Described as the first book about class war this is an interesting, ideological read. I really regret not getting an unabridged version though, as the constant repetition in over 500 pages did become a little trying. I enjoyed the way the author put his ideas across, but it was totally unsurpring to learn it was not published in his life time. I do feel it was a mistake to publish it in such an unpolished format as proper editoring would have been a great help. The ending felt a little forced but then after so much doom and gloom through out a bit hope was quite welcome.
