Review by gouarfig
It was OK, but overall a bit too predictable. It felt more like an essay than a novel. Also I thought some of the reaction of some characters didn't feel appropriate to their education or their conditioning. How can the savage have such a vision about the civilisation by reading shakespeare only?
