Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Once the story gets going, the paranoid fear of the narrator creates lots of tension. The initial utopia degrades into something that we’re not at all surprised the narrator wants to flee.

Con: The opening infodump is breathtaking in length. It’s not clear why this society bothers to keep it a secret that there are places for people who want to opt out.
