it was ok
bookshelves: dystopia, for-college
Read from September 11 to 18, 2011 — I own a copy

The orgies saved it from making me fall asleep into a boredom coma, but since I've read SO much like this, it felt sorta flat. Which sucks, since it is one of the originators of the genre.

I think I also rather the scarier and more malevolent Big Brother of Oceania to the human farming and happy sexual freedoms of the World State. I get why it's creepy and dystopic, but it was a bit too... positive for my tastes.
