Reviews and Notes

Summary/Annotation ->  The New York Times bestseller and "a rich brew of dystopic fantasy and deadpan goofiness" ( The Washington Post ) from the author of the Thursday Next series and Early Riser

Welcome to Chromatacia, where the societal hierarchy is strictly regulated by one's limited color perception. And Eddie Russet wants to move up. But his plans to leverage his better-than-average red perception and marry into a powerful family are quickly upended. Juggling inviolable rules, sneaky Yellows, and a risky friendship with an intriguing Grey named Jane who shows Eddie that the apparent peace of his world is as much an illusion as color itself, Eddie finds he must reckon with the cruel regime behind this gaily painted façade.
