There is no accounting for taste.
I recently reread some Sci Fi I enjoyed as a teenager which I found totally banal 40 years later. Even I have changed.
My daughter enjoyed Jasper's Thursday Next novels but could not get along with Terry Pratchett's work.
As for Shades of Grey there was a comment on Good Reads
"Sorry folks, but I was really disappointed. This book was nothing but exposition. I suspect the next two books are quite good, but I doubt I'll read them. And I found the fact that it all takes place over 4 days very disturbing. It seems impossible. I understand setting up the constraints of this society, but this was too much. I don't know why more people didn't "go to the darkness." I did enjoy the last 50 pages or so. But like Simcha, what happened to the Dad? He just fell of the grid. And yes, thank goodness Jane remained interesting. Being a professor, I'm always interested in hearing the "other side" of an argument."
