- 1Le Guins story contrasts two worlds with very different political systems: one world (the planet) is very similar to earth, with nations and conflicts, the other one (the planets moon) is an anarchist society.BUY @ amazon
- 2In a near f*ture world, nations have crumbled away and been replaced by new "tribes" like the neo-victorians. The two protagonists are a nanotech engineer who builds an interactive book, and a young tribe-less girl named Nell who ends up with the book by accident.BUY @ amazon
The world Neal Stephenson describes here is just as fascinating as the fate of the protagonits. This book completely changed my opinion of the victorians.
