Erica I read this book in highschool as well and really liked it. In deciding to visit it again, i am finding hidden meaning in many of the pages that I never got when I was in highschool. I agree as I've gotten older the book has become more frightening. I am now a mother and the way they dicuss mothers and fathers in the book as something disturbing and disgusting and fruedian is disturbing. The fact that they take family out of the equation is terrible. They also take away your right to choose, your right to freedom and essentually you aren't anything more than a lab experiment. As I am older now, I can understand where all of these ideas and cynicism came from. This cuold still happen, only it's more of a reality now than a fantasy then.

Mike Ditto for the reading of too many distopian books as a teenager.

Amanda (ALittleBitofFrost) I am 17 and read this book about two years ago for my english summer reading. I really did not like it, mostly because I thought it was boring and really didn't get it. I am currently re-reading it because I could not stop thinking about it and now I'm beginning to understand more about what goes on and what would change if this world came into existence.

J. Keck I read this book many years ago. Disturbingly when I reference it today, the context for the reference is not positive. The older I've become, the more I ponder the story.
