    I listened to this as an audiobook just recently and I was absolutely blown away by itThat said I don’t know how I’d describe the entirety of it to someone If I were to summarize it it would sound well kinda dumb Let me say this instead It’s funny without being goofy It’s clever without being pretentious It’s or

    A happy accident my book club was reading 50 Shades of Gray and it just so happens that I missed the gathering sorry gals where this was chosen With that 50 left off the title and another incarnation of gray specifically grey I reuested the wrong book from the library I'm so very happy I did It's probably one of THE most imaginative books I've read in a very long while I enjoyed it immensely I completely expected to despise the re

    the world of Shades of Grey is a nightmarish dystopia a ruthless totalitarian regime that destroys all individualistic spirit all creativity and ambiguity and uestioning of authority; a monstrous government that divides its citizens into color stratified classcaste systems that is based upon the inherent physical deficiencies of its populace; a place with no love and where death is the end result for the underdog and m

    Don't read this book Seriously Wait until nos 2 3 in the projected series have come out then take yourself off to a beach or a comfy sofa somewhere for the weekend and just blow through them all in one great binge because it will take so much concentration and devotion to keep up with the stunning intricacies of Fforde's latest that it's wasted effort not to just immerse for a bit Trust me I've read everything he's wr

    50 stars Another superb novel by one of the best writers that not everybody reads working in speculative fiction I am continually impressed by Fforde's imagination writing and his supreme talent for incorporating both well known and obscure references to literature and pop cultureWith this novel Fforde begins a new series

    Fforde is a satiric word weaver and I always look forward to reading whatever he pumps out Thursday Next is my literary hero and while the Nursery Crime books weren't up to snuff they weren't bad just not as interesting as a dashing cheese smuggling book jumperShades of Grey is the beginning of a new dystopian trilogy situ

    I've been on a dystopian kick over the last several months and it was interesting to read this one so soon after Brave New World; Jas

    This is my second attempt to read this book I think I struggled my first time as I think I expected something kind of silly like the Thursday Next or the Nursery Crime series While this book certainly has a number of silly elements this is also a book I found had an underlying sense of dread and real mystery Mystery as we

    Surely there's to writing a book than simply having a good idea?This book is based on a good idea but it reads like it was written by a computer programme and commissioned by that bloke in Marketing who seems to ha

An astonishing hotly anticipated new novel from the great literary fantasist and creator of Thursday Next Jasper Fforde As long as anyone can remember society has been ruled by a Colortocracy From the underground feedpipes that keep the municipal park green to the healing hues viewed to cure illness to a social hierarchy based Shades of PDFEPUBupon one's limited color perception society is dominated by color In this world you are what you can see Young Eddie Russett has no ambition to be anything other. A happy accident my book club was reading 50 Shades of Gray and it just so happens that I missed the gathering sorry gals where this was chosen With that 50 left off the title and another incarnation of gray specifically grey I reuested the wrong book from the library I m so very happy I did It s probably one of THE most imaginative books I ve read in a very long while I enjoyed it immensely I completely expected to despise the reading experience as it s a dystopian read I m not a fan of the dystopian genre Fforde s book is the exception to my rule I suspect his plentiful humor played largely into making the experience a pleasant one Most dystopian books are missing humor I suspect if humor was a common thread in this genre though I might have another opinion on itMaybe all you 50 Shades of Gray readers were reading the wrong book Maaaaaybe you should ve read this one instead

Ait to display in a society that demands total conformity gets the better of Eddie who beings to wonder Why are there not enough spoons to go around Why is everything and everyone barcoded What happened to all the people who never returned from High Saffron And why when you begin to uestion the world around you do black and white certainties reduce themselves to shades of grey Part satire part romance part revolutionary thriller this is the new world from the creative and comic genius of Jasper Fforde.. I ve been on a dystopian kick over the last several months and it was interesting to read this one so soon after Brave New World Jasper Fforde offers up some similar ideas but approaches the concept of a totalitarian future society from the same skewed perspective he brought to the Thursday Next series That said I didn t always find this a fun read I might blame it on fatigue but I found the first half of this one really slow going It takes Fforde a long time to set up his world slowly revealing how the different colors people see influences their standing in society and the way the government functions as a whole After 200 pages of largely plotless world building I was begging for some lazy blatant exposition if only to get the story movingThe plot finally does kick in and the last 100 pages or so provide a pretty satisfying setup for the two seuels advertised on the last page and I expect those books will go a lot smoothly with the heavy lifting out of the way
