Early Riser | Jasper Fforde
post image

I‘ve been absent from here a few days now as I‘ve been in the final throes of writing, getting a manuscript ready to go to the editor by the end of the week - this was me pre-coffee at 5:30am yesterday! It‘s been a productive time though, and I really do love being a writer!

LeahBergen You certainly look lovely for pre-coffee! Me? Not so much 😆 4h
RachelAmphlett @LeahBergen thank the B&W effect 🤣 4h
DaveGreen7777 WOO-HOO! Wishing you the best with your manuscript! 😀 56m

Early Riser | Jasper Fforde

Pickpick

Over the past couple of months I've made a significant dent in my BOTM collection. This, my first Fforde, is a serious contender for the strangest BOTM I read this year. There's so much happening all at once, it's a bit of a corporate dystopia, seasoned with Crouchean "what is reality" philosophy & the breezy yet effective satire of Pratchett. Strangely enough it all worked for me, but I could see it not working for everyone. Very unique.

JanuarieTimewalker13 Great review!! I‘m curious about this one, although it wasn‘t one of my picks. 2w
Cinfhen Great review/ my #BOTM backlog is ridiculous 2w

Early Riser gets the ☕ & 🍞 (peppermint iced coffee pairs nicely with the winter setting; banana bread matches the🍌👖 feeling) This is my ffirst Fforde (couldn't resist) & although I'm only 60 pages in I'm sure I'll be reading more by him.

Godpants Oh you‘re in for a treat. Shades of Grey is another great stand alone if you want another before you jump into one of his series. 3w
AlaMich I second the recommendation for Shades of Grey. 3w
Lucy_Anywhere I love Jasper Fforde! I third the recommendation for Shades of Grey 2w

Punctuated with Jasper Fforde's distinctive quirky humor, Early Riser is dystopian-light. It's fun, fast, none-too-serious, and will keep you guessing as to which of these asshats is actually the enemy right up to the end.

PLUS there is a bonus cool thing about it that is a spoiler which I fucking adore. I've included it in the “spoiler“ comment below. 😊

Zoes_Human You are NEVER told Charlie's gender. A whole book with an ungendered protagonist is fantastic! 4w
