I very much want to read the next installments in the series, and hope it will not be another two years before I get to do so.
Like Fforde's other books, the plot is complex, the characters have odd motivations, his worlds make sense....but only when he describes them.
For the Jasper Fforde fans: I loved the Thursday Next books, and liked the Nursery Crimes Series, but Shades of Grey is amazing.
It's probably my least favorite Fforde novel. I read the whole time hoping I wouldn't be confused, which didn't happen.Published 14 days ago by ashley grimaldi

A fascinating theme based on mandatory synesthesia. Rather amusing, although author has tragic affinity for spoons.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
Another winner from Fforde; less whimsical than his other work, but it makes up for it in intrigue and ideas.Published 1 month ago by C. Doyle
This is utterly wonderful. Jasper Fforde is my favorite author and I love that this is entirely his own invention. I can't wait for more to come out!Published 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
Fforde's imaginative writing is always a delight and this one is top notch. Not really sci fi or fantasy, his novels are a genre yet to be labeled.Published 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
It's odd that sometimes it's easier to write about books you didn't like than books you did, as if the qualities of a book you love will get ruined by trying to write about them,... Read morePublished 3 months ago by HHB
