‘Shades Of Grey’ by Jasper Fforde

‘Plethora Of Colour Names’
Score: 4/5

Jasper Fforde

I have to say, this one is imaginative! (Also, it's nothing to do with Fifty Shades Of Grey - I thought the title was a deliberate play on the title of the smutty book, but this book was published before the smutty one.)

This book feels a bit like Adrian Mole is the narrator. Only it's not, it's... Well, it's like an annoying version of Adrian Mole. That can be a little hard to take.

That's the downside. The ideas behind the book are fun, and as usual with Fforde books there's an incredible amount of wordplay going on.

I'm intrigued enough to wonder where this series is going...
