It was totally not what I expected. I was interested in the authors view of what he thought the year 2000 would be. He was only focused on one thing... the workforce. What a boring character Julian West made. The author didnt have much of an imagination when it came to other aspects of 2000. Another thing that made it hard to read was use of words and way of speaking that is no longer used. I understood most everything he was saying, but I needed to really focus to get what he was saying. Makes reading for leisure a little hard. :)

Guy wakes up 113 years in the future-in the far off year 2000. Socialism is in force and eveybody is happy happy happy. I think they're all on soma. Orwell and Huxley would have a bit to say about this-and did.

I read this book in high school expecting more of an adventure story. However, it reads as more of a blueprint for the author's own utopia as told through a series of lengthy dialogues. This format and the lack of a true storyline can make the book extremely dry at parts. Nevertheless, it did a wonderful job of showing how Socialism is supposed to be, and helped to open my eyes to some of the faults in the prevailing "free market is best" ideologies. A must-read for those interested in philosophy, sociology, politics, etc.

In light of the time frame it was written - I was amazed by this futurist look, from way back when!!
