it was ok
bookshelves: science-fiction, childrens-literature
Read in January, 2012

Interesting, but I didn't love it. I can't argue with the idea that we waste too much time on things (television, internet, etc) that do not matter and in so doing give up some of our freedom and, one could argue, humanity; but still the premise seems very far fetched. (I've never been comfortable with hypnotism, and I find the events suggested here eerily like the explorations of George du Maurier.)
