Inhaltsangabe

There is another 1985, somewhere in the could-have-been, where the Crimean war still rages, dodos are regenerated in home-cloning kits and everyone is deeply disappointed by the ending of 'Jane Eyre'.

In this world there are no jet-liners or computers, but there are policemen who can travel across time, a Welsh republic, a great interest in all things literary - and a woman called Thursday Next.

In this utterly original and wonderfully funny first novel, Fforde has created a fiesty, loveable heroine and a plot of such richness and ingenuity that it will take your breath away.

©2001 Jasper Fforde (P)2013 Hodder & Stoughotn

Kritikerstimmen

"What Fforde is pulling is a variation on the classic Monty Python gambit: the incongruous juxtaposition of low comedy and high erudition - this scam has not been pulled off with such off-hand finesse and manic verve since the Pythons shut up shop. 'The Eyre Affair'is a silly book for smart people: postmodernism played as raw, howling farce." ( Independant)

really good

Ffordes idea of Thursday's parallel timeline is one of the most interesting fantasy I've read (or heard) so far. I totally liked it.
Gabrielle Kruger fits perfectly, and I'm already looking forward to the next book.

A good idea executed ...

The ideas behind the plot are interesting and appealing - a world where books and literature are important but also subject to change and conspiracies - but the execution is ... well, mixed at best and always way too complicated. The main plot simply gets buried under a load of family and emotions of the heroine: all of this could be stretched out over several books and the feeling that one hears more about Ms. Next than one cares to know would be avoided.

And the names give to institutions and adversaries are quite frankly a bit too thick. OK, this is fantasy, but still. Especially since books are the real heroes here - this one should take itself a bit more seriously.

The performance by Gabrielle Kruger fits the book, unfortunately. There could be magic, but alas. I do not know if I will bother with a sequel.

definitely for young readers

This was the wrong book for me but it might be great for teenagers as it offers a lot of phantastic inventions like cloned dodos as pets, a father whose face could literally stop clocks and a heroine that hunts books.
