Then if anyone at all is to have the privilege of lying, the rulers of the State should be the persons; and they, in their dealings either with enemies or with their own citizens, may be allowed to lie for the public good. But nobody else should meddle with anything of the kind.

This is definately one of the worst books I have ever read. The story doesn't make much sense at all, and each chapter (called books) is about 50 pages, but could be summed up in about 3. It is very boring to read. I would not recommend this book to anyone!
