In the One State of the great Benefactor, there are no individuals, only nu mbers. Life is an ongoing process of mathematical precision, a perfectly ba lanced equation. Primitive passions and instincts have been subdued. Even n ature has been defeated, banished behind the Green Wall. But one frontier r emains: outer space. Now, with the creation of the spaceship Integral, that frontier -- and whatever alien species are to be found there -- will be su bjugated to the beneficent yoke of reason. One number, D-503, chief architect of the Integral, decides to record his t houghts in the final days before the launch for the benefit of less advance d societies. But a chance meeting with the beautiful 1-330 results in an un expected discovery that threatens everything D-503 believes about himself a nd the One State. The discovery -- or rediscovery -- of inner space...and t hat disease the ancients called the soul. A page-turning SF adventure, a masterpiece of wit and black humor that accurately predicted the horrors of Stalinism, We is the classic dystopian novel. Its message of hope and warning is as timely at the end of the twentieth century as it was at the beginning.
