Found it interesting to read what appears to be a socialist manifesto and an argument for more government. Laying the politics of the novel aside, the story is very graphic in parts but the characters are interesting and the story line captures you early on and before you know it you are on the last page. It is not as good as "Brave New World" or even "1984", but when reading utopian literature this is a good, well written antithesis to those two novels.
