The Big Over Easy de Jasper Fforde (2005)

  1. 80
    The Well of Lost Plots de Jasper Fforde (FMRox)
    FMRox: This book includes the characters from The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde as a mild developing plot.
  2. 20
    Fables, Vol. 01: Legends in Exile de Bill Willingham (TomWaitsTables)
  3. 21
    Rivers of London de Ben Aaronovitch (souloftherose)
    souloftherose: It's difficult to explain this recommendation without giving spoilers to one or other of the books. There were certain plot elements to Rivers of London/Midnight Riots which made me think of The Big Over Easy. And both books have a well-developed sense of humour.… (més)
  4. 10
    Last Tango in Aberystwyth de Malcolm Pryce (LittleKnife)
    LittleKnife: Both mysteries with offbeat humour set around real places in the UK
  5. 21
    The Book of Lost Things de John Connolly (jonathankws)

    The Case of the Little Bloody Slipper de Carlie St. George (Euryale)

    Amberville de Tim Davys (wisemetis)

    Who's Afraid of Beowulf? de 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 including Expecting Someone Taller, and Flying Dutch, but they may be difficult to find at your library or bookstore.… (més)

I had forgotten that these are in the same Thursday Next universe. I chuckled and finished it but it didn't sweep me along. The ultimate cause of death in the whodunnit was very good. ( )

Humpty Dumpty is murdered and Jack Spratt and Mary Mary solve the case

Really, really funny and clever. Takes you back to all the nursery rhymes you knew as a child.

So intelligent. So funny. It weaves the speculative in with the real world of detectives in such clever ways. ( )

Absolutely bloody fantastic. Best thing I've read this year. ( )
  wetdryvac | Mar 2, 2021 |
Very fun...I really just enjoyed this book

Just as a caution for more sensitive readers...this contained about my tolerance level for swearing (lots of s@*t dropped) and the murdered body description were somewhat graphic. ( )

[W]hile Thursday Next was a detective and Jack Spratt is a detective, the feel and the tone of this particular, new homage is totally different, new, and a lot of fun.
afegit per Katya0133 | editaFantasy & Science Fiction, Michelle West (Feb 1, 2006)
 
The wildly imaginative Fforde delights in satirizing the clichés of detective fiction.
afegit per Katya0133 | editaLibrary Journal, Michael Adams (Nov 15, 2005)
 
His self-styled "daft novels" are not for the lazy brained but for the actively engaged reader, one who knows the secret pleasures of a word puzzle and can draw on a lifetime of literature.
afegit per Katya0133 | editaUSA Today, Anita Sama (Jul 28, 2005)
 
Outrageous satirical agility is his stock in trade: Mr. Fforde has made that clear in a string of literary parodies that pry well-known characters loose from their native novels and plays.
afegit per Katya0133 | editaNew York Times, Janet Maslin (Jul 22, 2005)
 
Full of allusions and puns on detective fiction and nursery rhymes, Fforde's fifth novel and first in a new series is good fun for all fiction collections. Highly recommended.
