Imagine being an artist who could only see a few colours. We get to explore that concept, and much more, in this original story. ‘Chasing Roy G. Biv’ is the first book in the Broken Worlds series by Grace Templeton. An intriguing title for an interesting and unique book. This is a dystopian story that has some sci-fi elements, fantasy, drama, good world building, and well-crafted characters.
This is the first book that I have read by Ms. Templeton, and I was curious about it, because of its unusual title- I needed to know what it meant/was about. I was drawn into the complex story, which had quite a lot going on in it. While, for the most part, the story was easy to follow- there were parts that were quite ‘busy’ and just a little confusing.
Rose Thomas lives in a world where seeing all the colours of the spectrum is not a birthright. All the people here can only see limited colours- to be able to see more, they need to find their soulmate, who will enable them to see and complete their full colour range. But, there is a time limit for finding their soulmate- so, if they haven’t found one by the time they turn thirty, they are then ‘eliminated’.
Rose is an art student, who despite her handicap, manages quite well. She also works part time in the gift shop at the art museum. She hasn’t connected to anyone yet- and at twenty-one, her time to do so is diminishing. Quite unexpectedly she is drawn to not just one person, but seven other people. This is where the story gets interesting.
As this is the first book in the series, I am intrigued by where the author will take the story in the second book.
Thank you, Ms. Templeton!
In a new twist on a dystopian world we are plunged into the world of Rose Thomas. She is among those that are limited to the colors they get to see. It takes finding ones soulmate to unlock the colors of the rainbow, so to speak. Throw in the twists and turns, like having a time limit set on when you must find this soulmate and Rose’s time frame fading fast to find the one that will unlock her heart and her world of color. Even bigger twists are to come when Rose has feelings for not one, not two, or even three, but SEVEN different people. What will happen and who will she pick? Will she be forced to choose one or none or will she get a chance to love each person of the seven for the reasons she feels drawn to them.
I loved that this was different and set itself out above and beyond, the typical dystopian sci-fi young adult novels that we have been seeing a lot of lately. I can’t wait to see what will come next in this series!
Honestly, this book could be a look at the political environment of today. Some classes are considered 'less than' and everyone is looking to find their Nirvana. Nirvana to some is finding their soulmate who has a color that they are lacking. One never knows when their soulmate will arrive and some people have multiple soulmates (poly relationships?).
I enjoyed the concept of this book. The fact that we are all searching for something and, in a sense, judging everyone else is a common condition of the human spirit. To see an artist get her colors back, a wayward son become "whole" again, a cop to be healed, etc. was so nice to read.
An interesting side note. For some reason, the version of the book that I read was missing the second L in all words that contained 2 Ls. Al the time I was total y wondering al about fol owing someone's footsteps without real y knowing what they are going through and THEN I thought... Ohhhh it's like the missing "L" You know it's supposed to be there, and look right over it because it's missing and you know it's not going to appear.
I look forward to reading the rest of these stories to find out if everyone gets their rainbow.
