This book is similar to "Brave New World" and "1984" in its description of life in the future. There are also themes similar to the movies "Equilibrium" and "Gattaca". I had read this book back in the 70's and really loved it and had been searching for a copy for years - but it was out of print. Then it became available in Kindle and I snatched it up.

This story takes place about 150-200 years in the future. All war is gone, all individuality is gone, all decisions are made by the government, and regular drugs are administered to keep everyone in the same numb state. A handful of people, however, feel there is more to life and gather together to imagine what other possibilities there are, and where to find this freedom.
