İlk Erewhon ziyaretinin üzerinden 20 yıl geçmiştir. Bay Higgs, sevgili eşi Arowhena'nın ölümünden sonra Erewhon'u tekrar ziyaret etmeye karar verir. Henüz bilmediği şey ise, son ziyaretinin tüm Erewhon'un sosyal ve kültürel yapısını değiştirdiği ve onun bir peygamber olduğunu öne süren dinin tohumlarının ekildiğidir. Erewhon'a gittiğinde yeni peygamber hapse atılacak, kovalanacak, yalana zorlanacak ve sonunda kaçmak zorunda kalacaktır...

So, I finished Erewhon Revisted, the sequel to the satire I had read earlier. I liked the sequel better, though you really need to have read the first book to enjoy it fully.

Better then the first book thought you need to read it to understand what is happening in this book. It is very suprisingly sentimental. The hero of the first book returns to Erewhon to ind out he has been made a god. Butler is his most effective in making fun of religion.
bought this by accident when actually looking for the original erewhon.. doh.. will give it a go still though
