This is a very strange book about a society in the future in which everyone has a perfect place and is on drugs to keep them happy. If you want to have sex with someone you just ask.

But when a boy and his mother (a dirty filthy word) are taken off a reservation, where they live so horribly with mothers and fathers and no soma (the drug that keeps them happy). And things go horribly wrong.

Over all a strange but interesting book, but at times confusing.
