    1. Largely a polemic against the English welfare state, the unlikely and implausible future we're asked to consider in this novella is one in which criminals have more rights and a better life than non-criminals.The idea that this is somehow likely or plausible is bizarre and outlandish; all sorts of libertarian thinkers have pointed to this book as the future that they think our world is leading to.Waugh is a talented writer. He's no Ayn Rand. Regardless, I still didn't enjoy reading this book.

    2. Read three times, each time with greater pleasure. Don't miss the illustrations, which are included in the Kindle edition of the "Complete Stories."
