it was ok
bookshelves: fiction, sci-fi-magic-et-al
Read in April, 2006

I took a course on Utopian literature and I always get this book confused with Looking Backwards which makes some since, I guess, as I just learned News was a response to Looking.

This book contains:
- monogamy without official marriage
- no big cities
- socialism all over the place
- creative and pleasurable occupations only
- no standardized education

2 stars, according to what the box tells me when I hover my mouse over it, means that I liked it and that's pretty accurate though I do not anticipate re-reading it for any reason.
