I just finished Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde. It was WONDERFUL! I’ve read all of Fforde’s other books and loved them, but this was the best. This is one of the most superb examples of world building I’ve read in a long while. The characters are instantly compelling and the plot is the perfect balance between gripping and Fforde’s characteristic meandering-and-seemingly-mundane-but-really-essential. I highly, highly recommend this book and hope that the others in the series come out soon.
5 out of 5 stars
