Reviews of Shades of Grey (Flipback Ed):

Full of brilliantly inventive wordplay and quirky fabrications' -- Mail on Sunday 'Fans of the late Douglas Adams or, even, Monty Python, will feel at home with Fforde' -- Herald 'SHADES OF GREY has something of a flavour of Terry Gilliam's Brazil...but the novel is much gentler than Gilliam's savage madcappery, and Fforde's world is more old-fashioned public school than bureaucratic nightmare' -- Guardian 'Full of colourful characters and amusingly bizarre plot twists... SHADES OF GREY is a clever and enjoyable read' -- SFX Magazine 'There are distinct shades of Orwell's 1984' -- Daily Express
