She glanced at her timepiece and noted that she had ten minutes to spare. In an instant she made up her mind. She was going to enjoy her freedom before her meeting with Nick.

Boats from South Africa only travel to the island eight or nine times per…

In the book Brave New World the society that everyone is accustomed makes sure everyone is happy, has a role and title, and there is no crime nor religion. For a society to become a utopia in my opinion, must have these essentials: a society that everyone can be themselves without any worry, crime is a thing of the past, everyone…

Utopia is certainly what our world appears to be. We all have our jobs, our lifestyles. When we change, we can change our surroundings if we wish. Everyone is happy, except for those who are misfits. Those who don’t get along with our law. No one knows what happens to them, just that they get removed. To where? No one knows. To people in Hyacinthum,…
