A good, classic read, nice and short, though nothing I could really sink my teeth into. I'm not sure if it was the unbelievability of the future (but whether that's the writing/plot, or just my differeing view of the future, I'm not sure); the characters were all ignorant, noble, 19th century men, with barely a women in sight. The thoughts about the future certainlly give you something to think about, but just wasn't really anything I enjoyed.
