I read something recently about a book where the plot is that society is divided up according to what colours people can see. I think it may have been that each part of society can only see one type of colour. The man in it then meets a woman who only sees grey.

I'm not sure where I read about this - it may be a new book that was mentioned in an article about what is coming out this year, but I really can't remember anything more about it. Does anyone know what it is?

I'm sorry I have no idea what this is, but it sounds fascinating! I hope someone responds, I'd love to read it!

I posted on another website and someone replied and put me out of my misery It is Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde which will be released later this year. I had obviously read about it in an article about books coming out in 2009. I'll definitely get a copy when it is released, which I think may be July.

Many thanks! I was hoping someone would come up with the title; sounds interesting, and I like Fforde.
