I was expecting something out of Max Headroom by the escription which would not have been bad The author brought it in a Ranchers Perfect Baby Rescue direction Iid not see coming Second book I have enjoyed by the author that Silent Confessions deals with a possible future without having toeal with A Texas Holiday Miracle diseases or zombies Firstly Iid receive an advanced copy of this book for the purpose of an honest review I had read the End of the World Running Club by Walker which was a cracking good story so was uite excited to get Colours Having just finished binge reading all of the Howey s Wool series Adrian Walker
Had Uite A Story To Keep Me uite a story to keep me withHe gone and 74 Seaside Avenue done it with Colours Without letting the cat out of the bag and spoiling a compelling story Colours on the surface is a very simple yarn buton t let this fool you The story itself has many layers to it and the characters extremely eep Walker has found a way in a few pages
add so much to them with out making them contrived and allowing the reader to make their own opinions of themScience Fiction Yes alarmingly just around the corner Brilliant and honest story telling Fantastic to the last page truly hoping for Eagerly awaiting Book 2 I wasn t uite sure what to expect when I started reading this novel I loved End of the World Running Club and The Last Dog in the World but the start of Colours is very ifferent and it took me a couple of chapters to really get into it But I am so glad I kept reading because by chapter 3 I was hooked I loved it A very unusual story reminding me in one or two places of David Mitchell s Cloud Atlas and also the uirky and brilliant imaginings of Philip K Dick If you have ever spent any time working in the corporate world you will appreciate the satirical tone of Colours and its clever use of the jargon and ubiuitous buzzwords The Underground people in particular are a The Loving Gift delight And the characters and settings are well thought out with a plotline that keeps you turning the page I am so looking forward to the next book in the series as I want to know what happens to everyone in Leafen and those who are now on the other side of the Fabrik for a whole multitude of plot reasons Highly recommend if you like original and offbeat stories with a cast of veryifferent and often flawed characters well written and laced with clever humour and The Wildcatter dialogue Fi.

START TO THE SERIES I LIKEto the series I like premise of a world ominated and run by business and what that would mean for the people living in it Walker has created some sympathetic characters and set up some intriguing links to make you want to read the next book Looking forward to it Lucky enough to receive an ARC of the new book by Mr Walker and I really enjoyed it I read End of the World Running Club last year 5
Stars for that one and immediately added Mr Walker to my favoritefor that one and immediately added Mr Walker to my favorite list Without giving anything away this book takes place in a well realized future world run by corporations rather than governments I was afraid a book like this might step too far into heavy handed social commentary for me but Mr Walker id not stray into that territory instead providing a well told tale that stayed interesting and was peopled with characters that were well Her Nine Month Confession developed and hadepth to them Well A Southern Reunion done Mr Walker you remain on my list of must read authors The book wrapped up with good closure for the ending but with enough interesting story linesangling to make good bait to attract readers to a seuel I am so glad that this wasn t my first Adrian J Walker book because if it had been it would have been my last and I would have missed out on some of my absolute favourite books I so enjoyed End of the World Running Club The Last Dog on Earth and Other Lives so this book felt like it had been written by someone elseI found it Let It Go difficult to identify with or like any of the characters in the story There were just so many of them and to me it feltisjointed Perhaps because it s the first book in the series it s setting up the big cast for the next books I Charade of Hearts don t know but I m honestly not interested in finding outI will continue to read this author s books and totally recommend the ones mentioned above This once justidn t grab me like the others Colours is set in a future where corporations have taken the place of governments People with jobs live inside the Corporations the masses without jobs are the Hoards living just outside the giant box and then of course there are the people who refuse to live as part of the Hoards or the Corporations and they are even further away where the sky is still true blue and the sun true yellow where the colours are still true and the weather isn t contro.
