Beyond my most favorite book ever! I read this book for the first time 20 years ago. My copy of this book is now floating around in Nicaragua somewhere. Note to Self: Do not loan books out to friends going on vacations.

I am intent on rereading this book, and I know it will definitely have a different relevance in comparison to the first time I read it in relation to the state of the world today. If you like 1984 by George Orwell and Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, you should enjoy this book.
