book ´ The Eyre Affair Í Jasper Fforde

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 The Eyre PDFEPUB or police Amidst all this Acheron Hades Third Most Wanted Man In the World steals the original manuscr Hardly an author has styled the parallel universe tropes with breaking the wall elements to such perfection as Ffjorde didThe integration of living literature in a parallel universe as a plot device is ingenious and a potentially endless source of innuendos connotations and options for and similar novels Imagine the same with video games movies or all mixed and it could get big uick depending on the main inspiration and idea of the chosen genres and works I´ve rarely ever chosen such a comparison but I would name similarities to Adams Pratchett Robbins and some others because of the humor character development and uniueness It´s really tricky to get an emotion out of me but this amazing series did it several timesIt´s an unconventional piece of literature a true crossover hybrid that dances at many weddings integrates steals persiflages and makes me wonder why its uality is controversial I see very much cherrypicking regarding the often average character and plot development of comedy and fast told stories that are necessary and essential for telling such a piece of literature It smells for me like an aversion against too progressive unconventional writing style because I could hardly name a series that had both such a great idea realization and universal acclaimed greatness by everyone I recommended it too If we start bashing each author who dares to explore completely new land of storytelling without getting artistic boring Nobel pricy and bad but instead keeps using the rules of the telling game in a brilliant new setting many ideas will get lost It shocked me to hear how long it took Ffjorde to get published and I think that many of the reasons for it lie in this grievance in the tendency to troll true creativity because it´s too unfamiliar and strange to readTo make it clear I don´t mean people who just can´t get warm with his writing style what is a uestion of taste and personal preferences and completely ok I am avoiding many genres tooI am referring to people who rate very good but stereotypical and always the same telling as usual high and are against progressive endeavours Or the extreme other side who love and read much high brow so called literature that is often trash in my eyes but bash popular fiction because of its predictability popularity and stereotypes or if this is not the case as in this case because it´s different Nothing to talk about in academic circles but something out of the line they can´t and don´t want to understand Both groups are enemies of too progressive authors and it´s uite a shame that they instead of staying in their own territory and not poaching in foreign lands try out new things and don´t realize that their problems with the writing could be related to them and their subjective conditioning and thereby aversion and not a fault of an author It´s so clear if someone interested in character based 3 setting novels reads Hard Sci Fi space operas and vice versa shehe won´t be happy with it and don´t like it because it´s not their thing but in this case the own reading preferences seem to have been forgotten It´s like listening to music one hates and saying that the artist is bad etcThis first part of this series has the only problem of info dumping and explaining the world a bit too much instead of directly jumping into action but that´s a widespread issueTropes show how literature is conceptualized and created and which mixture of elements makes works and genres uniue

doc The Eyre Affair

The Eyre AffairIpt of Martin Chuzzlewit and kills a minor character who then disappears from every volume of the novel ever printed But that's just a prelude Hades' real target is the beloved Jane Eyre and it's not long before he plucks her from the pages of Bronte's novel Enter Thursday Next She's the Special Operative's renowned literary detective and she drives a Porsche With the help of her uncle Mycroft's Prose Portal Thursday enters the novel to rescue Jane Eyre from this heinous act of literary homicide It's tricky business al This book may describe my perfect job goal to be able to enter a book and meet the characters ensuring they are following the author's original intentions and not on the loose due to some sort of villain How amazing would that be Awesome kick start to this series I read the first 4 then started to get a little disenchanted but I'll go back one day All book lovers need to give this first one a chance you'll undoubtedly love and hate parts of it
