April 2013: The Eyre Affair

27003Book: The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde
When: April 26th, 7pm
Where: Alejandra’s House (see pingg invite)

Synopsis: This novel might be called “James Bond Meets Harry Potter in the Twilight Zone.” In fact, the reader plays “name that literary reference” through most of this zany work, where characters wander around in time from the Crimean War through the present and into the future, and in and out of novels including, of course, Jane Eyre. The narrator, Tuesday Next, is a tough, gun-totin’ heart-of-gold heroine with a pet dodo, a true love she has refused to acknowledge and a brilliant, dotty scientist uncle named Mycroft. Her job is to rescue literary characters kidnapped out of books from being wiped off the face of every copy of a work by tracking down and outwitting the purely evil Asheron Hades and Goliath Corporation greedyman Jack Shit. Throughout, discussions of who really wrote Shakespeare’s plays abound, along with send-ups of every literary genre from the highest to the lowest brow. Sastre’s reading works particularly well because she’s good at the straight narrative, while the nature of the book’s language makes melodramatic voices for the other bizarre characters.

This article reviewed some basic information to keep in mind, as well as how you can find options to order remedies. But, there are companies that sell prescription drugs to customers who need them at low costs. There are drugs intended only for children. This article tell more about “cialis dosage“. Is it possible to prevent ED? This product tell more about the signs of erectile dysfunction and “cialis dose“. Other question we are going to is “http://goodpageabout.com/cialis-side-effects.html“. Finally, erection difficulties can be an early warning sign of earnest health problems, such as diabetes. Note, if you have any other questions about the matter ask your heartiness care producer.

    I’m looking for a book club and am intrigued by the April Selection. I have a few questions about the format. For example do we read the entire book prior to the meeting date; then discuss? Please contact me for details of your meeting and location.

    I live in NW Austin and am always happy to host events.

    Thanks,

      Hi Anne! I responded to you via e-mail. We do read the book before meeting each month and then we hang out, eat and drink and enjoy the discussion!
