This is not a novel, it's a polemic. I heard better utopian delusions in college.

Although it's well written and many moments feel straight out of a Mel Brooks film, it doesn't feel like it knows who it wants to appeal to.

A commentary of social morays in the near future. entertaining because of when it was written. seems like we missed the turn off for this time line.
