Shades Of Grey – Jasper FForde (AUDIOBOOK) – 05.06.20

I remember reading this book ages ago and really liking it, so when I saw it going cheep as an Audible audiobook I bought it. Set in a very controlled hierarchical society where most people have lost the ability to see much colour and one’s position in society is determined by how much of certain colours you can see, it is an interesting mix of PG Wodehouse type buffoonery and very dark dystopian themes which strangely works really well! Its funny, intriguing and thought provoking, and the ending leaves one gasping for more. The book was supposed to be the first in a trilogy, but since it came out in 2011 there’s been no sign of another book in the series. Come on Jasper FForde, don’t leave us hanging like this!!
