Well, yeah, but in the end it seems that neither of us was terribly impressed by it.

Shannyn I felt the same way about the last 1/3 or so of the book. Too much redundant ideology and focus on just 1 or 2 of the characters.

Tracey Madeley As a contrasting opinion I thought Brave New World was incredible. Yes, it is very ideological and political and if you don't like that sort of thing I can understand you loosing patience with it.
i thought the gentic manipulation of IQ was shocking, the subliminal conditioning and disengagement frightening and the banning of books appauling. The price of stability being freedom.
Equally the reservation sufferred from primative superstitions and prejudice.
Surely the point of a dystopian novel is to inspire you to change society before it's too late. All Post Modernists will tell you there are no more meta-narratives (big ideas) that all ideology is redundant in this fragmented, globalized world and don't forget to take your soma.

Geoff I really like your review. Have you checked out leebrii.com? It's a streamlined approach to connecting people & books. It would be great to have you join the community.

Thanks, Geoff. And no - I have never even heard of that site; but in all honesty, I think trying to keep up with just one book site is taking up quite a bit of my limited time, so I think I'll just stick with GR for now.

Rafael Corvera burciaga I liked -and agree with- your review, there were parts on the book in which i felt angered, on other parts i felt absolutely disgusted by them. And the characters! none of them are likeable.
But i really liked the story though.
