This inventive dystopian novel set in a society that has a caste system based on which colours one can perceive and precisely how much of it one can perceive, was a fun read. It took a long time to get going, but once it did, I was along for the ride and was engaged. I liked the characters, particularly Jane. Fforde's writing style is very descriptive. There is a lot of exposition in this novel and I thought that had the world been any less dynamic and different from ours, it would have been overkill. But I enjoyed reading about the particularities of the world the Fforde builds because it was just so unique. Also, the vocab! I'm pretty sure I learned about 30 new words while reading this.
