really liked it
bookshelves: dissident-fiction, bohemians, bildungsroman
Read from November 29 to December 03, 2011

Of course it's a violent book. But it also asks if a government could, would it force by physical psychological means to make people "good", which actually doesn't seem to be goodness. Goodness has to come within one's free choice. The slang isn't as hard to understand than I thought it would be.
