it was amazing
bookshelves: scifi
Recommended for: people who love sociological driven scifi
read count: 2

I actually read this book years ago--after seeing the movie--and have to say it was one of the most innovative social-scifi books I've ever read. Simply an amazing look into a future where the religious right has taken control. Full of great characterization, it shows what happens when a rift between religion and human nature collide with devastating results.
