One of the best examples of speculative science fiction ever. Loved this as much as 1984. This will be mailed to a fellow bookcrosser.

the 4th in the jess1 package. Someone said to compare this with Orwell's 1984. Hmm, now where are those pesky orwells...
Thank you jess, for a reason to neglect the computer!

Super. He brings up things I've pondered for a long time. I love a good story, and especially one that poses big questions. Is happiness all it's hyped up to be? What if we had no choices, would we miss them? Suppose we really had all that we needed and most of our wants and whims fulfilled. Would our problems be over? In a world where everyone had food, clothing, shelter, medical care, satisfying work, abundant sex, no religions -what would we strive for? Which path are we humans on, which should we be on? Should we do something just because we're capable of doing it? Especially powerful questions with the technology we have today, and soon will have. I wish Huxley could see our modern world.
