Dr_Kosmas The enjoyment you will get from the book is heavily connected to the mindset you go into it with. If you go in looking for something similar to the modern dystopia books (Hunger Games, Divergent, etc.) in theme or content, you will be very disappointed.
However, If you read it as an analytical think piece, you will find it one of the most interesting reflections on the nature of authority ever put to print.
