  1. I already studied this novel in class! I remember that I found it rather special, because this kind of notion is not the kind of things that we studied in general

  2. I think that make a world where everything is perfect to make a satire of one society, is a very good idea. Is a way to criticize subtly !

  3. I liked much to study last year an extract of the book! It’s really very interesting to see the satire of the society seen by a famous author!
