Read in November, 2009

This book was recommended to us as a political/social theory commentary so Matt and I read it separately then discussed our interpretations of it. We have also since discovered that it is part of a trilogy so we will read the next two books as well and report.

Although there are disturbing elements in this book it was an excellent read and our thoughts were that it displayed the results of a society that has allowed the love of mankind to wax cold. When love of one another is superseded by self interest, all the worst excesses of society evidence themselves.

Very thought provoking.
