Coming towards the end of The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin. Thoroughly enjoying it. It does a great job of presenting an alternative to our present, dominant system. From an outsider's perspective. It shows how inconceivable some of its characteristics and excesses would seem if you hadn't grown up immersed in them. Fantastically written, too.

@neil Sounds great! It has been on my reading list for ages so I'm moving it waaaay up :)
