Holy crap! This is an excellent story.

You will it chilling if you, like me, find government surveillance to be creepy.

This is an amazing book in the spirit of 1984, brave new world, and the matrix - Considering it was written in 1970 there is almost nothing "dated" about the novel - its a crisp, fast read - a real page turner. A must read for Sci Fi, political science, and eugenics fans ;)

My favorite book other than George Orwells' "1984". So much relevance to today's forced vaccination movement, RFID chips, etc. to the infamous survelliance state. I think Ira Levin had some foreknowledge of what is to come. He must have been a Freemason is my guess.

Good sci-fi- story about a world run by a supercomputer- Unicomp. Has relevance to current events.
