Maybe with a different reader
I had a difficult time getting into this book mostly because of the mechanical cadence of the reader. it was also unnerving to have a female reader when the story is told mostly in the first person, which is a male character.
As for the story, it is a fairly typical socialist utopian story depending on a dehumization of society to make it sound rational.
