Description:

First UK edition/first printing of the first of Jasper Fforde's new trilogy. What if everything about your life and the society you live in were dictated by which portions of the spectrum you could see? As measured in a foolproof test administered by the most revered authority in your world? This is the central focus of Jasper Ffordeâ??s exceptional new novel, Shades of Grey. In a society several removes from our own and about 600 years into the future, everyone is calmly and politely living out the lives dictated by the Word of Munsell, or almost everyone. The preferred mode is Stasis; the Previous is inexplicable and uninteresting to most of the population. Odd remnants of the world as we know it survive, although in wildly different forms: Friending has become a powerful social force and feedback ratings fuel status and behavior cues; technology LeapBacks and governmental DeFacting are offset by Loopholery and Standard Variables as people endeavor to interpret the Rules; spoons are a precious commodity; and no one can see the Apocryphal Man. We LOVE this book!. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: It's Britain, but not as we know it. Democracy has been replaced by a colourtocracy. Visual colour dominates society, from the feed-pipes that keep the municipal park green to a social hierarchy based upon one's limited colour vision. Eddie Russett has no ambition to be anything other than a loyal drone. With his better-than-average Red perception, he could marry an Oxblood and maybe even make Prefect. Life looks colourful. Life looks good. But then he moves to East Carmine and falls in love with a Grey named Jane who opens his eyes to the painful truth. Where have all the spoons gone? What happened to all the people who never returned from High Saffron?
