What an unusual story and I mean that in the most positive way. As a dystopian fan I thought that pretty much all futuristic societies had been covered, but heck no. Mr. Fforde goes and dreams one up that is built on the color spectrum. I listened to this one in audio and it was extremely fun to hear the characters speak with a British accent. And speaking of the characters I just loved them! Unfortunately this bock is part of a series and it doesn't look like part two is coming out any time soon. (rats!) I will definitely be reading more from this author.
