The characters spend time dissecting complex ideas such as, in a world such as New Earth where violence of any kind is strictly forbidden, are there circumstances under which violence is a good thing? The connection between the deeply serious and the highly playful is in some ways homage to the Horation dictum that the purpose of literature is to teach and to delight This world also had the typical dystopian faction system, this time card colours dictated how you lived life and what jobs and money you got.

But if they lose. May kotick, Adreonna rated it it was amazing. There are a few who are aware of this fact, but most go about their lives believing that their world is the only world.
