About the Author

Reviews

'Full of brilliantly inventive wordplay and quirky fabrications' -- Mail on Sunday 'This colour-coded world of black-and-white regulations and heirachies is created with spry invention and wit' -- Daily Mail '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 'A brilliantly written book- full of witticisms, wordplay and puns' -- News Of The World 'Fforde's books are more than an ingenious idea. They are written with buoyant zest and are tautly plotted ... and are embellished with the rich details of a Dickens or Pratchett' -- Independent 'No summaries can do justice to the sheer inventiveness, wit, complexity, erudition, unexpectedness and originality of the works, nor to their vast repertoire of intricate wordplay and puns' -- The Times
