JASPER FFORDE THE EYRE AFFAIR PDF

Reading Guide Book Summary Suspenseful and outlandish, absorbing and fun - a novel unlike any other and an introduction to the imagination of a most distinctive writer and his singular fictional universe. Great Britain circa time travel is routine, cloning is a reality dodos are the resurrected pet of choice , and literature is taken very, very seriously. Baconians are trying to convince the world that Francis Bacon really wrote Shakespeare, there are riots between the Surrealists and Impressionists, and thousands of men are named John Milton, an homage to the real Milton and a very confusing situation for the police. Amidst all this, Acheron Hades, Third Most Wanted Man In the World, steals the original manuscript of Martin Chuzzlewit and kills a minor character, who then disappears from every volume of the novel ever printed!

Share via Email Jasper Fforde. I read it for the second time this summer on mostly stationary trains in the rain, as the first book I downloaded onto a brand new Kindle. It brings back, for me, the joy of an unopened birthday present the shape and size of a book — the promise of a new story. A particularly tricky case puts Thursday in the position of policing text itself, as she must prevent villainous Acheron Hades from kidnapping vital characters from literary classics.

The adventure takes her through time, space and literature, as she discovers an unusual talent for actually entering the world of books, and eventually infiltrates Jane Eyre itself in order to save its central characters. Reading a truly good book, the page opens like a trapdoor and you simply fall through.

The Eyre Affair takes that feeling, the moment you lose the sense of yourself and become engrossed in the story, and creates high adventure and wild drama around the porous boundaries between fiction and real life. Reading and re-reading it over two separate summers, I found myself lost in the story whatever format it lived in. Whether turning a page or pushing a button, the result is the same: an engrossing tale takes me away from the drab skies and public transport chaos of British summertime, transporting me to live temporarily inside the world of the story.

The Eyre Affair is a perfect read for those summer times that are more frustrating than relaxing — a great escape and a grand adventure.
