Teaser Tuesday - Shades of Grey

Teaser Tuesday
 Shades of Grey by Jasper FForde
Advanced Reading Copy

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers! 
 I found this gem in a book store down the road from my work. I never heard of FForde but thought the concept of the book was not without merit. A post-appocolipit society where social order is strictly dictated by the "Word of Munsell."

If you are true science fiction fan, this book will not disappoint. Concepts that are mind intriguing and original propels this read into an "OMG" this rocks. But hey I like to take a mind trip and this provides that and then some.

There are many different refrences to such things as "The Previous" and "Outer Markers" that keeps my interest peaked. I am about half way through it and am anxiously awaiting answers to my growing pile of questions. It seems to be getting there. So far, this book is a 5 starer (hope I didn't jinx it!)

Here's the Teaser:
"Do you know how many people died in the Mildew outbreak? Eighteen hundred. If I was truly without respect for the Rules - which I'm not, by the way - I'd be over there like a shot. There have to be at least a hundred spoons kicking around - and if I can find one with a postcode that is unregistered. it means we can add another worker to the Collective."
