    Perfect story about deranged global nanny states & the mechanisms they adopt in order to implement/enforce the systemic control of its citizens it’s the only book i’ve read 3x times, & 20+ yrs since my last read, i’m excited to give it another run-through
  • Favorite

    By Pandagirl3100
    10/10 easily my favorite book (the ending made me extremely upset but like ??? It also makes sense??? Like of course that's a thing that happened and it really shows how dystopic things were and it shows that happily ever after doesn't realistically happen, but also, WHY)
  • Really Good Book!

  • Landmark Novel

    How can you possibly give one of the most important books ever written a 1 star review? Read this book folks as it becomes, unfortunately, more relevant every day.
