I had a very hard time getting into this book. I don't know if it was just the the audio (not a fan of audio fiction unless its full cast) or the writing, but I was just not interested. About 2/3 of the way through I did begin to enjoy the book and not skip it and move on to a podcast. Eventually I started to care about the characters and then I found out its been almost a decade and the sequel isn't out yet. Sigh. Maybe I'll switch from sci-fi to romance. They always seem to have their sequels out. ( )

i absolutely LOVED this book when i was 14. what an imaginative universe !
  madelinemar | Aug 16, 2021 |
Jasper Fforde has created a richly imagined future that revolves entirely around color, including social standing. Protagonist, Eddie Russett, is a Red: a fine, upstanding young man who wants the best for people. He is easy going and makes friends easily. When he and his father are sent to a remote town because of a mysterious death, Eddie means Jane, who is smart, knowledgeable, volatile, emotional, and ... threatens to kill him. The highlight of the book is their dynamic relationship, and trying to make sense out of strange events. 2.5 stars, rounded up.

A beloved favorite of mine which reads as though Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett had teamed up to write a dystopian novel. ( )
  Zoes_Human | Jun 26, 2021 |
Wow! That was an amazing book. From starting out with such a simple premise, Fforde has created a highly complex world, with characters motivated by everything from simply greed and lust to protection of national interests to loyalty to promotion of self above all others. The characters, while simple in and of themselves, are complex and layered in their interactions. Can't wait for the continuation. ( )

In structure, Shades of Grey moves like most other books in the sci-fi/fantasy genre, but in tone, it has more in common with comic novels such as Catch-22.
 
Fforde is an author of immense imagination. Not satisfied with just a few layers of Dickensian jokes and revisions of the physical universe, he creates an archeological treasure trove for readers.
afegit per Shortride | editaThe A. V. Club, Donna Bowman (Dec 22, 2009)
 
All this is serenely silly, but to dispel a black mood and chase away the blues, this witty novel offers an eye-popping spectrum of remedies.
afegit per Katya0133 | editaKirkus (Dec 15, 2009)
 
It's all brilliantly original, lf his complex world building sometimes slows the plot and the balance of silly and serious is uneasy, we're still completely won over.
afegit per Katya0133 | editaBooklist, Keir Graff (Dec 15, 2009)
 
Eddie navigates a vividly imagined landscape whose every facet is steeped in the author's remarkably detailed color scheme. Sometimes, though, it's hard to see the story for the chromotechnics.

There is no light or colour as a fact in external nature. There is merely motion of material...When the light enters your eyes and falls on the retina, there is motion of material. Then your nerves are affected and your brain is affected, and again this is merely motion of material...The mind in apprehending experiences sensations which, properly speaking, are qualities of the mind alone. —Alfred North Whitehead

It began with my father not wanting to see the Last Rabbit and ended up with my being eaten by a carnivorous plant. It wasn't really what I'd planned for myself—I'd hoped to marry into the Oxbloods and join their dynastic string empire. But that was four days ago, before I met Jane, retrieved the Caravaggio and explored High Saffron. So instead of enjoying aspirations of Chromatic advancement, I was wholly immersed within the digestive soup of a yataveo tree. It was all frightfully inconvenient.
Apart we are together.
