SHADES OF GREY - JASPER FFORDE
What if social classes were ranked by the colours they perceived?
“2.5.03.02.005: Generally speaking, if you fiddle with something, it will break. Don't.”
― Jasper Fforde, Shades of Grey
I'm the first the admit that sometimes there are novels that far outpace my intellectual capacity. Shades of Grey is clever, articulate, and unlike any other book I've read. It's funny, it's strange, and ultimately, it challenges the reader's perspective of reality and truth.
Shades of Grey is one of those novels that will blow the socks off some, and stagnate with others - fortunately, I fell somewhere between the two extremes.
Should you read it? Absolutely. Should you love it? No. No matter what people say.
