  • "Color Control Agency employee and House of Red member Eddie Russett experiences discontent with his limited vision when he meets Gray Nightseer Jane, who suggests that their color-blind world was brought about by a disaster that nobody is allowed to acknowledge."
  • "As long as anyone can remember, society has been ruled by a Colortocracy. From the underground feedpipes that keep the municipal park green to the healing hues viewed to cure illness to a social hierarchy based upon oneś limited color perception, society is dominated by color. In this world, you are what you can see. Young Eddie Russett has no ambition to be anything other than a loyal drone of the Collective. With his better-than-average red perception, he could well marry Constance Oxblood and inherit the string works; he may even have enough red perception to make prefect. For Eddie, life looks colorful. Life looks good. But everything changes when he moves with his father, a respected swatchman, to East Carmine. There, he falls in love with a Grey named Jane who opens his eyes to the painful truth behind his seemingly perfect, rigidly controlled society. Curiosity -a dangerous trait to display in a society that demands total conformity - gets the better of Eddie, who beings to wonder: Why are there not enough spoons to go around? Why is everything - and everyone - barcoded? What happened to all the people who never returned from High Saffron? And why, when you begin to question the world around you, do black-and-white certainties reduce themselves to shades of grey?"@en

  • "It's Britain, but not as we know it. Democracy has been replaced by a Colourtocracy. Visual colour dominates society; a hierarchy based upon colour vision. Eddie Russet, with his better-than-average Red perception, could marry an Oxblood, inherit the Stringworks, maybe even make Prefect. But then he moves to East Carmine and falls in love with a Grey named Jane, who opens his eyes to the painful truth behind his seemingly perfect society. Why, when you begin to question the world around you, do black and white certainties reduce themselves to shades of grey?"

  • "Imagine a black and white world where colour is a commodity ... It is the new world of comic and creative genius Jasper Fforde."@en
  • "Es läuft gut für Eddie Russett: Seine Rotsicht ist exzellent, er wird mit etwas Glück auf der Farbskala nach oben heiraten, und sein Leben plätschert angenehm ereignislos dahin - bis zu dem Tag, an dem er sich unrettbar und wider jede Vernunft verliebt. Denn Jane ist nicht nur geheimnisvoll und wunderbar stupsnasig, sie ist auch komplett farbenblind und gehört damit der gesellschaftlichen Unterschicht an: eine Graue! Jane hebt Eddies geordnete Welt aus den Angeln: Plötzlich hat er einflussreiche Feinde, wird mit unbequemen Wahrheiten konfrontiert, und zu allem Überfluss versucht seine Angebetete auch noch immer wieder, ihn umzubringen. Denn Jane hütet ein hochexplosives Geheimnis, und Eddie weiss bereits zu viel ... "Grau" ist das neue Meisterwerk des britischen Erfolgsautors Jasper Fforde. Ein spektakuläres Ideenfeuerwerk und phantastisches Abenteuer um Liebe, Verrat und die unüberschätzbare Macht der Neugier."
  • "Part social satire, part romance, part revolutionary thriller, Shades of Grey tells of a battle against overwhelming odds. In a society where the ability to see the higher end of the color spectrum denotes a better social standing, Eddie Russet belongs to the low-level House of Red and can see his own color but no other. Eddie might have lived out his rose-tinted life without a hitch. But he met Jane a Grey Nightseer from the unlit side of the village. (Bestseller)"

The sky, the grass, and everything in between are all just shades of grey, and must be colorized by artificial means."@en
