really liked it
bookshelves: historical-fiction
Read in September, 2008

The basic premise of the book is simple. The political ideas give a valuable insight into the socalist ideas of the ealy C20th. It was a difficult read as the plot doesn't really move on at all, and the character you believe will take the centre turns out to be not as important as you at first assume. The ideas are the main point to the book, and they are detailed and well considered.
