An anthology of dystopian short stories, a multitude of societies gone wrong. Where you can be killed if you have kids, if you don't have kids or if you are a kid. Where it's illegal to be normal, to be special, to make a scene, to be quiet. A mix of old and new stories, I'd read two before, "The Lottery," and "Minority Report," both worth the reread. I found myself ending the book with a new-found paranoia, perhaps I should have taken it a bit slower and spaced a few other books between.
