike Carey (LKAYC)

I've read this book probably a half dozen times, maybe more, now. I'm not really interested in Jane Eyre or Bronte, and it doesn't matter a whit. Fforde gently feeds you what you really need to know about the other story in order to enjoy this one.

I think this book, and the entire series will appeal to any Biliophibian who is used to losing themselves entirely in a book. The conceit that one can, in fact enter a book, and Fforde's enjoyably ridiculous alternate universe makes for a very enjoyable read. I'd certainly like to attend one of Swindon's Richard II nights, which I think I'd enjoy as much or more than a good Rocky Horror showing. ( )

I had to muddle through the first few chapters and get in the proper mood to read this book, but once I accustomed myself to the writing style and the world that Fforde created, it was a delightfully fun read. ( )
  resoundingjoy | Jan 1, 2021 |
I had a hard time getting into this one, but once I accepted that I wouldn't really understand all of it until I read more of the classics and drink more, I was able to enjoy it more. I started out not liking it, but found myself smiling at the humor in it---especially on the last 100 pages. Shoot, I think I might even miss Thursday. ( )
  pmichaud | Dec 21, 2020 |
Fun romp in an alternate universe full of literature jokes, dodo birds, and time jumping. I typically dislike police procedurals and detective stores, but this had enough fun elements to overshadow that part of the book for me. Thursday is a bit of a straight woman in a weird world, but a relatively interesting character with some demons. Not too deep, a bit cutesy, but a fun diversion. ( )
  JustZelma | Dec 20, 2020 |
This book starts off SLOW. I didn't care for the punny and random/quirky nature in the first half, but once we got to the Jane Eyre parts, I enjoyed the meta parts a lot more. I think there should be more interaction with the Jane Eyre and living-inside-a-book plot, because the rest was not as interesting or engaging for me. 3.5 stars. ( )

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)

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.
