Finishing The Missing Shade of Blue


The Missing Shade of Blue did not disappoint. A delightful read, really. The relationships became messy indeed, and the novel never got stuck in a particular genre. The novel contains many spirited, clever conversations mixed with everyday life and a bit of feel-good and pathos in equal portions.

The play on words became a bit forced sometimes (“I thought he meant…when he said ‘seeing someone’ “), and the philosophical discussions a bit laboured at times (“But is there really such a thing like free will?”). However, a lot of the philosophy and the linguistics were worked into the story really well.

If you’re looking for an intelligent novel with a mix of the hilarious and the absurd, this might be just the book for you.
